Field Definitions: IN Production Entry Form

The following is a list of field descriptions for the IN Production Entry form. Many of the descriptions include links to other topics that provide additional information about or related to the topic.

Seq#

Enter NEW to create a new entry or enter the batch sequence number of an existing entry you wish to display.

Date

Enter the production date for the finished good. Initially defaults to the current date.

Location

Enter the finished good’s production location (from IN Locations).

Material

Enter the material (finished good) being produced. This must be an active material stocked at the production location (IN Location Materials) and must be a finished good set up with a Bill of Materials.

Amounts: Units

Enter the number of units produced (expressed in the finished good’s unit of measure). This may be a positive or negative amount, but cannot be 0.00.

Note: Negative amounts will typically be used when making adjusting entries (e.g. backing out a production entry made in error).

Amounts: Unit Cost

Defaults a unit cost based on the Cost Method for the location (IN Locations) or category (IN Location Category Override).

The Unit Cost may be overridden only if the Allow Unit Cost Overrides check box is selected in IN Company Parameters. Override values must be equal to or greater than 0.00. The amount entered here will be used to update the Inventory value of the finished good.

Note: If Cost Method is Std Unit Cost, and the amount entered here is not equal to the Std Unit Cost, the difference will be posted to the appropriate Cost Variance account (defined in IN Locations or IN Location Category Override).

ECM

Indicates what quantity the unit cost represents. This can only be overridden if the Allow Unit Cost Overrides option is checked (IN Company Parameters).

  • E – Per Each

  • C – Per Hundred

  • M – Per Thousand

Memo

Use this field to enter a description of the production transaction, up to 30 characters.

Comp Location

This is the Location from which the component material is pulled. For initialized components, default will be either the production location (if using a standard Bill of Materials) or the location specified for the component material if an override Bill of Materials is used. This value cannot be overridden.

If adding a new component, enter the component’s source location. This must be an active location (IN Locations), but does not need to be the same as the production location, nor does it need to be within the same location group as the production location.

Material

Component material required for the production of the finished good. For initialized components, defaults from the Bill of Materials.

If adding a new component, enter a valid material stocked at the source location specified in previous field. Cannot be the same as the finished good, and must be unique within this batch entry.

Material’s description and standard unit of measure are displayed to the right of this field.

UM

This field displays the unit of measure for the component material (set in HQ Materials). This value cannot be overridden.

Units

The number of units of this component material needed to produce the specified quantity of the finished good.

For initialized components, defaults an amount based on the units specified in the Bill of Materials times the quantity being produced. If add a new component, the quantity entered must be greater than 0.00.

Note: If the quantity entered here causes the component’s on-hand quantity to fall below zero, and the 'Display Warning if Qty On Hand is Negative' option is checked (IN Company Parameters), a warning message will be displayed indicating that the transaction will result in a negative “on hand” quantity. Posting will still be allowed.

Unit Cost

Defaults a unit cost based on the Cost Method for the location (IN Locations) or category (IN Location Category Override).

The Unit Cost may only be overridden if the Allow Unit Cost Overrides option is checked (IN Company Parameters). Override value must be equal to or greater than 0.00.

ECM

Indicates what quantity the unit cost represents. This can only be overridden if the Allow Unit Cost Overrides option is checked (IN Company Parameters).

  • E – Per Each

  • C – Per Hundred

  • M – Per Thousand

Unit Price

Used only when the component’s source location differs from the production location and the Usage Option (IN Company Parameters) is ‘Sale’.

Enter the unit price for this component material. Must be equal to or greater than 0.00. Initially defaults a unit price based on the MS pricing hierarchy as follows:

  • Quote – If an active quote exists for the production IN location that includes component materials from another location, the system uses the quote to determine pricing. If no pricing exists on the quote for the materials, it will use the quote's price template.

  • Pricing Templates – If an override price template is specified on the quote, it will use that price template first. If no price template is specified on the quote, the price template assigned to the production location (in IN Locations), will be used.

  • IN Location Materials (INMT) – If no pricing is found on a quote or price template, the system uses the cost/price defined for the production location (based on the Pricing Option for inventory sales defined in IN Company Parameters), and applies any markup or discount rate defined for the materials in IN Location Materials).

This amount will be used to calculate the revenue generated from the ‘sale’ of this component to the production location. Defaults based on the Pricing Option for Inventory Sales (IN Company Parameters) and the markup/discount rate specified for the location in IN Location Materials.

Price ECM

Indicates what quantity the unit price represents.

  • E – Per Each

  • C – Per Hundred

  • M – Per Thousand
