Gerry,
When the system is setup for costng by facility, how do you use the global BOM to cost labor and overhead?

A Global BOM sets a company standard material usage and cost as opposed
to a Facility specific BOM, where material usages, manufacturing
processes and labor standards and costs may vary.

Global BOMs derive their costs from Global Costs, (cost buckets with no
value in the Facility field of the CMF file. If you have multiple
facilities and have different BOMs for these facilities, you would use
Facility specific BOMs. An example is a national baker which would use
slightly different recipes for the same product in different regions of
the country. The variations are chiefly due to fluctuations in the
amount of yeast and moisture used due to local conditions. The same
reasoning would apply for different labor processes, standards and rates
in different parts of the country; these would be accounted for in Work
Center Labor Rates (LWK file) and in the Routings, (FRT file).

Simply put, if you make all your products with the same material usages
and costs with the same labor rates using the same processes, the Global
BOM will fit your needs.

subject: [BPCS-L] Very unclear - Planning Globally vs by Facility

I am setting up various test environments. I see that I can set up the
BOM without putting in a Planning Facility - called Global Planning.
Or, I can put in the facility code - called Planning by Facility.

Does these two methods produce different results? Or, does it just give
you the ability to break up the planning runs so that they do not have
to process all facilities at one time?? Yet, you would have to run the
planning for all 3 facilities anyway, right?

TIA,
Don

Basically you have a choice.
You can run your company as if facilities do not exist, or if everything
is same facility, or you can run your company with different facilities,
or you can have a

confused mess.

"Global" is for if you are not using the facilities feature of BPCS.

In some files you really need to have one or the other populated ...
facilities or global, not both. In other files, the only impact of
having population you aint using is the disk space and file access
inefficiency.

Let's suppose the different facilities are geographically separated, not
in the same city. You might want to allow transit time between them.
This is impractical if same facility.

You can have different rules for how the facilities function.

If all your facilities are identical in function, and not separated
geographically, then perhaps you are trying to use the facilities
function to resolve something where warehouses would be the answer. We
have multiple warehouses inside the same facility building:
* shipping warehouse = end customer parts about ready to go out
* work-in-progress making sub-assemblies prior to final assembly
* etc.

In BPCS 405CD, warehouses can be further sub-divided into locations.
Once upon a time we did this, but there was a trade-off between
inventory accuracy and all the extra move transactions needed to get the
inventory

from one location to another.

Also, inventory backflushing from labor in BPCS is not very intelligent
when it comes to picking locations to deduct the inventory from.

If you are running by facility, there are several files which must be
populated for that facility, for the whole ball of wax to run correctly.
Fortunately, BPCS provides capabilities to copy stuff from one facility
reality to another. However, for mass copies of thousands of items, you
may need outside programming help.

I am setting up various test environments. I see that I can set up the

BOM without putting in a Planning Facility - called Global Planning.
Or,
I can put in the facility code - called Planning by Facility.

Does these two methods produce different results? Or, does it just
give
you the ability to break up the planning runs so that they do not have

process all facilities at one time?? Yet, you would have to run the
planning for all 3 facilities anyway, right?
