SAPanese KudoZ questions

These 12 KudoZ questions concern a flow diagram based on SAP R/3. My customer is not SAP but a company that uses R/3, so I do not want to confuse the readers by using any other terms than those in universal SAP use. Sorry, but there is no other context except than the other terms listed here. My own limited SAP resources, general business reference works and my own knowledge indicate the translations shown below marked with ? = ?.

Please tell me if you know for sure that SAP uses different terms or which term is more SAPish if I have listed more than one.

Under SAP PP:

Montage ? = ? assembly
Produktion ? = ? production
AV ? = ? Arbeitsvorbereitung ? = ? work scheduling

Under SAP FI / CO:

Kostenstellen ? = ? cost centers
Kostentrager ? = ? cost objects
Kalkulation ? = ? costing

Under SAP MM:

Produktion ? = ? production
Einkauf ? = ? purchasing or procurement
Lager ? = ? warehousing

The following three items flow between, into or out of the three groups just above:

Abstimmungsaufwand ? = ? reconciliation expense/cost or coordination expense/cost or what???
Integration ? = ? integration
Leitung ? = ? management

TIA

Everyone is right of course, I even got it right. FinTrans was first but Steve's answer also quoted the DE and EN versions of SAPterm. If any body else besides me does not know how to efficiently use the SAP online help system, please try Matthew's method.

Thanks everyone,

Dan

Explanation:
The prior two answerers are right on the money. This term from cost accounting, to my knowledge, has only one translation in English and this is it. When I was taking 'cost accounting' and later reading about it that was the only term I ever saw for this.

Explanation:
It's a great time to saver to work out a system to flip-flop between the /en/ and /de/
versions of the SAP online help. That entails using a \"Google\" site sweep sometimes, like placing this in the google terms field--> "site:help.sap.com
Kostenträger" for example produced the results below in German,
then inserting the \en\ in place of the "de" in the URL.
