Exact for Manufacturing Ease of Use: Cost Breakdown in the BOM

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online


The bill-of-materials (BOM) in Exact for Manufacturing has separate screens to maintain materials and routing. To understand the contribution of materials and routing to the total (calculated) cost price, one has to view both screens. A recent enhancement shows a summary of total material cost, inside routing and outside routing in base currency and in percentage of total cost price.

Cost Breakdown in the BOM

In the maintenance of the bill-of-materials version, [Inventory] Items, Bill of materials, tab General, we have added two columns for Cost estimates per [unit], one in base currency, and one in percentage. The values displayed are respectively for Routing: inside, Routing: outside, Material and By-product.
