Resource consumption

Select this check box to include resource consumption when material consumption is calculated.

Formula

Select a formula that is used to calculate the consumption of raw materials on the BOM line.

The consumption that you set up for an item by using a formula can be proportional to one or more dimensions of the finished item. The Height, Width, Depth, Density, and Constant fields specify conversion factors that are included in the calculation of measurements.

For example, you can measure how much paint is required to paint one square foot of a wooden board.

The options are as follows:

  • Standard – Consumption is not proportional to any dimension of the finished item. Enter the quantity that is used for the finished item.

  • Height * Constant

  • Height * Width * Constant

  • Height * Width * Depth * Constant

  • (Height * Width * Depth/Density) * Constant

If you select a value other than Standard, the consumption of raw materials on the current BOM line is proportional to one or more dimensions of the finished item.

For example, when you calculate the consumption of paint for a board that measures 2.00 x 2.00 feet, the total of 4.00 square feet must be converted to a quantity of gallons of paint. This conversion is completed by using the conversion factors.

If there is proportionality, measurement-based management is useful, because only one BOM and one item must be created. The BOM and item then apply to all measurements of the finished item.

For example, a board has customized measurements for each customer. The consumption of the raw material depends entirely on the measurements that are used to cut the board. Therefore, the consumption can be calculated automatically.

A configuration dimension can be redefined so that other characteristics can be determined in relation to the finished item. For example, for items that are painted, the consumption of raw materials is proportional to the number of times that the item is painted. Therefore, the height dimension can be redefined as the 'number of coats' for painted items.

Quantity

The number of components of the item that are included in one unit or series of the item. If the quantity is calculated per series, specify the basis of the series in the Per series field.

For example, a certain item is generally referred to in 100-pound packages. If there are 10 pounds of component A per 100-pound package, the quantity is 10 per series of 100.

If the current item is produced instead of consumed, specify a negative quantity.

Per series

The number of units for which the Quantity field is valid.

Example

Quantity = 1, unit = liter, and per series = 100.

One liter of the item is required to produce 100 finished items.

Unit

The unit in which the Quantity field is given. By default, the BOM unit is used.

Consumption is

Select whether consumption has a variable or constant volume or quantity.

Constant scrap

Specify a value for constant scrap. Scrap is calculated in the unit of measure that is specified on the BOM line, such as centimeters or inches. Scrap is used to calculate adjusted consumption of raw materials on the BOM lines. For example, some material is used to calibrate the machine before operation.

Variable scrap

Specify a value for variable scrap. Variable scrap is indicated as a percentage. Scrap is used to calculate corrected consumption of raw materials on the BOM lines.

Flushing principle

Select the method that is used to register item consumption against a production order. The options are as follows:

  • Start – The system registers consumption when you start a production order.

  • Finish – The system registers consumption when you update a production order to the report as finished phase.

  • Manual – The program does not register consumption automatically. You must enter the consumption manually on the picking list.

If you leave this field empty, the Flushing principle setting for the item is used.

NoteNote

Automatic consumption can be used only if the Automatic BOM consumption field in the Production parameters form has been set.

Line type

Select the type of line:

  • Item

  • Phantom

  • Pegged supply

  • Vendor

The line is handled differently, depending on the value that you select.

Calculation

A selected check box indicates that the BOM line is used in BOM calculations. BOM calculations determine the cost price and sales price for the Bill of Materials, based on profit settings. BOM calculations provide the estimated BOM prices on all BOM levels. Therefore, the contribution of a single item or operation to the price on the BOM level can be determined. The contribution of all items and operations on a specific level can also be determined.

The calculations also provide an overview of summarized costs for cost groups. This overview shows the contribution of a cost group on a particular BOM level.

Sub-BOM

For sub-BOM lines only, select an alternative BOM version that is used when sub-BOM versions are changed for a finished item. If this field is empty, the active BOM version is used.

Subroute

For sub-BOM lines only, select the route number that is used for the selected sub-BOM. If this field is empty, the active route is used.

Product model number

The unique identifier that is assigned to the product model.

From date

Enter the first date that the BOM line is valid.

To date

Enter the last date that the BOM line is valid.

Rounding-up

Select the method that is used to round up quantities or consumption. Rounding up is used if the raw materials are consumed in specific quantities.

The options are as follows:

  • No – Quantities are not rounded up.

  • Quantity – Quantities must be rounded up to a multiple of the given quantity.

    For example, if whole numbers are required, specify 1.00 in the Multiples field. Numbers are now always rounded up to quantities that are divisible by 1.00.

  • Measurement – If a raw material has specific dimensions, quantities are rounded up based on measurement.

    Example

    Steel rods often come in a fixed length, such as 5 feet. From a length of 5 feet, two 2-foot pieces are required. Therefore, there is always a constant scrap value of 1 foot for every 5 feet of rod. In this case, the value in the Multiples field is set to 5.

    Rounding up

    1. Determine the quantity, based on the measurement dimensions. In the example, the quantity is 2.

    2. Determine the number of times that the quantity for the measurement can be divided into multiples. In the example, 5/2 = 2.5. The quantity is rounded down to 0 (zero) decimal places, so that 2.5 = 2. Therefore, according to this formula, a 5-foot steel rod can be cut into two 2-foot pieces.

    3. Calculate consumption, because the number of multiples that you require to produce a specific quantity is known. In the example, a 5-foot rod produces two 2-foot pieces of rod. If the production quantity for the finished item is 10 units, 10/2 = 5. Therefore, five multiples are used. Because each multiple is 5 feet, consumption is calculated as 5 multiples x 5 feet = 25 feet. If quantities are not rounded up based on measurement, the consumption is calculated as 10 units x 2-foot pieces = 20 feet total. However, when quantities are rounded up based on measurement, the system calculates that there are 5 feet of scrap for a production of 10 units.

  • Consumption – Quantities are rounded up based on consumption.

    When you round up based on consumption, the estimated consumption is rounded up to a multiple of the number of units that the raw material comes in. Use this method when a raw material can only be used in specific quantities, and the rest of the raw material is considered scrap.

    Example

    Paint is stored in inventory in 25-quart cans. When paint is taken from inventory, it is taken in increments of 25-quart cans. In this case, Consumption is selected as the rounding up method, and the Multiples field is set to 25.

    The production quantity for the finished item is 20 units, and 2 quarts of paint are used for each unit. Consumption is calculated as 20 units x 2 quarts = 40 quarts. When this quantity is rounded up to a multiple of 25, 50 quarts of paint are required. When quantities are rounded up based on consumption, the system calculates 10 quarts of excess consumption, or scrap.

Multiples

Enter the number of multiples that are required to produce a specific quantity of the item. This field is used when you round up.

Vendor account

For items that have a line type of Vendor, select the vendor account. If this field is empty, information about the vendor account is retrieved from the resource or resource group for the operation.

Height

Enter the conversion factor for the height dimension. This conversion factor is used in the formula that is selected for consumption calculations on the General tab to determine the space requirements for items.

Width

Enter the conversion factor for the width dimension. This conversion factor is used in the formula that is selected for consumption calculations on the General tab to determine the space requirements for items.

Depth

Enter the conversion factor for the depth dimension. This conversion factor is used in the formula that is selected for consumption calculations on the General tab to determine the space requirements for items.

Density

The conversion factor for the density dimension. This conversion factor is used in the formula that is selected for consumption calculations on the General tab to determine the space requirements for items.

Constant

The conversion factor for the sales quantity. This conversion factor is used in the formula that is selected for consumption calculations on the General tab to determine the space requirements for items.
