Alloy Management for Purchases
The process of purchasing items with alloy surcharges is the same as for selling items with alloy surcharges. The calculation of the expected alloy amount is performed in the Purchase Quote, Purchase Order, and Blanket Purchase Order. Once an item with alloy specifications is entered in the purchase line, the Exp. Alloy Surcharge field shows the calculated surcharge. Choose the value in this field to open the Alloy Surcharges Lines page.
The fields in the Alloy Surcharges Lines page are described in the following table.
|Alloy Type Code||Alloy Type assigned to the item.|
|Quotation Unit||Defaults from the Alloy Type.|
|Alloy Weight (per Base Unit)||Defaults from the Alloy Condition assigned to this Alloy Type for this vendor.|
|Total Alloy Weight||Calculated by the Quantity in the purchase line + Alloy Weight (per Base Unit).|
|Exp. Alloy Price (per Base Unit)||Calculated by the Exp. Alloy Amount / Quantity (Base) of the purchase line.|
|Exp. Alloy Amount||Automatically calculated using formulas based on various settings (see Calculating Surcharges). If the calculation fields are not pre-populated with data, this field is not automatically calculated.|
|Alloy Base||Defaults from the Alloy Condition assigned to this Alloy Type for this vendor.|
|Alloy Quotation||Defaults from the Alloy Quotation of the Alloy Type, if the purchase Order Date matches a date in the Alloy Quotation. Otherwise, this field is blank.|
|Fix Values||If selected, the calculation of the Exp. Alloy Price and Exp. Alloy Amount is different: (Exp. Alloy Price (per B. Unit) * Purchase Line.Quantity (Base)) / Total Alloy Weight
Note: This value must not be used with scale surcharges. Otherwise, nothing is calculated when getting the purchase receipt line in purchase invoices.
|Reference Date||Indicates the date used for calculating the surcharge.|
|Scale Surcharge %||Indicates the scale surcharge percentage used if the alloy in the item was set up for scale surcharges and is based on the quantity.|
|Specific Quotation||Indicates that a specific quotation has been used for the alloy surcharge calculation.|
On Blanket Purchase Orders, the Exp. Alloy Surcharge field is not on the line. You must choose Line > Alloy Surcharge Lines in the Lines FastTab to open the Alloy Surcharges Lines page to view the calculation.
When purchase invoices are processed using the Get Receipt Lines function, the alloy surcharge is added as an item charge and assigned to the item.
