Simple, effective, jobcards, can be used
multiple times, without mixing periods.

See complete vehicle history on only
one jobcard. Open once, use forever.
Used for other purposes, such as m/f costing.

Bring Bill of Material from inventory to
jobcard, exploding items as it does so.
Take Bill of Material from jobcard to
inventory, allocating job cost to BoM.
Take single item from jobcard with BoM, to
inventory, allocating job cost to single item.

Buy out items direct to the jobcard.
Allocate items direct from inventory to jobcard.
Allocate labour items directly to jobcard.
Jobcard retains all costs as current, until
invoiced or returned, when cost moves to
"cost of goods sold", or inventory.

Any changes when invoicing
leave the jobcard unaltered, so
you can see outstanding values, or
any items deleted off the invoice.

In FMCG mode, a jobcard is used as
a vehicle, all orders being posted
to a vehicle, and transferable.

In Trucker mode, the jobcard is used
as a vehicle, all costs are allocated
against it, so well as fuel, kilometres,
etc, so jobcard becomes the cost centre.

In default mode, jobcards are used from
the auto industry, to manufacturing,
to dental laboratories, to contracting,
to keep track of costs per job.

Memo pad for greater explanation for customer.
What a job IS depends on the industry, but
this system is versatile, and effective.
