Generally Maintenance order are overhead only because it is indirectly assiting the production.Hence whatever cost involved in PM will be secondary cost since it is with respect to the cost center

The object class categorizes Controlling objects according to their business function and enables you to analyze cost flows within Controlling from different business perspectives.

<b>The following object classes are available:</b>




Profitability analysis and sales

While certain object types automatically belong to a particular class (for example, cost centers belong to the "Overhead" class), others need to be explicitly assigned to an object class in their master record (this is the case with internal orders and work breakdown structure elements, for example).

since we are settling against the cost center genreally MO will be overhead only

hope you have cleared
