Hey Skip Pete and I are in the mist of this as we speak. We will use the com surcharge by line item facility, but 'auto' populate the surcharge field during com order entry (in vanilla mapics this has to be keyed, if item related) . This of course supplies an additional line item on the ack, and invoice. (we are using a percent of line item sales). now to your specific question: We are having the Eng dept determine the %(s) to use and develope the surcharge table. Then assign the items using a user field - itmreva. (subsetting and mass replace) The mix of wts and alloys at the saleable assembly level is being determined by Eng to develope the proper coding. (not an exact science) Also we are using % of sales, could also use a rate per pc. As for cost, profitability: We do include pur surcharge in our 'std' cost - purch OH, actually we just split the surcharge out using the 'other cost fields' . We will know what our total surcharge billings are by code, and capture to GL (thru com gl interface , uses RILS, spl chg code). Admittedly, analysis of profitability by item would be difficult, ill ask if this is a concern here. hope this helps.

I've looked at MAPICS but their process will not work, because the surcharges we receive is based on weight of an alloy. Each part number needs it's own calculation. The customer will see Alloy surcharges at invoice time. Of course we have the G/L. Also the sale analyst, by item, needs to be reflective of the surcharge to reflect the profitability. What has the group done? Any ideas? _______________________________________________ This is the MAPICS ERP System Discussion (MAPICS-L) mailing list To post a message email: MAPICS-L@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/mapics-l or email: MAPICS-L-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/mapics-l. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Stop worrying about overloading your inbox - get MSN Hotmail Extra Storage!
