Depends on what the goals are, meaning, will inventory need to be stored onsite / inventoried for a period of time? Are there concerns with the current process that you’re trying to address? Are the parts lot or serial tracked?I have personally found that a Purchase order issued to the customer at 0 cost for inventory worked best for similar situations. This informed the customer of when we needed to have the parts in hand to complete the work on time and also sped up the receiving process because the receiving team was able to receive, stock, and issue the part as normal. One question I have is how will receiving department know what the item is if it shows up on the dock without paperwork since there is no Purchase Order or Sales Order to receive the item against? Hope these questions help! -Andre
MRP should be suggesting sub-assembly production orders at the same time (see example below). Alternatively, once you create the top level production order, you could utilize the “Generate Orders For Sub Assembly” which will create all production order subassemblies for that order regardless if there are enough of the subassembly items on hand. MRP Display - Materials and Subassemblies Needed For 500 AMKEURIG DemandSee that AMKERUIG is needing to be produced to satisfy Sales Order Demand SO0006556 (would work for any Demand), MRP recommends creating a production order for AMKEURIG, which generates a planned production order (PL, AM000040), which in turn generates other demand. From here you can select all the recommendations you wish to act on and generate all levels of production orders. If I had enough of any of the material requirements on hand, MRP would not recommend creating a production order for that item since I have enough supply to meet demand.
Zoey, A phantom is a material type option on BOM materials. Once a production order is created for an item that has a BOM with a phantom material type, the phantom material requirement disappears. The phantom’s own BOM materials are then inserted into the production order on the operation where the phantom resided. In addition, you can specify if only the phantom BOM material is inserted into the production order, or if its routings should be included before or after the operation where the phantom material resides.Materials and operations inserted into a production order behave the same as other materials and operations on a production order. You can set the items and operations to backflush, or clear the backflush checkbox and have employees issue material and or record labor.Hope this helps,-Andre
Zoey, Look at the cost rate of the Overhead ID “Payroll” if the cost rate is $0.30 then that would result in both the $4.50 and the $0.08 result. See below.Overhead variable by labor cost = Labor Cost x Overhead Cost Rate per $ x Overhead FactorFirst Scenario $4.50 = $15 x $0.30 x 1.00 Second Scenario $.08 = $0.25 x $0.30 x 1.00 Hope this helps!-Andre
@xkylewrightx, the fields that are displayed in the BOM Cost Summary popup are part of the Data Access Class (DAC) AMBomCost and can be accessed via generic inquiry. A quick way to find out information about a field is to use the Element Inspector. This will let you view the following reference information for any visual element on a form:Control type Data access class (if applied) Data field (if applied) Data view (if applied) Business logic controller Action name (if applied)You can activate the Element Inspector from the Customization Menu or by pressing Control-Alt which is useful for pop-up/smart panel screens.Hopefully this information helps! Please feel free to reach out with any more questions!
