MFG - Finished Prod. Order - Changing Production Cost on Adjust Cost Batch Job


Item No. A1234, Costing Method : Standard, Standard Cost of say 100, is a MFG Item and has a production bom attached to it which consists of Items with costing method Average.

As we know Average cost of an Item keeps changing when a transaction is posted.

On a Finished Production order for item A1234 the Actual Cost ( Staticitics Window ) also changes when the Adjust Cost Item Entries batch job is run.

Why should the Actual Cost of a finished production order change ? on 2nd Aug 2006 the Actual Cost was eg. 500 after purchasing some items from the production bom of item A1234 at a different cast the Actual Cost changes to say 600. I dont understand why should this happen.

Any thoughts ?

Thanks in advance

Does the actual cost alter on the ledger entry of the output - it maybe an F9 issue, what version are you running?

I am running version 4.00 SP1, I dont think the cost on the output will change as the item is a Standard Cost Item.

The Costing Method of the components being used to manufacture is Average and changes everytime a purchase is posted at a different cost. This in turn changes the Actual Cost of the Finished Production Order on Production Order Statistic window after the Adjust Cost Item Entries batch is run.

I am not great at Manufacturing, so looking for help.


If the cost of the output is not altering you are okay, this will mean it is just a bug in the F9 statistics screen, unless the field you are looking at should report the “actual cost” then of course it is correct!
