Print Costed Bill of Material

Application Overview

 

Print Costed Bill Of Material prints a selected range of parent items and "rolls up" their costs from the costs of their components.  If you choose, it will show the variance between the parent items' cost on file and the cost calculated from the components.  It also allows you to choose whether or not you wish the report to show active items, obsolete items and/or forecasted items.

 

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

 

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.  Caution: 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.


If the parent item includes costs other than the material -- such as labor, for example -- then it is not desirable to use the option to update the parent item cost. Instead, you should use Plus Work Order posting or Cost Master roll up to update. In that case, this option should be disabled in Global Setup to prevent potential user mistakes.

    Entry Field Descriptions

     

    Name

    Type and Description

    1.      Starting Parent Item No

    15 alphanumeric characters.

    Enter the item number of the parent item for which you wish to print a Print Costed Bill Of Material.

    Default is All.

    2.      Ending Parent Item No

    15 alphanumeric characters.

    Enter the item number of the last parent item for which you wish to print a Print Costed Bill Of Material.

    Default is the starting parent item number.

    3.      Print Active Items?

    Y or N.

    Enter Y to print active items or N to decline.

    This field defaults to Y.

    4.      Print Forecasted Items?

    Y or N.

    Enter Y to print forecasted items or N to decline.

    This field defaults to N.

    5.      Print Obsolete Items?

    Y or N.

    Enter Y to print obsolete items or N to decline.

    This field defaults to N.

    6.      Blow Through Phantom    Items?

    Y or N.

    Component items and subassemblies which are neither stocked nor controlled but which 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.

    7.      Show Component Cost    Variance?

    Y or N.

    If you answer Y to this question the variance between the calc­ulated cost of the parent item and the cost that is in the Item File for this parent, will appear on the report.

    Default is N.

    8.      Number Of Levels To       Explode?

    2 numeric digits (99).

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

    Default is 11.

    9.      Effectivity Date

    A date in the standard date format.

    Enter the effectivity date you wish to use for printing items. This date will be used to determine whether to include or exclude items. If you press RETURN, no selection will be made based upon effectivity date.

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

    Default is no selection based on effectivity date.

    10.    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.

    11.    Update Parent Cost In   Inventory?

    Y or N.

    If you answer Y, the appropriate cost in the Inventory Item File for the parent item will be updated using the total cost of components for the parent.

    If Y is selected, the number of levels to explode set in field #8 will automatically be set to 11.

    Note:  If you set this field to Y but do not select All parent items in field #1, the costs of all sub-assemblies may not be updated.  If it is important that the costs of all sub-assemblies be updated, set the parent item range to All.

    Default is N.

    If the costing method defined in I/M Setup is LIFO or FIFO, parent costs may not be updated and field #11 will appear as follows:

    11.    Cost Type To Display?

    Only A, S, or R, is allowed.

    Enter the item cost to be used in printing the Costed Bill of Material.

    A      =   Average Cost

    S      =   Standard Cost

    R      =   Last Cost

    Entry is required.  There is no default value.
