Nominal Integration Tab

If Stock Control is set up to integrate with the Nominal Ledger, non-material Nominal postings can be set to use different accounts according to the type of posting or the resource involved.

Material costs will use the Nominal account associated with the component stock item, but Nominal accounts for Operation costs can be taken from the Product Group of the built item or use the Resource linked to the Operation.

Use this tab to set the default codes for Work In Progress and Additional Expenses nominal postings, and to set where to find the appropriate Nominal Ledger code for Operational costs.

Before you begin

You must have:

  • Created nominal accounts in the Nominal Ledger.

To select nominal settings

Open: Cim200 Works Orders > Utilities > System Set Up > Maintain Works Order Settings | Nominal Integration

Open: Cim200 Works Orders > Utilities > System Set Up > View Works Order Settings | Nominal Integration

Use these settings to choose how to process and manage Works Orders.

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

 

Nominal Integration

Default WIP Nominal Code

Set the Default WIP Nominal Code to determine the default account for Work In Progress postings.  This account defaults to new Works Orders but can be overwritten.

 

Additional Expenses Recovery Nominal Code

Set the Additional Expenses Recovery Nominal Code to determine the default account for Additional Expense recovery postings.

 

 

Operation Cost Recovery Option

Set the required Operation Cost Recovery Option to determine where to look for the Nominal Account code to post operation times to:

  • Product Group Recovery Code uses the built item’s product group as the source for Nominal postings accounts. In Product Group maintenance the recovery Nominal accounts can be set for each Product Group.
  • Resource Recovery Code uses the Nominal code set on the Resource linked to the Works Order operation. The resource used will depend on whether it is setup, teardown, labour, or machine time.
  • Resource Cost Heading Recovery Code uses the Nominal code set on the Cost Heading for the Resource linked to the Works Order operation. The resource used will depend on whether it is setup, teardown, labour, or machine time.

Note: For Subcontract costs, the Nominal code will always be taken from the Subcontract Recovery field on the Cim200 tab of the Product Group record for the built item’s product group.

Operation Overhead Cost Recovery Option

Set the Operation Overhead Recovery Option to determine where to look for the Nominal Account code to post overhead costs to:

  • Resource Overhead % uses the Overhead Nominal code set on the Resource linked to the Works Order operation. The resource used will depend on whether it is setup, teardown, labour, or machine time.
  • Resource Cost Heading Overhead % uses the Overhead Nominal code set on the Cost Heading for the Resource linked to the Works Order operation. The resource used will depend on whether it is setup, teardown, labour, or machine time.

 

Allow Operation Resource Selection

Tick Allow Operation Resource Selection to have the Operation Times/Costs and Enter Timesheets screens detail each operation by resource.

For example, where an operation involves a Setup Labour step with one labour resource, a Runtime Labour step with another labour resource, and a Runtime Machine step with a machine resource, the Operation Times/Costs screen will display 3 lines for the operation; one for each different resource.  Operation times must then be recorded on the appropriate line for the resource involved.

This option is useful when the Operation Cost Recovery Option or Operation Overhead Recovery Option is set to use either the Resource or Resource Cost Heading, so that the user can define the correct resource to use.

 

Summarise Nominal Postings

To make one posting to account per batch of postings, select the Summarise Nominal Postings check box.

 

 

Product Group Defaults

If the Operation Cost Recovery Option is set to Product Group Recovery Code, set the appropriate Nominal accounts to use for each non-material cost type.

The accounts set here are only defaults.  The accounts can be overridden on each Product Group, and changes here will not automatically update the Product Group settings.

  • Click Apply Recovery Codes to Product Groups to update existing Product Groups to use the Nominal Codes set here.
  • Tick the box for each Product Group to update, or click Select All to update all Product Groups.
  • Click Apply to apply the update to all select Product Groups.
