Thanks all.

Especially to Dave Turbide for the generous offer below, and to Mike Taylor @ Cistech for an implementation plan!

I'm on vacation this week so only checking email once a day. I'd be happy to chat with you about converting to standard costing.

In addition to setting the interfaces, you'll need to decide on a number of procedural issues including how "standard" you want to be. MAPICS gives you a number of choices in tailoring and there are procedures you'll want to set up to gather the information and get it posted in the right places.

I usually don't recommend automatic posting to G/L of everything that MAPICS is capable of doing - there are some variance calculations that are better done manually, in most cases. That said, the G/L interface can gather a lot of data for you that you can manually post and/or use to validate info that you gather in other ways so it makes sense to "activate" even if you aren't going to automatically post.

Anyway, if you can wait a couple days I'd be happy to spend some time with you on the phone next week. If there's something critical, drop me an email directly at dave@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx with your phone number and I'll call you.

subject: [MAPICS-L] FW: Implementing Standard Costing


Happy New Year all!

I am looking at implementing standard costing (XA R6) and was curious if
anyone knew of any guides from Infor or other sources to assist.

I see that we need to re-tailor from Actual to Standard (what will that
impact?). We currently use actual costing, but it is well structured outside
of MAPICS.

And not sure about this other PCC question currently set to NO:
C17 DO YOU WANT TO HAVE GENERAL LEDGER DISTRIBUTION?

Do the Router Variance (RV), Purchasing Variance (PV), and Material Usage
Variance (MUV) reports come out of AMC530 (Order closeout and purge)?
Are there any practical guides to the parameters for AMC530 as well as cost
roll-ups?


I did search the ML, but it was very issue specific, and I'm still at the
10,000 foot level.



Thanks in advance for any direction you may provide!
