We study quantizations, associativity constraints and braidings in the monoidal category of monoid graded modules over a commutative ring. All of them can be described in terms of the cohomology of the underlying (finite) monoid. The Fourier transform of finite groups gives a corresponding description in the monoidal category of modules with action by a group.
