Dale,

Yes, I did get some insight from Dave Turbide. He sent me a tip that put me in the right direction!

Thanks for asking.

James,


Did you get an answer?   We had a fairly complex overhead calculation scheme, which varied depending on work center.  Fortunately, XA handles that nicely, with an overhead rate/percentage in the work center file, and a code that lets you select how you calculate the overhead.  It worked OK for us, although we had to take the output and run it through some additional accounting processing to get the desired numbers (you know, the usual... phase of the moon, alignment of Jupiter and Mars, etc).  Seriously, what they give you in the WRKCTR file is usually sufficient.  We had a union shop, so our rates were always fixed, which made it nice.

Subject: [MAPICS-L] PCC Overhead Calculation

Hello all,

I'm working on a weekend project (yeah!!!) and am trying to determine what comprises the overhead (found on screen AMC030). What is of particular interest is jobs that spanned quarters. So how can I calculate how much of the overhead was incurred in Q1 and how much in Q2?

I've reviewed the MAPICS PCC manual that described overhead as 50% of labor for the workcenter. However that doesn't pan out for our orders.  Overhead is significantly higher that labor & setup combined.

We are not tailored for standard cost, but last cost.  If that's a factor.

Undoubtedly there is something I am missing, or do not understand.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
