Production Cost Analysis

Report Summary

Printed Report Title: Production Cost Analysis by Process

This report looks at the planned material consumption vs. the actual material consumption to produce products.  It’s based on the yield of the quantity actually produced and so the numbers may appear to be incorrect when you do not make the exact quantity planned on the PdO.


Plan Quantity: 

The quantity of material needed to make the units that were actually produced.  (BoM Qty / Unit  x  Units actually produced )

This may be different from the original planned quantity that shows on the PdO if you did not make the same number of units the PdO was created for.


Actual Quantity

The material actually consumed to make the finished units that were actually produced.



To produce (1) P0001 the BoM requires (1) C0001 component.

We make a Pdo for (10) units of P0001, which will require (10) C0001 components.


But…We were only able to produce (9) P0001, but we still used (10) C0001.


The report would show:

Plan Qty = 9        We “planned” 9 components to make the 9 units that were actually produced.

Actual Qty = 10   We actually issued 10 components

Variance = (1)     Unfavorable variance of 1 unit more then we should have needed to make 9 produced

    Assuming the quantities are in pounds?
