Button

Description

Functions

Open the Co-product cost allocation form to update costing information for a co-product or by-product.

Inventory

Inquiries

Make inquiries about various related records. For example, you can select Net requirements to view information about the current requirements that were calculated for the co-product or by-product item.

Field

Description

Production type

View or select the production type for the item. The options are Co-Product and By-Product.

Item number

View or select the item number that identifies the co-product or by-product.

CW quantity

View or enter the co-product or by-product quantity in catch weight units.

CW unit

View or select the catch weight unit of measure for the co-product or by-product.

Quantity

View or enter the number of units of the item. 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.

Unit

View or select the unit of measure in which the Quantity field is stated.

Burden

View or select the type of burden for the by-product item.

NoteNote

The Percent type is the simplest level of control for managing burden. The Per series type is an intermediate level of control. The Per quantity type is the most advanced level of control.

The burden types are as follows:

  • None ─ Always select this option for a co-product.

  • Percent ─ Select this option if the cost of disposing the by-product is a percentage, not an amount, of the total production cost.

  • Per series ─ Select this option if the burden amount is applied to the cost of the batch order, regardless of the quantity that is reported as finished. The burden amount is scaled based on the ratio of the batch order quantity and the per series for the by-product on the formula.

  • Per quantity ─ Select this option if the burden amount is applied to the cost of the batch based on the quantity that is reported as finished. The burden amount is scaled up or down depending on the ratio of the quantity of by-product in the batch order that is reported as finished and the per series for the by-product on the formula.

Product name

The name of the product.

Per series

View or enter the number of co-product or by-product units that are required to produce the end item formula unit. The number of units is based on the formula size and version.

Quality order status

If there is a quality order that is associated with this item, the status of the order.

Batch order

The identification of the batch order that includes the formula line.

Item number

The identification of the item.

Recurrent

Select this check box if the co-product is used as a raw material in this batch order.

Recurring position

If this check box is selected, the formula line is a recurring co-product. A recurring co-product is one that is produced and consumed in the same formula. It is mandatory for a recurring co-product to also be a raw material in the same formula.

Recovery percentage

The recovery percentage factor of the recurring co-product. Recovery percentage is used to calculate the return on the given process.

Per series

The formula size of the formula version. This is the default value. You can change this value to specify the quantity of the referenced formula product that is produced.

Remaining quantity

The quantity in the formula unit that is not yet released.

Rounding up

Define the type of rounding-up to use. This is useful if the raw materials are consumed in specific quantities.

Options include the following:

  • No ─ Rounding-up is not used.

  • Quantity ─ Quantity must be a multiple of the given quantity. For example, when whole numbers are required, enter 1.00 in the Multiples field. Numbers are always rounded to quantities divisible by 1.00.

  • Consumption ─ The estimated consumption is rounded up so that it is divisible by the number of units that the raw material comes in. Use this method when consumption of a raw material can only be used in certain quantities, and the rest of the raw material is considered scrap.

Example

Paint is stored in inventory in 25-quart cans. When it is taken from inventory, it is taken in 25-quart can increments. In this case, rounding-up according to consumption is selected, and multiples are set to 25.

The production quantity for the finished item is 20 units, and 2 quarts of paint must be used for each unit. Consumption is calculated as 20 units x 2 quarts = 40 quarts. When rounded up to a multiple of 25, 50 quarts of paint are required. When rounding up according to consumption, excess consumption, or scrap, of 10 quarts is automatically calculated.

Multiples

The multiple numbers in which the item is consumed. Used together with rounding-up.

For more information, see the description for the Rounding-up field.
