Currently, the standard cost is only SKU specific for purchased Items. In order to calculate manufacturing variances it is necessary to have the following fields, which are only present on the Item Card: Single-Level Material Cost, Single-Level Capacity Cost, Single-Level Subcontrd. Cost, Single-Level Cap. Ovhd Cost, Single-Level Mfg. Ovhd Cost.
In order to handle a situation where there are different production costs per SKU, an option to define BOM and routing details by SKU would be required and this is not currently available.
Please see the following potential workarounds for this situation:
Hello, I was wondering why #2 says "Only consumes materials int he manufacturing process"? As in, doesn't create any output? I am currently testing and working with development on creating a solution by modifying the Adjust Cost Item Entries routine, which seemed to be the only possible area to get SKU Standard Cost on Output when expected is moved to actual. If you have any other input or references to this being done by someone else it would be great to see. Thanks for this post!
