Job Costing allows for better planning. Regardless of whether you are manufacturing bulk items, making specific products to order, or repairing or servicing items, having Jobs can assist with the allocation of the resources required.
By linking Sales Orders to a Job and bring in the associated raw materials from a BOM, the relevant stock items are updated so that delays created by stock shortages can be alleviated by the timeous placing of Purchase Orders against Suppliers. The use of user-definable dates on Jobs provides control over the start date, end date and progress points of the Job’s life cycle. Adding Communications to Jobs provides the ability to set follow-up dates to Suppliers for Outwork and to staff to check progress.
