About the Fields

 

In the Line Type field...

  • Select Standard Line or Memo from the dropdown. Using the Memo selection enables the Cmts/Msg Line field for entry of a message regarding the material.

In the Sub field...

Display only. An asterisk indicates this item is a subassembly or a manufactured component.

 

In the Inventory field...

  • Enter a valid inventory item number.

  • Click Find field records to display all valid inventory item numbers.

  • Click Display master records to open the master record for the code entered

In the Description field...

Display only. Displays the description for the inventory item number entered.

 

In the Cmts/Msg Line field...

Available for Memo Line Types only.

 

In the OP Ref  field...

  • Select an operations code from the dropdown list. The dropdown list is populated with operations previously entered in the Operations Detail grid for the bill.

In the Divisor field...

The number by which the quantity required for this item will be divided, in order to arrive at the adjusted net quantity to be used for this bill. A divisor may be used when unit of measure conversions are required. For instance, 36 will convert a material stocked in yards to be used in inches.

  • Enter a divisor number.

  • Press [Tab] key to accept the default value of 1.00.

In the Qty Req field...

  • Enter the quantity of this item required for the bill.

In the Alt Factor field...

The number by which the quantity required for this item will be multiplied, in order to arrive at the adjusted net quantity to be used for this bill. An Alt Factor may be used when unit of measure conversions are required. For instance, 12 will convert a material stocked in inches to be used in feet.

  • Enter an alt factor number.

  • Press [Tab] key to accept the default number of 1.00.

In the Scrap Factor % field...

  • Enter the scrap material percentage.

  • Press [Tab] key to accept the default number of 0.00.

Entering a scrap factor will increase the net quantity needed to compensate for the anticipated scrap. For instance, if a 3’x7’ piece is cut from a 4’x8’ piece of plywood, a scrap factor of 35.37% would be entered. This factor is figured by dividing the sq. feet required by the sq. feet of the original piece and then converting it to a percentage.

 

21 sq. ft ÷ 32 sq. ft = .6563 or 65.63% used

100 - 65.63 = 35.37% scrapped

-or-

32 sq. ft. - 21 sq. ft. = 11 sq. ft. scrapped

11 sq. ft. ÷ 32 sq. = .3537 or 35.37%

 

In the Unit of Measure field...

  • Enter the two-character engineering unit of measure for this item.

  • Press [Tab] key to accept the unit of measure from the Inventory Master File.

In the Net Required field...

Display only. Shows the actual net quantity of material needed to create the finished product.

The formula for determining the net quantity is as follows:

 

Qty Req x Alt Factor ÷ (Divisor x ( 100 - scrap factor ) ÷ Yield %) = Net Qty

 

In the Unit Cost field...
