Kit Master Maintenance

×

The Kit Maintenance option allows you to design and maintain kit structures. A kit is essentially a flat bill of material that maintains single level relationships between a parent item and a group of components. This option can be useful to businesses that assemble end items from purchased components. Kits may be ordered through the Order Entry option in the Progression Order Entry package. You are allowed to adjust kit pricing, and you may print components on order acknowledgments, quotes, and invoices.

If the Rollup Price? check box in the Item Master file is activated for the kit item, Progression calculates the kit’s price as the total of the components’ prices. If the Rollup Price? check box is not activated, Progression

If the Price Rollup field in the item Master file is set to No for the kit item, Progression takes the kit’s price from the O/E Price Code file, if there is an appropriate price code on file. If there is not an appropriate code on file, Progression takes the price from the Selling Price field in the Item/Location file.

If the Price Rollup field in the item Master file is set to Yes for the kit item, Progression calculates the kit's price from the sum of the component pieces.

If the Price Rollup field is set to Include Parent for the kit item, Progression calculates the kit's price by adding the sum of the component pieces to the default price for the parent item.

If the Price Rollup field is set to Rolled Opt/Cost for the kit item, Progression takes the kit’s price from the O/E Price Code file, if there is an appropriate price code on file. If there is not an appropriate code on file, Progression takes the price from the Selling Price field in the Item/Location file. When you select this method, the Cost Rollup field sets to Yes to roll up the component items' costs, but you can override it.

If the Rollup Cost? check box in the Item Master file is activated for the kit item, Progression calculates the kit’s cost as the total of the components’ costs. If the Rollup Cost? check box is not activated, Progression calculates the kit’s cost from the cost fields in the Item/Location file.

If the Cost Rollup field in the Item Master file is set to No for the kit item, Progression takes the cost of the kit from the parent item's cost fields in the Item/Location file.

If the Cost Rollup field in the Item Master file is set to Yes for the kit item, Progression takes the cost of the kit from the sum of the costs of the component pieces.

If the Cost Rollup field in the Item Master file is set to Include Parent for the kit item, Progression takes the cost of the kit from the sum of the cost of the component pieces and adding the parent item’s cost.

Progression does not allow you to make changes to kit component quantities, or to add or delete components during Order Entry in Progression Order Entry.

Kits may be made available at locations other than the default location contained in the Item Master file by adding locations in the Item/Location Maintenance option. When setting up alternate locations, be sure that all components of the kit are also available in those locations.

Kit items may not be components of other kits, of feature items, or of product structures. However, you can use kit component items as components of other kits, product structures, or feature items.
