Track production cost discrepancies and keep data correct all the time

Production Order Cost Calculation for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

Production Order Cost Calculation is the intelligent way to find discrepancies in productions costs – and correct master data in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Track production cost discrepancies

In standard Business Central you can see what an item’s resource cost is at an individual level or accumulated level.

With Production Order Cost Calculation you can follow it all the way down to the operational level and distinguish between Setup time and Operation time, as well as between direct and indirect costs.

This allows you to quickly compare what the cost should have been according to the Routing and BOM, in relation to what the actual cost was. Thus, you can quickly and effectively correct the master data.

Comparison of master data with records

When a Production Order is finished, you can do a final calculation of the cost.

In doing so, the projected cost of the order is calculated and divided not only into all Materials and all Operations, but it is also broken down into direct and indirect costs.

The projected cost is compared with the actual registered costs and discrepancies are shown both as actual amounts and as percentages.

Discrepancies are shown separately for the total production order, for all materials on the order’s BOM and for all operations on the order’s routing.

Focus on the largest discrepancies

From Production Order Cost Calculation you can open a new window where all the lines can be overviewed.

This enables you to periodically search for the lines with the greatest percentage of discrepancies – or those that have the greatest financial impact – and examine those Routings and Bills of Materials in details. This way, you can quickly find the largest discrepancies.

Assess data over time

The calculated data is stored in a table, and gradually you build a history of production data. You can look back in time and compare data from the same operation and find significant discrepancies.

When you find an order with discrepancies in any operation or material consumption, you can easily compare it with previous orders and find out whether the discrepancy is a one-off or something symptomatic.
