In our case the meaning of settlement is same but here it is linked with the product costing part.

Here system settles balance between all Debit postings (material issue, activity cost) and all Credit Posting (Goods Receipts of order header material).

Settlement Process has two important element first cost sender and another is cost receiver, in each case cost sender will be fix but we have option to change cost receiver by using settlement rule, here we can define Material account, sales order.

For projects it can be cost center, Asset under construction (AUC) or Asset directly.
