Information in this document applies to any platform.
Our company is introducing a new method for using JDE Software release A9.2.1. We will be introducing sub-contracting with a variety of suppliers. Each supplier will be making one SKU. Due to this new method, our Bill of Material and Standard Routings need to be amended as new costs are being created. For example, labor rates, weight and now packaging need to be setup.
We are requesting your assistance and advice for how to set all of these changes up in manufacturing, manufacturing product costing and manufacturing accounting.
Two ideas have been brought up to address this issue. May we have your input?
1) Should we adjust the Bill Type, data dictionary item IXTBM, to capture different vendors thereby having a different bill of material, which is identified by the 'Bill Type' (i.e. each vendor gets a unique Bill Type)
2) Expand to the work order routing of the Bill of Material to capture the labor, weight, and packaging. In this case the Routing Type, data dictionary item IRTRT, would be used to identify the unique vendor, building our product (SKU).
