On this tab the following fields can be viewed:


hmtoggle_plus1Parent Part Number

This is the part number of the item for which the cost generation inquiry or update is to be performed.


The list is populated with part numbers from the Product Structure table where the part exists as a "parent part number", and the part has a source code of manufactured (M), phantom (N), interplant (I) or sub-contract (S) on its Part Master record.


The parent part number field will also populate with purchased parts where the part master field "Include Purchased Part Cost Roll Up" = Yes.


To aid the user in the selection of the part, the part's description and source are also displayed in the list.


A part therefore needs to have a predefined product structure and needs to have a source other than purchased or customer furnished to be selectable from the list.


The number of characters to be entered before the list is shown is governed by the value of "populate length" (mandatory).

hmtoggle_plus1Perform Project Specific Cost Generation

This frame is used to indicate if you want to run the cost generation for a specific project's product structure. Select the applicable scenario, project and if serial number affectivity applies select a logical serial number. Run the cost generation as usually from the second tab.  


In this mode "Perform Project Specific Cost Generation" the system will also perform the following check.

When exploding the product structure and doing the cost roll up and a part is found where the source is manufactured and the part exists in project part requirements as purchased for the specified project then the cost will be the material price from part price scenario where the budget scenario code is equal to the scenario code selected (Refer the frame "Material Cost" and "Part Price Scenario") and the financial year is equal to the financial year selected if no valid data is found a costgen error will be recorded which can be viewed on the Costgen Errors tab.


If costed successful on the Costgen Output tab the source will be shown as P (Purchased) and the price source as Scenario.

hmtoggle_plus1Product Structure Effectivity Date

It is a date that is selected from a calendar that specifies the effectivity date of the Product Structure to be applied for the specific cost generation inquiry or update.  It defaults to today's date.


The effectivity date governs the result of the product structure explosion.  It thus provides the option to apply the product structure definition as valid on a past date, as valid on the present date or as valid on a future date. This is done by reading the effectivity dates and effectivity codes in the product structure in relation to the specified date.


The selected date is also applied to determine the valid costed Part Operations for the calculation of labor and overhead cost.


In update mode it is recommended that the selected effectivity date fall within the same financial year as selected for the field For Financial Year.
