How to calculate cost on a work order based on its custom BOM

Paragon allows you to modify the BOM (bill of materials) of a product on specific transactions. This can be useful when a customer would like to have a product customized or changed. Here, we’ll walk you through on how to update the price of your work order once you modify the cost of a material (or materials) in the custom BOM of the product.

Step 1: Go to My Company

From any screen in Paragon, hit the settings button in the top right corner of the screen.

This brings you to the settings screen. From here, hit my company under the system card.

Step 2: Go to the Financials tab

By default, you are brought to the summary tab. Hit the Financials tab in the top right side of the screen.

Once you are on the financials screen, hit the edit button. Now, you will have the option on how you would like your work order to be priced. If you would like the cost of the work order to be based on the custom BOM, check the corresponding box. Otherwise, make sure that it is unchecked.

 

Step 3: Go to the work order module

If you decided that you would like your work order to be based on its custom BOM, you must also ensure that you have followed the right steps in the work order module. Next, go to the work order module to edit a transaction.

Step 4: Edit your custom BOM

Once you are in the work order module, select the work order you would like to update. To update the custom BOM of a line item, right click the line and hit edit custom BOM.

To update the cost of one of the materials in the custom BOM, highlight the current cost and type in the new cost. In the example below, the red thread’s cost has been changed from $1.00 to $2.00. Once you have updated the material’s cost, make sure that you check the box next to update the cost on the work order line at the bottom of the modal.

Step 5: Save your changes

To save your changes, hit the accept button.

Note: The total price of the work order won’t update immediately. To see the updated price, hit the save button in the bottom right corner of the screen.
