Work Order Plus provides several utilities to calculate standard cost, export routing from Standard Product Routing and recover order transaction level statistics.

Print Costed Bill of Material

Application Overview

Print Costed Bill Of Material prints a selected range of parent items and "rolls up" the costs from the costs of their components.  There is an option to print the variance between the parent item cost on file and the cost calculated from the components.  You can select to print active items, obsolete items and forecasted items.


As the costs are calculated from the bill of material, the sub-assembly costs are calculated if they are flagged as manufactured.  It will not calculate, or explode through, any purchased inventory items, regardless of whether the items are flagged as stocked or non-stocked.  Flagging a sub-assembly as a purchased item is an error in the product structure and may be corrected using the Product Structure File Maintenance application.


In Elliott 7.5, the report can include costs from routing, like labor cost, overhead and outside processes.  It will calculate based on the default routing in the item master file.  If the item does not have a default routing or the default routing does not exist, it will roll up bill of material only.


An important feature of this application is the ability to update the cost in the Inventory Item File for the range of parent items selected.  If the update cost option is chosen, the number of levels to explode will automatically be set to 11.  Only parent items' sub-assemblies within the item range defined in fields #1 and #2 will have their costs updated.  To avoid excluding any sub-assemblies, set the item range to All.


It also offers the option to include components' scrap factor in the calculated cost for each.

Component items and subassemblies which are neither stocked nor controlled but are manufactured are known as phantom items.  Answering Y to this question allows you to blow through phantom items to the real component items, which are down one level.

Default is N.

10.   Show Component Cost    Variance?

Y or N.

Answer Y to print the variance between the calc­ulated cost of the parent item and the cost in the Item File.

Default is N.

11.   Number Of Levels To       Explode?

2 numeric digits 

The number of levels to explode must be 11 to obtain correct cost.

Default is 11.

12.   Effectivity Date

A date in the standard date format.

Enter the effectivity date to use for printing items.  This date will be used to include or exclude items.  Leave this field blank to include all items.

You will not be prompted to enter this field unless both active and forecasted items have been selected for printing.

Default is blank.

13.   Reflect Scrap Factor In Cost?

Y or N.

Enter Y to include each component's scrap factor in the calculation of the extended cost.  Enter N to calculate the extended cost based solely on the quantity required per parent.

Defaults to N.

14.   Update Parent Cost In   Inventory?

Y or N.

Answer Y to update the cost in the Inventory Item File for the parent item using the total cost of components for the parent..
