Fixed quantity on BOM not calculating correctly in Costing

Hi All,

I have an issue with scaling materials on a BOM. There are 2 materials on the BOM for material A. One of these (material B) is dependent on quantity of material A produced, the other (material C) is fixed.

Current config in BOM for material A:

Material A base quantity: 1kg

Material B quantity on BOM: 1kg (not fixed)

Material C quantity on BOM: 1 EA (fixed)

Ideally what I want is for each kg of material A produced, use 1 kg of material B and use 1 EA of material C per batch regardless of material A quantity.

E.g. Desired result:

To produce 50kg of material A, use 50kg of material B and 1 EA of material C

To produce 200kg of material A, use 200kg of material B and 1 EA of material C


I have ticked the "Fixed Quantity" field for material C in the BOM, however when I run costing it seems to still be scaling up material C despite the "Fixed Quantity" field being ticked.

Can anyone help? Is there additional fields to be populated to get the desired result?

Thanks,

Michael

    Hello

    Are you sure that the same BOM is being used for produciton and costing? It may be also something related to the validity.
