Within Eralis Job, Direct Material Entry is the primary entry form for materials. This screen is similar to the Direct Time Entry screen as it is a free form entry that allows the user to perform bulk capture and transactions for material items. In this screen, the user can setup default values to enhance data entry, such as a default job or warehouse. For example, if the user is entering transactions for one specific job, the job can be set as default so that it does not have to be manually selected for every line of the transaction.
To enhance the data processing of the data entry, the form contains a large amount of information related to the transactions. However, the grid can still be altered in form settings to personalize the information. Any UDFs (User Defined Fields) that have been added to the job lines table within Eralis Job will be visible on the Direct Material Entry screen.
When an inventory item is processed onto a job, it is moved from the From Warehouse into the Job Costing WIP (Work-in-progress) Warehouse. In this scenario, the standard SAP Business One inventory transfer journal will be created, but there will be no journal processed by Eralis Job. A credit will be applied to the From Warehouse General Ledger account, while a debit will be applied to the WIP General Ledger account. On the other hand, SAP Business One does not see the cost associated with a non-inventory item, meaning that no journal entry will be processed within SAP. However, there will be a journal entry created by Eralis Job. This journal entry will debit the WIP General Ledger account and credit the Clearing/Recovery account. That Clearing/Recovery can be defined by the specific item code or as a default value.
