Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Click Production control > Common > Production orders > All production orders. Select a production order for a formula or planning item. On the Action Pane, on the View tab, in the Related information group, click Price calculation. On the Price calculation form, click Co-products.

Use this form to view the calculated costs for material and time consumption for batch orders that contain specific co-product items. By using this form you can compare estimated and realized costs.

For co-products, their overall costs are a percentage of the batch order's total costs. This percentage is based on their cost allocation percentage for the co-product line.

Estimated costs are based on existing setup data for the item or operation. Realized costs are based on actual production statistics and feedback. When you post a production journal, such as a picking list, route card, or job card, the Realized consumption and Realized cost amount fields are automatically updated with the posted information.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.

Tab

Description

Overview

View a list of co-product items and their batch orders. You can select a co-product and view the price calculation details in the lower pane of the form.

Overview estimation

View estimated consumption, which includes total cost price and sales price per unit.

Overview costing

View general costing information, which includes estimated and realized consumption and cost amount.

General

View general identification, administration, and price summaries that are related to the production calculation.

Calculation

View estimated and cost-account consumption and related amounts for the batch order line.

Costing sheet

View estimated and cost-account consumption and related amounts for the batch order line.

Button

Description

Variance

Monitor standard cost price variances for the selected co-product.

NoteNote

This button is enabled if the co-product is set up for standard cost and the batch order has the status Completed.

Field

Description

Item number

The identification of the co-product.

Batch order

The identification of the batch order.

Type

The type of calculation. An icon appears in the previous Type field to graphically depict the type of calculation. The calculation types include the following:

  • Production

  • Item

  • BOM

  • Service

  • Setup

  • Process

  • Quantity

Level

The level at which the co-product figures in the calculation.

Item/Resource

The identification of the item and resource.

Consumption per unit

The consumption price per unit.

Unit

The unit of measure for the co-product.

Total cost per unit

The total cost price for each unit.

Total sales per unit

The total sales price for each unit.

Estimated consumption

The material and time consumption that is calculated when you update the batch order to the estimation stage. The calculation for expected material consumption is based on the co-product item. The calculation for expected time consumption is based on the operation.

Realized consumption

The material and time consumption that is registered against the batch order. The material consumption for the co-product item is registered automatically when you post the picking list journal. Time consumption for the operation is registered automatically when you post the route card or job card journals. This field is not updated for a top level batch order line until the production status is updated to end. When inventory transactions are financially updated for the batch order, the field is updated with the realized consumption quantity.

Estimated cost amount

The calculated estimated cost, which is based on the estimated consumption and the cost price. The cost price that is used in the calculation is from the Released product details form. The cost price for the job is from the cost categories that are set up for the operation.

Realized cost amount

The calculated realized cost, which is based on the realized consumption and the cost price. The co-product cost price of the item is from the reference transaction, if it is marked. Otherwise, it is from the on-hand record for the item. The cost price for the job is from the Route card or Job card journal.

Date

The date of the calculation.

Reference number

The number of the sales order, purchase order, production, or production line based on the Reference type.

Reference production

The batch order from which the co-product was generated.

Reference type

The reference type that indicates the relation to other modules. The types are as follows: Sales, Purchase, Production, and Production line.

Reference table ID

The identification of the reference table.

Line number

The line number of the associated reference.

Production

If this check box is selected, the selected item is a production receipt.

Oper. No.

The number of the operation that is used to determine the sequence in routes.

BOM consumption

If this check box is selected, the line is consumption of the bill of materials (BOM).

Cost group

The identification of the cost group.

Operation

The identification of the operation.

Dimensions

The inventory dimensions that are selected for the item.

Vendor account

The identification of the vendor if trade agreements were used to determine the cost of a component.

Quantity (Estimated consumption)

The estimated consumption quantity.

Consumption (Estimated consumption)

The material and time consumption that is calculated when you update the batch order to the estimation stage. The calculation for expected material consumption is based on the co-product item. The calculation for expected time consumption is based on the operation.

Variable

The estimated consumption that is quantity-dependent, in the number of inventory units for the line.

Constant

The estimated consumption that is quantity-dependent, in the number of inventory units for the line.

Consumption per unit

The consumption price per unit.

Cost amount (Estimated amount)

The estimated cost amount that is quantity-dependent, in the number of inventory units for the line.

Cost amount charges

The cost miscellaneous charges that are quantity-independent for the line.

Cost price total

The cost price of the item per unit before consumption.

Total cost per unit

The total cost of the item per unit before consumption.

Sales amount

The estimated sales amount that is quantity-dependent in the number of inventory units for the line.

Sales amount charges

The estimated sales amount miscellaneous charges that are quantity-independent for the line.

Sales price

The total sales price for the item based on consumption.

Total sales price per unit

The sale price per unit for the item before consumption.

Quantity (Cost account consumption)

The cost-accounted quantity that is reported as finished.

Consumption (Cost account consumption)

The cost-accounted consumption.

Cost amount) (Cost accounted amount)

The realized cost that is cost-accounted.

Adjustment

The adjustment of the cost amount.

Mode

Select whether the coding sheet should display the estimated or actual costs for the batch order. The values are as follows:

  • Estimation – The estimated costs for the batch order.

  • Costing– The actual costs for the batch order.

Level

Select one of the following levels to display costing sheet information.

  • Single – The information that includes a breakdown of the single-level product structure.

  • Multi – The information that includes a breakdown of the multiple levels in the product structure.

  • Total – The complete information, without a breakdown for levels in the product structure.

Code

The costing sheet code.

Description

The description of the cost sheet code.

Variable cost

The variable costs for the costing sheet code. These costs are based on the behavior that is defined in the cost group that is assigned to the costing sheet code.

Fixed cost

The fixed costs for the costing sheet code. These costs are independent of the quantity that is produced.

Total
