Parameters to Set

Program ID/Panel Field The field indicates …
(PMS395/E) Fixed/variable

… if the costing total amount is considered fixed or variable.

The valid alternatives are:

0 = Fixed

1 = Variable.

(PMS395/E) Costing component

… the costing component’s ID.

The valid From/To ranges are:

A01 – A03 = Material cost (direct material)

A04 – A05 = Material overhead

B01 – B14 = Operation cost (excluding subcontracting and tools)

C01 – C02 = Tool costs for operations

D01 – D01 = Subcontract costs for operations

D02 – D02 = Subcontract overhead for operations

E01 – E10 = Product costs (common costs).

(PMS390/E) Years to save W/C statistics (by week)

… the number of years, in addition to the current year, weekly statistics are saved per work center.

The historical statistics are deleted when (PMS300) or (MCS300) is run.

Example: If statistics should be saved for two years, a record for any week in 1998 will be kept until the last week in 2000. During the first statistics run in 2001, all statistics for 1998 will be deleted.

PMS390/E Years to save order statistics

… the number of years detailed statistics are saved.

The statistics are deleted when (PMS300) or (MCS300) is run.

Example: If detailed statistics must be saved for two years, the statistics of an order finished in 1998 will be kept until the end of 2000. During the first statistics run in 2001, all statistics for 1998 will be deleted.

(PMS390/E) Create average statistics

… whether to create average statistics.

Average statistics are calculated when detailed statistics are created.

(PMS390/E) Cost total

… the total for an optional number of costing components. When production statistics are created, the included components’ values are totaled and displayed in the field.

Costing totals 1 and 2 refer to costs related to material for the order. The costing total is expressed in local currency for each price quantity.

(PMS390/E) Cost total 1 – 6

… the total for an optional number of costing components. When production statistics are created, the included components’ values are totaled and displayed in the field.

Costing totals 1 and 2 refer to costs related to material for the order. The costing total is expressed in local currency for each price quantity.

Costing totals 3 to 6 refer to costs related to operations for the order. The costing total is expressed in local currency for each price quantity.

(PMS390/E) Quantity U/M in work center statistics

… the unit of measure (U/M). The selected U/M is used to display and calculate work center statistics.

The valid alternatives are:

0 = Item's basic U/M

1 = Initial weight per operation

2 = Conversion factor per work center entered in (PDS045).

If 0 is selected, the number of maintained objects per order will be displayed.

If 1 is selected, the weight is displayed. This could be of importance when you need to keep track of weight changes in maintained objects.

Alternative 2 is not used for maintenance.

(PMS390/E) Calculation method – operation figures

… how the operation figures should be calculated.

The valid alternatives are:

1 = Real values are used. If there is no reporting, the order costing value is zero.

2 = Product costing is used if the operation is not reported.

(PMS390/E) Costing type – costed MO … the costing type used when costing a manufacturing order.
(PMS390/E) Costing type – actual cost MO … the costing type used for the actual costing of a manufacturing order.
