The Add/Edit Component window is opened from several different locations:
- Tree View expansion button
- List View expansion button
- BOM-Routing Link
Line: the BOM Line will increment automatically based on the Manufacturing BOM Preference Defaults setting for “New Component Position Number incremental spacing”. See Tools >> Setup >> Manufacturing >> System Defaults >> Bill of Materials.
Component Item Number: Enter an Item or select one from the Lookup. The item can either be a GP Inventory item, or a new ME Item. If it is a new item you will be required to enter a Source Item Number.
Source Item Number: for new Items, this field is required. The Source Item provides two important settings for the new component: (1) Unit of Measure schedule and (2) Quantity Decimals. Later when the ME is Accepted, the Source Item will be used when creating the new item to provide all of the other setup information needed by GP for an item.
BOM Type: if the component is a made item (either GP Manufacturing, or it has an existing ME BOM), select the appropriate BOM Type.
BOM ID: if the BOM Type selected was ARCH BOM or Mfg Est BOM, a BOM ID will be required. For ARCH BOMs the “BOM Name” is the BOM ID.
Quantity: Enter the quantity needed of the item per-unit of the made item.
U of M: select the Unit of Measure.
Item Description: for new ME Items the Item Description will be a required field.
Shipping Weight: This is informational only. The Shipping Weight will be set on Item Maintenance when a new item is created.
Unit Cost: enter the Unit Cost of the item.
Extended Cost: The extended cost reflects the total quantity needed of a part (Per Piece Quantity + Shrink and Fixed Quantity) multiplied by the Unit Cost.
Total Quantity: Shows the total quantity needed, which includes Per Piece Quantity + Shrink, and Fixed Quantity.
Issue From Site: enter the site where the material will be issued from for a manufacturing order.
Issue To Site: enter the site (work center) where the item will be issued to.
Vendor Quote Information: the fields below Vendor ID are intended to record the information related to a quoted price from a Vendor. If this information is provided, when the Mfg Est is accepted, an Item-Vendor record will be created using the information provided, and the Quoted Unit Cost will be come the Last Invoice Cost / Originating Invoice Cost. If the Item-Vendor record already exists, the Last Invoice Cost / Originating Invoice Cost fields will be updated.
- Vendor ID: enter the Vendor ID
- Vendor Item Number: enter the Vendor Item Number (the part number as it is ordered from the Vendor).
- Vendor Item Description: description of the Vendor’s part.
- Quoted Unit Cost:
- Quoted Extended Cost: neither of the cost fields affect the item’s Unit Cost.
Fixed Quantity: a fixed quantity is used if, regardless of the quantity of finished good produced, you need the same quantity of the component.
U of M: select the Fixed Quantity’s unit of measure.
User Defined Fields: the two fields labeled UDF1 and UDF2 are user defined fields. The labels are set in the Manufacturing BOM Preference Defaults window. See Tools >> Setup >> Manufacturing >> System Defaults >> Bill of Materials.
Floor Stock: floor stock are inexpensive items that can be used at will. These items should be backflushed. GP Manufacturing will not include the cost of these items in the standard cost calculation, however the ME Costing routine will include them.
Backflush: backflushed items do not need to be Issued with a Component Transaction to an MO.
Use Single Lot: when consuming the item (lot controlled items only), the entire quantity must be pulled from one Lot Number.
Alternate: this item can be used as an alternate for another item on the ME BOM.
Lead Time Offset: the number of days affects how MRP calculates the date on which the component is required, and affects when it is required by an MO when the MO is scheduled. Refer to Lead Time Calculations in the manufacturing help or online documentation.
Shrink %: the anticipated loss of the component during manufacturing. The Shrink % affects the amount of the item needed by an MO because it will calculate the quantity needed to compensate for the expected shrink. See Shrinkage for Bill of Materials Components in the manufacturing help or online documentation. Shrink affects the Per Piece quantity, and is always rounded up. For a component measured in whole units, any amount of shrink can result in adding another unit because the required quantity is rounded up to the next whole unit.
Option %: this field is not used by ME BOMs. Option BOMs are not supported.
In Date: the In-Date controls when an component will start being used by Manufacturing Orders. An MO created before an item’s In-Date will not include the item on the Picklist.
Out Date: the Out-Date controls when a component will no longer be used by Manufacturing Orders. An MO created after an Item’s Out Date will not include the item on the Picklist.
See Bill of Materials And Component Effective Dates in the manufacturing help, or online documentation for more information about In/Out Dates.
Notes: the BOM Line notes are accessed through the Notes button in the lower-right of the window. The Note button next to Component Item Number opens the Item Number note. The BOM Line notes on the ME are converted to Manufacturing BOM Line Notes when the ME is Accepted:
New items (ME Items) are automatically added to the ME Item Master. This is a table that tracks the new items and the settings on the item. See the Section Mfg Estimate Items.
