Single part jobs that create two parts

Have you looked into the salvage function? Not sure how it handles costs,
but that's probably the most reliable way to get both part numbers into
inventory.

Good Morning/Afternoon,

We're looking for some advice on how to handle a specific scenario. We have
some ideas but decided that 700 heads were better than two.

We have a part, lets call it 1112/1113. A job is created for this part
1112/1113. It is a circuit board that has a kit of hundreds of components
issued to it. All labor is put into this single part. However, at the very
last step, the board is split into two different parts and will be inventoried
as part 1112 and 1113.

Creating two jobs for this scenario is somewhat unwieldy due to the complexity
in breaking apart the raw material (component) part kits.

An additional issue is that we use a standard cost system. Vantage doesn't
handle this very elegantly but we are looking for creative work arounds that
will minimize the cost of processing these types of transactions.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Mike,

We have the same problem we make A's and B's or rights and lefts we run them under one job 123456-A/B. The A/B part in not in the partmaster and can not be received
into inventory. We are on Vantage 4.0 and we change the part number on the job to the -A and receive half the quantity and then change the part number to -B and receive the
balance and change the job back to the A/B when finished and close the job. If you look at the job receipts it shows the A's and the B's received.
I hope this helps you out.
