Concept of account assignment category for direct usage for particular purposes or consumption.
You specify which account assignment object is to be charged via the account assignment category such as (cost center, sales order, and so on) Which accounts are to be charged when the incoming invoice or goods receipt is posted & which account assignment data you must provide. Account assignment category is used at the time of creation of a purchase order. For normal PO no AAC is used.
If the posting is directly to a cost center(K) or Asset(A) we need this AAC. You can see this at ME21n under item overview.
