Is there any news on updates?

Average costings, more items on reports (Build start & end dates / Project reference on GRN note etc).

Hello all,
I'm only a couple of hours into evaluating the MiniMRP package. I've built up a small Components data base, and a trial BOM. I now want to print off the BOM for distribution to a PCB line and for the life of me can't figure out how.
Thanks in advance

Apologies for screwing up the existing thread.

Never mind, found it.

Can we please get an update on this? It is a critical issue - you have added the feature to update part prices when goods are received (which is required) without ensuring that a mechanism exists to see the average value of stock - i.e. when using this feature you are increasing / decreases the value of stock on hand, which is wrong!

You advised you were looking at adding this in the summer, and then advised you had done it, but not yet added.

Please let us know what is planned.

Seems lots get added to the Todo list, but no plans real plan to implement these things, and no way to know if it's already been done, without keep asking.

I am going to assume that this is not happening, real shame, we will have to look at other solutions, as this is a really important requirement.

We turned the auto update feature off for this reason. We have to update manually, if we think it should be updated. Otherwise if we buy a small quantity of something at a high price, anything we had in stock when we set to the higher cost - and the other way round also. Moving avergae is best for us.

Rolling average is all well and good but I'd like to take it even further.

In the current version if I look at the cost of items in a BOM those costs have a direct relationship to what I see as the current item price. I can look at the item price in the detail tab and even look up the last PO if I want to and I can see where the price in the BOM comes from.

If the BOM showed an average then that average would not be the same as the last PO. Or any PO for that matter. I'd have to trust the system completely - or spend hours checking how the average cost has been calculated.

But I can see how average would help if I'm building something from materials that I have on hand then the rolling average, in other words the average cost of the items I'm going to use, would give me a more accurate build cost of the product I'm building.

But. Here's the "But". If I am quoting a customer for a future build then the historic cost of components, average or otherwise, is of no interest to me. In the past the cost of items may have been lower. If I quote a future build based on historic prices I could be quoting too low and make basically quote away any profit. (or quote too high and loss the contract)

For preparing quotes to customers I need to know what the cost of the components is going to be at the time I need them. Obviously there's no crystal ball to see future prices in any system. So. For quoting the most accurate is the build cost using the most recent purchase cost

So. If this average cost thing is implemented I'd still need a button to toggle it of when I'm preparing quotes.

I agree, i think as said before, we just need a BOM & stock valuation report that shows both standard and average, (in an ideal world, last price would be good)for each component and then obviously summed.

My main need is stock on hand average price - becuase of the issue when updating standard prices automatically. As stated above, this does not really have any use when it comes to costing a build for the future, but it is a guide.

As long as we can see the information, we can then make a decision what to do with it, at the moment it's just no available.
