Maintain product cost and profitability information at the branch and plant level and allow for different costs at different locations for identically manufactured products. You can calculate costs both by and across locations, analyse costs at the local and divisional level, compare costs between locations and consolidate costs by product group and manufacturing location.

Track intercompany margin and transfer prices.

Generate and evaluate Manufacturing Budgets. Budget management enables you to set up strategic cost and profit management procedures and move from the extrapolation of historical data to scenario based forward planning. You can create both departmental and product mix driven forecasts and using sales projections, forecast price changes and the planned availability of activities and resources, create rolling and fixed period projections of your company's financial requirements.
