Thanks Sharan & Rishi!

Rishi - Would this be a bug or have you been able to get actual labor
added to the production tasks.  So if the labor rate was 10 per hour and
it took 30 minutes to make 100 widgets the system would apply .05 cents
to each widget

Hi James

As mentioned I think the Cost Component Calculation is what you need and
yes it can be setup via the UI in quite a few places:




You can specify the fixed and variable parts of the calculation. If you
need something a bit more specific then you can code a calculation and
then link that coded calculation into the Cost Component Calculation.
(See GEN_COST_CALC as an example using a mixture for fixed and bespoke

You can add costs such as labour at various places (eg Routing Task)
need to be linked to a Cost Component Calculation rather than just a
rate. You can also add a labour cost to the actual product itself in
Catalog manager 


and then use the button at the bottom of the screen to auto calculate an
estimate of it.

So in general yes, you can setup and estimate the production costs
including labour etc but I think there might be something missing. I
haven’t tested intensely in manufacturing but even when I had setup
additional costs, so far I have never been able to get anything other
than the actual material costs to come on a production run. (I'm talking
about the Actual Costs tab linked to an individual production run). 

This could be missing setup or just that the tests I’ve done so far
are not comprehensive enough.
