I'm hoping someone here can help me understand something. We are using Average Costing for all of our parts. We recently processed a job incorrectly and now we have a costing variance. Here is the scenario


1. 5 pieces on hand at a cost of $174.49 each.

2. Manufactured 10 at a cost of $259.93 each.

3. Average cost recalculates to $231.45 each (no journal entry because we are on Average)

4. Reverse the Manufacturing receipt of 10 for $259.93 each

5. System generated a Cost Adjustment of $284.81 (increasing inventory)

I can calculate the $284.81 by increasing the average cost of the 5 previous parts on hand up to the "new" average of $231.45 (calculation: 231.45-174.49 = 56.96 * 5 = 284.81).

So here is my question. If I reversed the Manufacturing Receipt, shouldn't the average stay the way it was prior to my receipt? Why is Vantage recalculating the cost and increasing my inventory value?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

That is by design epicor will tell you. It's a bug in my opinion and I
fought it for years to no avail. My argument was that when a
transaction is reversed it must use the same cost as the original
transaction but instead it uses the cost as you describe. Many of the
"adjustment" programs have flaws in the logic but you won't ever
convince Epicor of it.

Take care,

Michelle,



What is your mix of make direct vs build to stock? Have you thought
about putting some controls on receipts to stock? We had enormous
troubles with this for the same reasons Darren touched on. Our
solutions may not work for your business model (on average we are 92%
make direct), but we have seen huge benefits from putting some controls
on that process.

Rob,

Thanks for the response. We are 99% make to stock. And the issue we had here, was that the user received the wrong job (typo), realized what he had done, reversed it and then received the correct job. So, I'm not sure what type of control to put on this process to prevent that from happening in the future.

Any ideas would be great.

Thanks,

We were advised by our consultants during implementation to make our manufactured parts standard cost rather than average cost. The way Vantage handles adjustments may be one reason why that was suggested.
On a side note, in version 8.03.406A there is a bug in labor entry. For example, labor is posted to a job and an overrun to the job is received into stock as a manufacturing receipt and the operator notices an incorrect job number has been entered (a typo). When the operator corrects the job number, the overrun received into stock is NOT reversed. Everything else is reversed correctly including any material backflushes. The incorrect manufacturing receipt has to be adjusted thru an inventory adjustment. This happens even if the mistake is caught and corrected before the line is saved. We are currently on 8.03.409A the and bug is still there. The SCR for this is 63425.
