Job cost in 8.03.305C

After you complete all the job op steps and print out your production detail report and an INV/WIP report on that job specifically, have you done a cost analysis to see where the costs are flowing through which GLs?

Subject: [Vantage] job cost in 8.03.305C

We are trying to convert from 5.0 to 8.030, so sorry for all the
questions!

In piloting 8.03 it appears that adding job material in job entry (not
defined as a part), requesting an RFQ, and creating a PO though Buyers
Workbench that it creates a PO for material type "other" and the cost
never hit the Job. Also adding job material using a part defined as a
part master with the quantity bearing field checked and then creating
the PO though Buyers Workbench that these cost do not flow to the job
either. The Quantity bearing field I do not believe was used in 5.0,
and it is checked by default during the database conversion. Are people
doing material issues from inventory to get these cost into the job? It
appears as if purchasing the same material in PO entry that I can select
the material type as "Job Material" and have material cost hitting the
job and showing up in WIP. If this is correct it seems that by-passing
the Buyers Workbench is the most efficient way to have material cost
hitting the job?

Thoughts, guidance, .....Tequila
