  • 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 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 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.
