Workshop Order (Part 2) Actual Costs to Finish

NOTE: This document assumes you have an existing Workshop Order with Budgeted Costs in Completed Status and Actual Costs have been integrated to the workshop order from CMiC.  (If you have not yet entered your workshop order and completed the service/repair please use the Workshop Order Part 1 Budgeted Costs to Service Completion document.) 

Whether your Workshop Order is Billable to a Project or is Non Billable costs to be absorbed by Yard OH the Actual Costs come into the Workshop Order via CMiC.  

This is done one of 3 ways:  

  • CMiC Timecard:  When a timecard is entered into CMiC time/costs spent on a workshop order can be applied to that workshop order by using the Equipment WO field and selecting the workshop order number. Once Timecards are posted in CMiC these transactions will then integrate over to the Rental Results Workshop Order as an actual cost line(s). 
  • CMiC Accounts Payable/Imaging:  When an invoice comes into imaging and is directed to the “coder” AP costs associated with a workshop order can be coded to that workshop order by using the Equipment WO field and selecting the workshop order number.  Whoever is coding invoices will need to know the workshop order number to apply the AP actual Cost against.  Once AP invoice is posted in CMiC  these transactions will then integrate over to the Rental Results Workshop Order as an actual cost line(s). 
  • CMiC Job Cost:  When a workshop order cost has come in using either of the above two (2) methods and was inadvertently not applied or coded to the workshop order.  Your financial manager can do a JC Journal entry to move the cost out of the phase/category and move it back into the phase/category/Equipment WO.  Once the Journal entry has posted, this transaction will then integrate over to the Rental Results Workshop Order as an actual cost line(s). This document walks you through allocation of Actual Costs after integration to Finishing (and closing) the Workshop Order in Rental Results.
