Printing dispatch labels

The dispatch label printing system has been extended such that dispatch
labels can all be printed in one go – like the recent extension to the
goods-in label printing system. From a user perspective this is initiated
by not selecting a line when printing labels – i.e. no selection implies all
lines. Note that labels are only printed if they meet these constraints:
1. The labels haven’t been printed already for a line – use Audit tab in a
dispatch line editor to see what’s been printed previously. 2. The part
being dispatched has the usual dispatch labels option set in the material
record

Costing

The costing algorithm has been replaced by use of the scheduler, resulting in better
estimated costs. When a material is costed, Match-IT selects a batch quantity to
cost based on the material configuration. For example if you have a minimum batch
size or re-order quantity set, Match-IT uses one as appropriate. The resulting cost
is cached in the material record as setup and cycle costs. When you take sales lines
or enquiries for other quantities, the estimated cost is calculated by manipulation
of these values; amortizing the setup cost over the sales quantity etc. Match-IT
allows you to manually cost a material and override the quantity chosen. Please
note that as a result of this change, new builds (later then 21.1.15) will take a
short period of time to ‘settle-in’ – during this time Match-IT will be updating
cached costs as material records are encountered. A cost breakdown is now available
from material records.
