Goal

For revenue you have a cascade flow in Subledger Accounting (SLA) that decides the Reporting Center and Natural account based on the Organization, Sales Order Type, Item Category, and the Customer Account Type. Based on these criteria, you derive what the appropriate Reporting Center and Natural Account should be used to record revenue.

You want to match this same logic for Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) so that the reporting centers match and the appropiate matching COGS to Revenue natural accounts are selected as well.

However, the list of Sources in Cost Management SLA is entirely different from Receivables thus making it impossible to "mimic" the logic.  Because of this you are unable to accurately account for COGS in the same manner that you account for Revenue.

Is there a way for Cost Management SLA to utilize the same sources as the AR SLA?
The issue is that the list of sources for COGS calculations completely ignores the sales order and
any customer information as you have used in past application versions.
