ABC Costing in Make to Order of Repetive Manufacturing

I think ABC costing works better only in repetitive manufacturing type of industry, where the amount of production in a given period is steady.
Whereas in a make to order environment ABC may not work well, because the profit and expenditure have to be tracked by order. One order may last for several perods.
