Co/by product maintenance
Posted by on 14 February 2014 10:36 AM

Purpose

Co-Product/By-Product structures identify the co-products and by-products for a base process. These product structures are single level relationships between a base process and a Co-Product/By-Product, where the base process is a component and the Co-Product/By-Product is a parent. Co-Product/By-Product structures determine the quantity of a co-product or a by-product produced from a base process.

A base process can produce one or more co-products and/or by-products.

Co/By-product Maintenance is not used for recyclable materials.

Method 

 

BOM/Formula Code: Enter the code identifying the base process in this co-product/by-product structure. The base process must meet the following requirements:

It must be a valid item number defined in the Item Master that is not configured and not defined as a global phantom.

The BOM/Formula field in Item Planning must be blank or the same as the base item number.

It can not be defined as a co-product or by-product of another base process or as a component of a standard product structure.

It can not have any alternative structures.

Backflush Method: This determines the calculation method used to backflush base process components.

  1. Use method 1 when the quantity for a batch is directly related to the sum of its output. This method is generally appropriate when there is greater variability in the output % for the various products.
  2. Use method 2 when the batch quantity is closely related to the expected output of a particular co-product.

Quantity Completed Method: This field determines the method used by Work Order Accounting Close to calculate the base process quantity complete for a joint order set.  Valid values are SUM, SUMC, MAX, MIN and ORD.

  1. SUM – the total quantity complete for all co-products and by-products uin the joint order set
  2. SUMC – the total quantity complete for co-products only
  3. MAX – base process quantity required to complete the co-product that consumed the greatest amount of the base process in proportion to the quantity ordered
  4. MIN – the base process quantity required to complete the co-product that consumed the least amount of the base process in proportion to the quantity ordered.
  5. ORD – the quantity ordered on the base process order.

Co/By-Product: Enter the number identifying a co-product or by-product associated with this base process. You must specify a valid item defined in the item master. The item can not be:

                A configured product

                A phantom

                A base process item

Start Effective:  Leave this field blank as it will be populated by PCO amendments.  

Click next to continue

Co/By Type: Enter either C for Co-Product or B for By-Product. A co-product is a product that is the intended result of a process and usually has significant sales value. A by-product is a product that is an incidental result of a process and usually has little sales value.

Quantity:  If quantity type = B for batch, then enter quantity per batch here. If quantity type = P for percentage, then leave blank.

Quantity Type: Enter B for Batch, P for Percentage or leave blank to indicate per base process unit.

Click on next to continue

Process: If quantity type = P, enter percentage per batch, if quantity type = B or blank, leave set to 0%

Cost Allocation: Enter the % of base process cost to be allocated to this co-product. If quantity type = B, an allocation % can not be entered.

Structure Type: this field is display only and always set to J for joint.  

Start Effective:  Leave this field blank as it will be populated by PCO Process

End Effective:  Leave this field blank as it will be populated by the PCO Process

Remarks: Optionally, enter co-product/by-product remarks

Operation: For co-products/by-products, this field is for reference only and may appear on some selected reports and enquiries. 

Sequence: Optionally, enter a sequence number, this will determine what order the components will appear in product structure reports.

Option Group: Leave blank as this field is not required.

Process: Leave blank as this field is not required.
