Machine and Labor cost calculation in Sage X3

In Sage X3, we may
come across a scenario where we need to calculate machine and labor time for
the specific release quantity on basis of time, cost for machine and labor will
be calculated.

Navigate to -> Manufacturing -> Technical Data -> Standard Operation

Standard Operation
  • Here we have entered setup and run time for machine is
    2 & 3 hours respectively.
  • And we have entered setup and operational time for
    labor is 2 & 5 hours respectively.
  • There is no impact of preparation, wait time
    and post operation time on cost calculation.
Routing Management Decalration
Routing Management
  • We need to map standard operation in routing
    management so that it can invoke the details (Work centers, operational
    timings, etc) in routing management.
  • Routing code is tagged with finished good
    product so it will be directly inherited in work order and calculation will be
    as per standard operation.
Machine calculation in hours

  • Now for a completed work order for release
    quantity 6, calculation will be as follows.
  • Machine:

Declaration in standard

Setup Time: 2

Run Time: 3 hours
/ UN

Calculation for work

Setup Time: 2

Run Time:  3 Hours / UN * 6(release Quantity) = 18 Hours
(Total for work Order)

Labor operational time calculation
Labor operational calculation

Setup Time: 2

Operation Time: 5
hours / UN

Calculation for work

Setup Time:

2 hours (Machine Setup Time) * 3 hours (labour Setup Time) = 6 Hours

Operational Time:

 3 Hours (Machine Run
Time) * 6 (release Quantity) * 5 Hours (Operational Time) = 90 Hours (Total for
work Order)

  • On basis of calculated time, final cost will be
