Topic:   BOM Pricing not updated when part is added

By: GuestPosted on: Mar 10 2016 at 07:20:55 PM
I imported my BOM along with supplier data and costing.

I got a cost of $49 for the assembly. That was too low because didn't add the bare board.

I created a new component for the PCB. Added supplier and cost. If i view all components, it is there.

I then went to the Assembly and Edit BOM. I added the missing part. I did have some difficulty with this. The Save button greyed out. I LOCKED the parts list again. Then the back button. It seems to be there. I also tried unlock/add/lock (save button appears)/save. The part is there. However the price is not updated - it shows as 0.00.

Would you send us an email. We can then maybe exchange some files and figure out what's gone wrong.

Your posts mentions two problems. First I'll answer the one about the difficulty with the greyed out/disabled 'Save' button.

When you go to edit the assembly you see the 'insert' button in the bottom right corner of the editor window.

When you click the button the lower half of the window splits allowing you to select items to insert into the assembly. At this point the Save Button is greyed/disabled. When you are finished inserting items click the 'Done' button. The Split window goes away and you can view the whole assembly and the save Button now is enabled and you can save the assembly.

Your question about the cost of items showing in the assembly.

I've tested this every which way and can't make it fail.

I wonder if you're being confused by Supplier/Vendor cost.

If working with assemblies where you want to see build cost then you must access the list of assemblies via the 'Assemblies' button in the main menu.

If you access your assembly by searching for it in the inventory/components list then be aware that the components list shows Supplier/Vendor costs. Not build costs. This is useful if your assembly can be built in-house but also purchased outside from a vendor or subcontractor.

If you view assemblies in the components list then it will show vendor cost. If the assembly does not have an outside vendor then the cost will of course be zero.

To see the build cost just view assemblies in the assemblies list.

I am past this issue.. Thank you.

For what it is worth, I am using SQL database. I doubt that is an issue.

It seems that I must have been going through different paths than you..

There was a problem is an older version of the software where if you edited an assembly, saved and then went back to the list of assemblies the build cost had not changed. In fact the cost in the database was updated correctly. But the display didn't refresh immediatly. Clicking the refresh button did update the cost.

It has been improved in newer versions of the software.

You said that you're "Past the issue" does that mean you no longer have that problem?

I currently have the same problem. I have removed a subassembly from an assembly and the build cost does not update.

In addition, when I select the main assembly and select multi level BOM list, the bottom price varies by 22 over 4500 when I select single level BOM list!!!

Can you please help!

Hello Stephen. We're currently looking at the database you sent and will get back to you shortly.

In your email you didn't mention the difference in cost between single and multilevel bom. We'll check that and let you know.

In the meantime if you believe the costs are wrong please go to the menu
Tools>Database Utilities>CheckResync
