The By-product Definition function is used to  set-up expected production 'By-product' definitions. By-products are linked to an original planned production part/product. The set-up of these definitions will be the rules applied by part/product which will define what percentages of the planned product production yield, labour and material costs will be journalised to the cost of the By-Product against the resulting income statements. This will reduce the cost of the order line part by the amount of material yielded. When a production order is created for a product that yields the by products, records for the by products are inserted in the Order_Line_By_Product table and visible on the By Products tab on the Order Master function.  If the by products are serialized or lot controlled, serial and lot number linking will happen in the same way as for the original product.

 

On this tab the following fields can be viewed:

 

hmtoggle_plus1By-Product Yield%

The percentage of the expected yield of by-product from the planned production of the original planned part as defined in the 'Original Planned Part Number' field.

 

By Products will cause the order to yield proportionately less of the original order line part. To compensate the By-Product percentage yield will be added to the order quantity to ensure that the order still yields the original required quantity.

hmtoggle_plus1By-Product Part Number Description

The description of the by-product part number as set-up in the Part Master function.

hmtoggle_plus1By-Product Part Number

The by-product part number is the part number to be linked to the original planned production part as defined in the original planned part number field. The by-product will have the same part structure as the original planned part as set-up in the Part Master and Product Structure functions. It can have the same part description as the original planned production part but must be a different part number.
