Use this form to view and analyze the calculated costs for a manufactured item by cost group. Calculated costs can be viewed in cost groups based on the following criteria:

  • Format – Costing sheet or cost rollup

  • Level – Single, multiple, or total BOM level

  • Quantity basis – Per unit, per lot size, or per a user-specified quantity

Information is only displayed for item cost records that are in a costing version for standard costs.

A manufacturing company wants to analyze the cost contributions of different types of material, labor, and overhead to the standard costs of their manufactured items. The company assigns different cost groups to different cost types, for example:

  • Types of purchased items, such as electrical and fabricated parts

  • Types of cost categories that were assigned to operations resources, such as different types of labor skills or machines

  • Manufacturing overhead calculation formulas, such as overhead rates for operations resources

The analysis uses the information that appears in Cost rollup by cost group form.
