Synch costs on BOM when not using standard cost

If a customer is not using standard cost, when a component is added to a bill of material, the cost is 0 unless one is manually entered, and after the component item is received into inventory and the cost is established, the cost on the bill of material is not updated. 

Users will base price estimates on the bill of material and when the costs are not current on the bill, there is no way to look at a bill of material and view the current cost of the item.  They must look at each component item and retrieve the cost, or create a bogus production order to capture current cost.

This would increase usability and customer satisfaction.

Hello there!

I assume this is more like a product suggestion, not a question.

You are correct.  I was on the ideas page and created the post, but it put it here.  I must have used the wrong Create Topic link.

The proper kind of topic should be selected during the submission.

Unfortunately, our Community do not support converting question to ideas yet, so you will need to create Idea correctly one more time.

Thank you!

Run the Cost Cost process with the option checked to Update Material Costs (defaulted).  It will pull the current cost from the item warehouse details.
