We are using standard cost in AX2009 and using costing versions to rollup costs periodically.
We have a Bom at Level 0, a subbom and level 1, another subbom at level 2 and items at level 3.
The subbom at level 2 is usually purchased, so we want to add a manual standard cost at this level which we can do by accessing item details - price button and entering a manual line on the pending tab.
If we then rollup costs for level 1, the costs are rolled up correctly. However, if we then try to rollup the top level item at level 0, the complete calculation breakdown (accessed from the complete button on the pending costs tab detailed above) doesn’t reconcile as the level 2 materials do not include the purchased subbom.
Has anyone else experienced this kind of issue or have any pointers on what could be done to rectify. For reference, I have removed the manually entered cost price and rolled up and this works ok.
We get the same results whether the cost is activated or not, but it is currently activated. The price on the level 2 item record is the last activated cost, which is currently a manually entered value.
According to Standard cost principle, the cost rollup is limited to level 1, it will not consider the other levels. This is a standard procedure given by microsoft. even in the BOM calculation, once the standard cost costing version is selected, the BOM level is greyed out not giving an option to select multi level cost rollup.
