Infor LX & BPCS Finance Tip: Items without costs, CST101D

George Moroses 0 254 Article rating: 5.0

This program generates an uncosted items listing for the specified facility and cost set. You can use this report as an exception listing to identify those items that are currently maintained at zero cost or new items that require entry prior to cost rollup in Cost Set Rollup, CST500.

If a facility-specific component cost does not exist for a parent being rolled up, zero cost is rolled up for the component. When a new parent item is being rolled up for the first time, the audit report for Cost Rollup, CST500, displays a warning wherever a component cost is zero. Rolling up the parent cost again does not display a message for zero component costs.

If your company is manufacturing a product, you’re more than likely creating manufacturing variances. These variances tell managers where the company is not performing to the standards that were created and agreed to by those responsible in the Engineering, Finance, or Production Departments. There is almost a 100% chance you are creating either favorable or unfavorable manufacturing variances and, quite frankly, none of the variances will ever be favorable because the company is either over-costing or under-costing the production parts.

The data is all there within your ERP system… or at least it should be… provided that you are not tracking production information outside of your ERP system in a spreadsheet.

Analyzing your production orders can help you track down:

What is manual tax compliance costing your business?

Crossroads RMC 0 410 Article rating: 5.0

Why automate tax compliance?
The better question is: Why burden your business with something so complex and tedious when it can be solved with software in the cloud?

Decrease the high cost and drain on your business

Customer Defined fields are fields that can be added to tables, screens, reports, and BODs. Validation and calculation logic can be defined around those fields. This gives you great added capability and flexibility… however, are you aware of the limitations of using CDFs?

  • You cannot define customer-defined fields for tables within Tools (the tl and tt packages).
  • External integrations.....
