Use this form to update cost allocations for co-products and by-products produced in a batch order, for a quantity different from the original production quantity. You can update costing information and assign cost allocation percentages at any time before the batch order is completed. You can update the costing information to reflect the production changes until the batch order status is Ended.

If there are no changes to the pre-determined items originally planned for production, then no costing updates are needed. Batch order costing then will use the pre-defined cost allocations. These allocations will be reflected in this form.

  2. Double-click the consolidated order to display the Consolidated batch orders form.

  3. Select the consolidated order to view cost allocation information.

  4. In the Bulk Orders or Packed Orders pane, select the bulk order or packed order to work with.

Field

Description

Cost allocated

The type of cost allocation for the co-product. The types are described as follows:

  • None ─ No cost allocation is applicable for the co-product. For a by-product, this field is always None, because cost allocation does not apply to by-products.

  • Manual ─ Enter the cost allocation percentage manually in the corresponding Cost allocation percent field.

  • TCA ─ Total cost allocation percentages are estimated automatically, or using the suggested cost price calculated in the Estimate cost form. For more information, see About the methodology for total cost allocation.

Item number

The identification for the co-product or by-product.

Name

The name of the item.

Batch number

The identification for the batch order.

CW quantity

The scheduled quantity in catch weight units.

CW unit

The catch weight unit of measure.

Quantity

The scheduled production quantity.

Production type

The type of production item. The values are Co-product, By-product, Planning item, BOM item, Formula item, and None.

Item number

The identification for the item.

Product name

The name of the product.

CW good quantity

The number of good items in catch weight units to be reported as finished for the batch order.

Good quantity

The number of good items to be reported as finished for the batch order.

Unit

The unit in which the Good quantity field is expressed.

Cost allocation

Change or view the type of cost allocation that will be used for each item. The options are as follows:

  • None ─ No cost allocation is applicable for the co-product. For a by-product, always select None. Cost allocation is not used for by-products.

  • Manual ─ Enter the cost allocation percentage manually in the corresponding Cost allocation percent field.

  • TCA ─ If the Total Cost Allocation method is selected for a co-product, cost allocation percentages will be estimated automatically. You can also use the Estimate cost form to check the suggested cost allocation. For more information, see About the methodology for total cost allocation.

Cost allocation percent

Enter the cost allocation percentage if the Cost allocation type is Manual. You must enter a positive percentage before you end the batch.

For a by-product, you can also calculate cost using a fixed currency amount instead of a percentage. To use a currency amount, you must select Burden and type a positive currency amount in the By-product burden amount field. You cannot enter a negative amount

Burden

The burden type for the by-product. The burden types are as follows:

  • None ─ No burden is applicable for the by-product. For a co-product, this field is always None, again burden does not apply to co-products.

  • Percent─ The cost for disposing of the by-product is a percentage, not an amount, of the total production cost.

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

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

By-product burden amount

If you selected Burden, enter the amount that will be added as burden when calculating the cost of disposing of this by-product. You must enter a positive value. Enter the currency amount that will be added as burden when allocating cost for this by-product item. You must enter a positive amount before you end the batch.

NoteNote

If you use a currency amount to allocate cost, you must first select Burden.

CW estimated

The number of estimated items in catch weight units.

Estimated qty

The number of estimated items.

CW remaining

The number of items in catch weight units that remain to be produced.

Remaining quantity

The number of items that remains to be produced.

CW started

The number of items in catch weight units that have been started.

Started qty

The number of items that been started.
