Shop Floor Control - Cost Adjustment Entry



This task allows adjustment of open work order operation and subcontract transactions. (Material is returned to stock via the Materials Issues Entry task, which allows negative issues.) Depending on which type of transaction is being adjusted, operations or subcontract, different fields display.


=>To access this menu...

Select Cost Adjustment Entry from the Transaction Processing menu.


Cost Adjustment Entry


Cost Adjustment Entry transactions are made by recalling the erroneous transaction and entering the correct information. The work order transaction file and any appropriate general ledger accounts will then be adjusted automatically by the system.


Because subcontract costs are posted to work orders using the purchase order cost rather than the invoice cost, it is sometimes necessary to adjust subcontract transactions when the invoice cost is different from the purchase order cost. Subcontract transaction adjustments also may be necessary when subcontracted items are consumed in a work order other than the work order for which they were ordered. Operation adjustments are generally necessary because a time sheet was incorrectly completed or incorrectly entered.
