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
Kostenträger ? = ? 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

Of course, Steve and Matthew were right too.

Why can't we divide up points among several correct answers?

Explanation:
Try to flip-flop between the /en/ and /de/ versions. That entails using a \"Google\" site sweep sometimes, like
placing this in the google terms field--> "site:help.sap.com
Kosten" for example produced the results below in German,
then inserting the \en\ in place of the "de" in the URL.
