Rollup cost calculation for Fixed Labor vs Variable Labor

Accepted answer


We'd like to understand the difference in Cost Rollup formula for Fixed Labor vs Variable Labor

Content (please ensure you mask any confidential information):

For example: on Work Definition for Item A: (Production Lot size quantity is 50 EA on PIM. See screenshot)

Operation 1: Fixed Labor is 4 Hours    

Operation 2: Variable Labor is 2 hours

The labor rate is $30 for both operations.

As per our test: the calculated roll up labor cost in standard cost for Item A is (4hrs X 30 + 2hrs X30 =$180)

Our expectation is ((4hrs/50EA X 30 + 2hrs X30 =$84). The Fixed labor hours should be divided by Production Lot Size quantity for Unit Standard cost calculation.

Howdy, Stranger!
