Here's an easy-to-understand / graphically-laid-out / affordable
resource to guide your BPCS v4 set-up steps:
Before starting, I would recommend that your company polish up
it's formal cost accounting policy. In my experience, if you start working
on cost accounting setup in an ERP system before the officers of the
company sign off on a corporate financial policy, then you'll end up
configuring cost accounting all over again at some future time.
If you'd like to see a "pro-forma" of a very comprehensive corporate
cost accounting policy, please give me a call. The content goes
beyond vanilla topics to handle the genre of sophisticated issues that
present themselves when a company has multiple overseas locations.

Subject: [BPCS-L] Implementing Cost Accounting
We are currently running on V4.03 and I have been asked to implement the
Cost Account function of BPCS. We currently have most of the modules
installed, but not necessarily using them to their full potential. Does
any one have any recommendations as to the best approach to implement
costing? Basically, we want to use a standard labor and overhead cost
for the entire year, plus actual material costs.
Are all the set ups necessary in BPCS to do this? I was told, going
forward, we will implement more and more of BPCS manufacturing, but not
right now. I know I can plow through the run manual for Costing, but
I'm hoping I can get some quick input from the community.
Thanks in advance -
