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

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 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.
