Lines – Inputs

The following fields are displayed when the Inputs option is selected in the upper panel.

Line No

The line number is used to sort components on the job traveler and on screens and reports.  When you add new lines, the program automatically assigns the line number in increments of ‘10’.  You can override this value, and blanks and duplicates are allowed.    

Sequence

This is the job routing sequence within which this line item gets consumed.  The line item will print within this sequence on the job traveler.  Sequence assignment also enables job materials and components to be selectively issued by work center in the Job Issues screen.  

NOTE: When you add a new line, the sequence assigned to the previous line is automatically selected by default.

Work Center

This read-only field displays the work center associated with this job routing sequence, for reference purposes.    

Line Type

From the drop down list, select ‘Stock’ to select a stock item in the Reference ID field and ‘Descriptor’ to select a descriptor.  When you click the New Line button, ‘Stock’ is selected by default.  

NOTE: When the line gets generated from a subcontract service routing Sequence, the program assigns a line type of ‘Freeform’.  

Reference ID

The value in this field varies according to Line Type.

Stock Item

This is the stock item’s estimated cost as of the time the job line was created.
