    Calculations

     

    How are Case Type components calculated?

    Case type components are typically items that are inserted inside a master case. (Screen shot for this so we can circle it because it is named different things) Case types that are required for an order are calculated by dividing the container count by the “Case Type Per Master Case”. This may not be labeled the same in your system as this item can be modified during your initial Virtual Office setup process. Refer to the image to relative input positioning (it will always be the second input box down from the dropdown for “MFG/EXP Type”).

    Example: 

    Container Count: 10,000
    Case Type Per Master Case: 12
    Applied Formula: 10,000 / 12 = 834 (rounded up)

     

    How are Master Case Type components calculated?

    Master Case type components are typically items that are inserted inside a master case. (Screen shot for this so we can circle it because it is named different things) Master Case types that are required for an order are calculated by dividing the Container Count by the “Case Type Per Master Case”. Then divide the quotient by the “Master Cases Per Pallet”. This may not be labeled the same in your system as this item can be modified during your initial Virtual Office setup process. Refer to the image to relative input positioning (it will always be the third input box down from the dropdown for “MFG/EXP Type”).

    Example: 

    Container Count: 10,000
    Case Type Per Master Case: 12
    Master Cases Per Pallet: 135
    Applied Formula: (10,000 / 12) / 135 = 7 (rounded up)

     

    Acronyms

    BPR = Batch Production Record
    ETA = Estimated Time of Arrival
    PR = Production Record
    MMR = Master Manufacturing Record
    PO = Purchase Order
    LPN = License Plate Number
    QA = Quality Assurance

     

    Grid Sorting Options

    There are several ways in which you can sort the grid in order to find specific results fast. If you know the name of the item you are searching for then using the Search Box will be your best bet.

    You can also sort grid results by clicking the Column Titles. In doing so you will change the sort results per the column from high to low; click again to sort the opposite. See example image below.

     

    Grid Sorting

     

     

    Column Visibility

    Column Visibility will allow you to toggle on/off columns on the grid. Start by clicking the Column Visibility action button located above the grid. In the next window you will select columns to hide/show from the grid. Column buttons that are blue are visible on the grid and Column buttons that are gray will be hidden. See example image below.

     

    Column Visibility

     

    Please note that the columns you decide to hide will remain hidden until you re-select them for visibility. This setting is stored/saved per the browser used while selecting Column Visibility.

     

    Grid Nesting

    In the event you are using the website with a small monitor or lower resolution the grid will nest column elements into each row. This is indicated by a green plus icon at the furthest left point on each row. Click the plus icon to reveal the additional columns and their info. See example image below. We recommend using the website with a minimum monitor size of 20″ with a 1920 x 1080 resolution.

    Grid nesting will sometimes be available regardless of screen size and in this event the grid nesting will contain/display for information.
