Direct Manufacturing Cost Group (Production)

Direct Material (Purchased – Raw Material) – Internal Consumption

Direct Material (Purchased – Raw Material) – External bought-outs

5. Create the Shared Categories and Cost Categories: Cost Management > Manufacturing
Accounting Policies Setup > Shared Categories / Cost Categories

Shared Category:
Example of Shared Category (Used in Project & Expense with Subcategories)

a. For creation of Cost Categories > Necessarily you have to create the category in Shared Category
b. The ‘Usage’ of the category need to be necessarily tagged with ‘Yes’

Shared Category with Production Usage Tagged

Cost Category:
Fill in:
a. Category ID: Same as Shared Category
b. Category Name
c. You can select the Usage as ‘Use in Project’ to be ‘Yes’ provided the Shared category is already tagged
with the same

Cost Category – Usage

Select in Production Fast Tab:
a. Cost Group
b. The Category ID will be automatically filled in

Production Fast Tab in Cost Category

Select from the Ledger Posting Fast Tab:

a. Estimated and actual cost ledger for Manufacturing
b. Estimated and actual cost for WIP

7. Create the Cost Sheet: Cost Management > Indirect Cost Accounting Policies Setup / Ledger
Integration Policies Setup:
The setup can be a combination of:
a. Direct Cost: Comprising of
1. Purchase Material Cost
2. Stock material Cost
b. Outsourced Cost
c. Production Cost
d. Overhead cost based on each level above
So, based on the above the following can be made as:

Cost Of manufacturing
Direct Cost - Material
Direct Stocked Material Cost
Direct Purchase Material Cost
Direct Cost-Production
Direct Cost–Production
Steps: Direct Cost-Outbound
i. Follow the path: CostDirect
Management > Indirect Cost Accounting Policies Setup/Ledger Integration
Policies SetupIndirect
> Costing Sheets
Overhead Cost-Stocked Material
Overhead Cost-Purchase Material
Overhead Cost-Production
Overhead Cost-Offloading

ii. Click on Root Node

iii. Click on New to create
iv. Select the Node type as ‘Total’
v. Give the Code as ‘Cost-Manufac’
vi. Give the Description as ‘Cost Of Manufacturing’

vii. Set the Setup Header to ‘Yes’ and Setup Total to ‘Yes’
viii. Now we need to create a Cost Group as ‘Direct Cost – Material’.
ix. Click on the above node and click on ‘New’
x. Select the node type as ‘Total’
xi. Give the code as ‘Direct Cost-Mat’
xii. Give the Description as ‘Direct Cost – Material’

xiii. Now standing on Direct Cost Material, click on new.

xiv. Fill in the node type as ‘Cost Group’
xv. Fill in the code as ‘Direct-Stock-Mat’
xvi. Fill in the Description as ‘Direct Stocked Material Group’

xvii. Correct the Code as ‘Direct-Stock-Mat’

xviii. Select the cost group as ‘Internal Sourcing’
xix. Check the cost group type as ‘Direct Material’
xx. Repeat the steps from xiii – xix to create the cost group ‘Direct Purchase Material Group’

xxi. Repeat the steps from viii – xix to create the Production group
xxii. Repeat the steps from viii – xix to create the Outsourced (Outbound) cost group
xxiii. Now we need create the Indirect Cost Group
xxiv. For the Total Header, follow the steps from viii – xii.

xxv. Now under the Overhead Total group we need to create four different type of overhead cost as
xxvi. For creation of Overhead on the material (both internal and External) the NODE Type will be
Surcharge and for the overhead on Production or Offloading we can use the NODE Type as
xxvii. Create a cost group as ‘Over-Head-Stocked Material’
xxviii. Now we need to add a calculation group for each overhead.
xxix. Standing on the newly added cost group click on new
xxx. Select Surcharge in the node type (As we are configuring the overhead for material).
xxxi. Fill in the appropriate Code and Description.

xxxii. For each calculation sheet, we need to fill in certain details in the fast tabs.

a. Check the Subtype
b. Change the ‘Per Item’ to Yes if we want to apply per item basis or on overall cost
