Jim2® Business Engine Help File

The Cost tab depends on the selling price calculation as to what cost it picks up. For example, using List - Percent it will pick up either the vendor estimated cost or last cost, depending on the most recent date.

 

So, if the selling price calculation is Last Cost or List, it will pick up either Last Cost or Estimated Cost (most recent). If the selling price is Avg Cost plus it will pick up Avg COGS etc.

 

If the Vendor tab on the stock record is being regularly updated, it will use that cost – it may be worthwhile investigating eBusiness Connect to automate this process. Contact support@happen.biz for more information.

 

The Cost tab shows the expected cost of the stock being quoted, and the related vendor/supplier. The information is automatically added to this tab from the Vendor tab on the stock code (if populated) as stock is added to the quote.

Info

Note: If Multi-company is in use, costs are calculated from the cost of stock across all companies.

 

Price calculation method

Jim2 matches the price level (see Pricing tab in stock) with the current customer. If Jim2 finds a price level match, it will look at the Price Calc Method:

If Price Calc Method is Avg COGS + Markup or Avg COGS + Margin, Jim2 will get the Average COG Value.

If Price Calc Method is Max COGS + Markup or Max COGS + Margin, Jim2 will get the Max COG Value

If Price Calc Method is Est. Cost + Markup or Est. Cost + Margin, Jim2 will get the Vendor Estimated Cost (from the Vendors tab on the stock record).

 

All other values for Price Calc Method mean that Jim2 will get the Last COG Value.
