Auto Generate Subcontract Quantity Breaks

Where a Works Order involves subcontract operations, supplier prices can be setup with quantity breaks so that, where the price changes according to the quantity ordered, the Purchase Order to the subcontractor can still be generated with the correct price.

Multiple suppliers can be set against a subcontract operation, and each can have its own set of quantity breaks.

To streamline setting up quantity breaks, use this screen to define the number of breaks and how each one should be populated.

To enter or amend Subcontract Quantity Breaks

Open: Cim200 Works Orders > Works Orders > Enter New Works Order | Operations | Subcontract
Open: Cim200 Works Orders > Works Orders > Amend Works Order | Operations | Subcontract
Open: Cim200 Works Orders > Works Orders > Amend Works Order (Elevated Privileges) | Operations | Subcontract
Open: Cim200 Works Orders > Enquiries > View Works Order | Operations | Subcontract

Note: The View Works Order option allows you to view the orders but not amend them.
