By Product Using Dynamics GP Manufacturing


Some manufacturing processes result in by-products—secondary products that are produced when a primary product is produced, usually at a predictable rate. For example, a furniture manufacturing business that cuts wood to specific sizes would have leftover pieces. Those leftover pieces could be scrapped, or they could be sold.

In Dynamics GP Manufacturing, you can account by product by two ways
1-    At Bill Of Material Setups
2-    At Manufacturing Receipt Entry

1-    Bill Of Material:
You can use the Bill of Materials Entry window to account for the by-products produced by your processes. To do this, add the by-product to the bill of materials as if the by-product item were a component of the bill of materials—expressing the amount of by-product produced as a negative number(-1). When finished goods are received for a manufacturing order based on the bill of materials, material transactions are created to add one of by-product to inventory.

-      Cards >> Manufacturing >> Bill Of Material
 

 

-      Select your Finished Good Item.
-      Click Add Item To Bill of material button.
-      Select Item Code, “by-Product Item Code”
-      Enter “Quantity”, it should be in negative.
-      Enter “Site ID”, where you would like to record the receipt of By-product.


2-    Manufacturing Receipt:
If you have not setup by-Product in Bill of Material or Pick-List, You can use the Manufacturing order receipts window to account for the by-products produced. To do this, add the by-product at the time of Manufacturing order receipts as a negative number.

-      Transaction >> Manufacturing >> Manufacturing Order >> MO Receipt Entry


-      Select Your Manufacturing Order
-      Click “Add Component”
-      Enter “By-Product Item Code”.

-      Enter “Quantity”, it should be in negative.
-      Enter “Site ID”, where you would like to record the receipt of By-product.


When you post manufacturing order receipt for a manufacturing order, any byproduct quantities will be added to inventory, rather than removed from inventory when the receipt is posted.

Until Next Post.
