Have you considered using two component numbers, BBB1
(purchased) and BBB2 (mfd) - both made to the same drawing, and create
two different bills of material for AA, under two method codes, one
using BBB! And the other using BBB2?
That would give you two different actual costs for AA, depending
on whether you used the mfd or purchased version of AA.
Subject: [BPCS-L] Question about Manufacture and Purchased Parts
We are currently at BPCS 6.0.2. I hope someone can give me a suggestion.
We have a product AA that uses component BBB. This BBB item is currently
set at Item Type 7 in our BPCS. However, this same component is also
purchased outside(so shld be treated as Item Type 2). How should this be
setup in BPCS in such a way that we can separate manufactured and
purchased components even if they are the same item? Our costing result
is affected because amount of manufactured component has big variance
with the purchased one.
