As part of a Distribution model, Manufacturer is a critical attribute for the management of costing and pricing. For this implementation, Manufacturer is equal to Supplier, and all materials are lot tracked, so the Manufacturer will be assigned by Lot. At Quote and Sales Order entry, the manufacturer drives pricing, and also allows computation of a gross margin based on the available lots. A dashboard of information was added to the List grid tab of both the Quote and the Sales Order, containing information pertaining to Manufacturer and available lots. If the gross margin percent drops below a specified (in the company master) level, and the logic to calculate and warn when the limits are met is enabled (also defined in the company master), a message is displayed either at line save, or on set of Ready to Process, warning the Sales Person of the limit and asking for confirmation to continue. In this way, information is available as required to manage pricing and margin.
