Scrap Costing Blank Title 107628

When you scrap an item from a job the cost of the item stay with the
job. This mean that the cost of the finished item will be inflated by
the amount of what you have scrapped. An important notice to this is
that you CANNOT report on the cost of scrapIf you do a non-conform the
cost is moved from the job as you have mentioned. Then when the job is
received to stock the items values is not inflated. the problem with
doing a non-conform you will have to do additional step in QA. But you
will be able to report on the scrap cost.

We have the inventory interface turned on. If I enter "scrap" on the
MES screen for a job, is that cost being recorded anywhere or hitting
the GL automatically?

We are on Vantage 8.03.409c. I am a little fuzzy on scrap costing. We have the inventory interface turned on. If I enter "scrap" on the MES screen for a job, is that cost being recorded anywhere or hitting the GL automatically?

Then there is also the non-conform box. I understand we can move the costs all the way to a DMR here and it will hit the bottom line once failed at the DMR. If I enter 5 pcs in the scrap box and 5 pcs in the non-conform box, am I double dipping?

Any guidance is much appreciated!

I can try to answer that for you. The issue on where it hits the g/l is where you pointed your DMR write off account in your company maintenance. Essentially scrapping a part out through labor entry as well as the ncr/dmr process is the same thing. The issue is how you want to control your non-conforming material. You can assign a hierarchy of who can scrap via MES (such as set up parts) and force everyone else to enter non-conformances that require quality or management over-site.

Hope this helps
