Mandatory fields in CO11N

Dear Gurus,

Scenario description :

Client wants to keep a record of what each technician does in each shift. Two situations are possible:

1. Either the workmen works on some production order.

2. He does some miscellaneous activity which is not related to any production order.

Situation no.1 can be taken care of in std. SAP via the transaction CO11n.

But in situation no. 2, the client wants to book the hours spent by the workmen- These hours are spent on miscellaneous activities like 5s, training, material handling etc.

My question is, how do we record these hours without allocating them to any production order (or any without any routing). The cost of the hours spent is not to be captured against any job.

Is it possible to use CO11N transaction to achieve situation no. 2 i.e. removing the mandatory check of the production order field. In short, in CO11N, production order field is the mandatory field around which other parameters (like op. code, yield etc.) are entered. Can v base our entries around personnel no. instead of production order no. ?

If not, what is the other possible way.

Thanking you in anticipation.
