Tooling cost to jobs

We actually JUST started doing this. Here we have group leader for each of
our departments and the group manager manages inventory for his department.
He does the adding to a job and issuing when a tool is required for a job.

One thing we have already found is now that we manage tooling, we have
consumed a lot less without any quality issues.

Subject: [Vantage] Tooling cost to jobs

We currently do not track tooling cost to a job within Vantage. Could
anybody doing this provide some feedback as to how it is working for
you?

The easiest way I can see to do this within Vantage's job structure
would be to setup a single material line (Tooling), manage the
inventory, and issue tooling against that line. The downside is it is
going to create more processing for our tool crib.

TIA for your help again,

I really don't know how people can say this group is not useful.

We do a line item on the sales order for tooling (either billable or non
billable) Cut a linked job, using subassemblies for the various tooling
components. any material purchased for these are bought to the job and
assembly, any shop labor is clocked accordingly.
