Determining the Best Material Price
This flowchart depicts the process to determine the best material price for Work Order materials. This calculation will determine the best material price based on the type of item (stock or non-stock), whether the work order is setup for flat rate or Time & Material pricing, whether the Inventory Control module is present, and which screen the Operator is currently using.
Method 1 - Non-Stock Material Pricing
Method 2 - Inventory Stock Item Pricing
The software will search for the lowest price from the material level stored in the Work Order header, quantity discount codes for the specified item, customer special pricing codes for the specified item and Customer's job, and discount code for the specified item. The software does not combine discount pricing, but rather looks for the lowest price among these sources to use for Unit price.
Method 3 - Work Order Item Pricing
When the Inventory Control module is not present, the Unit price will default from the stored price in the Work Order material item table.
