The Job Cost module is used in various industries including Construction, Real Estate, Project Management, Research and Development just to name a few. This module interfaces with Financial, Distribution, Manufacturing, and HRM/Payroll.  In Job Cost, either projects or jobs are used. A project can contain numerous jobs, but a job will have a one to one relationship.  This document details the setup of the Job Cost module and how it integrates with the Procurement module.

Job Cost integrates with ANY module that creates F0911 records that eventually update the F0902 file.  Job Cost just reads what is in the F0902.  As long as any module can get the data to the Business Unit/Job/Project (all pretty much the same thing except projects are jobs that have jobs rolled up to them) the Job Cost System can handle it.

For example, if a Branch Plant is listed or Business Unit on a screen then the data can be recorded to the Business Unit which usually gets updated depending on setup to the (BU.OBJ.SUB) account.

As long as the F0902 records are in the same business unit/job/project, that profit recognition is being run on, Job Cost will handle it.  The accounts need to be included in the JCCA/JCST AAI ranges.  The JCCA-Revenue and JCST-Cost AAIs control the accounts that are considered cost and revenue accounts. As long as the cost and revenue accounts are in these ranges it doesn't matter what type of account they are.  The system does not care what the account is called.  The system uses the cost accounts and the revenue accounts to determine what gets moved during Profit Recognition/Create Journal Entries from the balance sheet to the income statement and uses these amounts either cost or revenue to calculate the AA/HA (Percent Complete).

However, if you want to use the functionality in Job Cost all Jobs/Business Unit/Projects should be created using the Job Cost system and not in the General Accounting system.  Also, the accounts (BU.OBJ.SUB) should be created using Job Cost and NOT General Accounting.
