Use this form to review the estimated cost allocation percentage for a co-product with a cost allocation method of TCA. This feature lets you view the expected cost allocation. This can then be compared with the actual cost allocation after the production order is ended. You can also view the cost price for each co-product in the formula.

NoteNote

To use the TCA (Total Cost Allocation) method with a co-product, the Total cost allocation check box for the related formula version in the Formula form must be selected.

  1. Click Inventory and warehouse management > Common > Formula.

  2. Select the formula item and then click Co-products. The Co-products form is displayed.

  3. Click Estimate cost.

(Co product)

CW unit

The catch weight unit of measure for the co-product.

Quantity

The number of units expected to be produced of the co-product. For a catch weight item, the displayed value is based on the conversion of the catch weight unit to the inventory unit. You cannot change this value.

(Co-product)

Unit

The unit in which the Quantity of the co-product is expressed.

Per series

The number of units of finished product that are expected to be produced.

(Co-product)

Cost price

(Co-product)

Cost allocation percent

The cost allocation percent that is entered manually in the Co-products form. This is usually not needed if cost prices for the co-products are entered and the calculation method is set to TCA. However, if the calculation method is set to a different value, then the cost allocation percent is used to allocate costs among different co-products.

Estimate cost percent

The estimated cost allocation percent for each co-product that was calculated after you clicked the Cost percentages button. The calculation takes the weighted average of the costs and quantity of all co-products to be produced and assigns a factor to each co-product. The total production is then allocated to each co-product based on this factor.
