ALCiE Job Costing

Part of the ALCiE Manufacturing product line.

ALCiE combines Job Cost, Shop Floor Control, and Routings into a powerful integrated System. User-friendly input screens enable you to easily enter and track labor hours, labor dollars, fixed burden, variable burden, material units, and material costs. Actual data may be compared to your plan. You may have many shop orders charged to a single job, and each shop order may have virtually unlimited operations. Material may be attached to a given shop operation. Labor input is tied to the ALCiE Payroll System, which means you only enter transactions once to produce both job cost and payroll reports. Fixed and variable burdens may be also calculated based on user-defined variables. Material input is equally as simple. Planned materials may be input from a copy of a bill of materials, or manually. You may also automatically issue material based on the shop order's bill of materials, or issue items individually from your requisition form. A purchase requisition report is automatically produced for out of stock and non-stocked items when the shop order is released.
