General Price Handling
The Unit Cost (CC) field in the Document BOM/Construction BOM for long lead time items is populated based on:
- the Unit Cost, Direct Unit Cost, or Standard Cost from the item, as determined by the Cost from (line) field in the Configure to Order Setup page, if no vendor or valid purchase prices exist.
- purchase prices from the item.
- cost of the Variable for Unit Cost in the item configuration.
- manual entry or by running the Purch. G/L Acc./Item function, which will update the value with changes when the purchase order is released.
Costs in the Document BOM generally come from the item as indicated but can be changed due to sales-based estimates. These costs are then validated with vendors during the purchase process in the Construction Order. In either case, it may be necessary to ensure the costs in some lines are not changed manually, or with the Update Unit Cost and Price function or Purch. G/L Acc./Item function. This is handled with the Freeze Unit Cost (CC) field in the Document BOM or Construction Order line.
Prevent Cost Changes from Update Unit Cost and Price function
The Update Unit Cost and Price function updates the costs with the actual Unit Costs from the item. To prevent the costs from being overwritten by running this function, select the Freeze Unit Cost (CC) check box in the Document BOM or Construction Order line.
If the Freeze Unit Cost (CC) check box is selected and the Create Prod. Order without Variants function is run, the Unit Cost (CC) will be copied to the production order component.
The Freeze Unit Cost (CC) check box is automatically selected for any lines with the unit cost calculated from the item configuration but can be cleared and costs can be recalculated as needed.
If lines were copied and pasted from other documents, the price of the source document will have no effect. These lines are initialized based on the master data on the Item Card (vendor number, lead time calculation, and purchase prices).
Freeze Costs with Purch. G/L Acc./Item function
Cost changes made in the purchase order using the Purch. G/L Acc./Item function are transferred to the Document BOM or Construction Order lines when the purchase order is released. At this time, the Freeze Unit Cost (CC) check box is selected on any lines where it was not previously selected.
