Job Posting Groups
Job Posting Groups are used to direct postings for Work in Progress (WIP) job activities to accounts within the General Ledger. The default Job Posting Group is set up when the initial setup is run (using the Job Setup Checklist); however, the accounts need to be specified.
The fields on this page that are relevant for COSMO Project Manufacturing are described in the following table.
|Code||Unique identifier for the posting group.|
|Description||Short description of the posting group.|
|Default WIP Method||WIP Method that will be defaulted to the Job Card for this posting group. The options are Cost Value, Sales Value, Cost of Sales, Percentage of Completion, and Completed Contract.|
|WIP Value||Asset account, used to capture the calculated job value; that is, for expenses that can be processed at a later time.|
|WIP Prospective Cost||Liabilities account, used to capture the expected future cost; that is, for expenses that are released but will be processed at a later time.|
|WIP Impending Losses||Accrual account, used to capture exceeded estimated costs.|

|WIP Adm./Sales %||Percentage value to reduce the calculated WIP based on the WIP Method:

A minimum of 0 and a maximum of 100 can be entered.

If the Job Posting Group has been used by any WIP calculation and posting, it is not possible to change parameters in the Job Posting Group. Additional set up can be performed at any time but will only apply to future job activities; they cannot be made retroactively.
