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.

   Subject: Surcharges
   Date: Mon, 19 Apr 2004 11:38:56 -0400
   I'm looking for ideas regarding passing on surcharges. I've looked at
   but their process will not work, because the surcharges we receive is
   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?
