    Application Changes
    1
    Project Accounting
    EAM’s Cost Analysis captures the total cost associated to a project broken down by material, contractor, and labor. Cost Analysis has been further enhanced so that an activity code can be associated at each job level. An activity is a user-defined code that can represent a more descriptive type of cost, such as travel expenses or administrative cost. This allows greater granularity in cost tracking. All activities can be reported on individually, so that, for example, aggregate travel expenses or administrative costs for a project can be analyzed.
    In addition, two other cost fields have been added: Labor Burden and AP Variance.
    2
    Request for Quotation (RFQ) Module
    The new RFQ module provides a tool for the MRO buyer to process quotes to multiple suppliers. Bid price, bid price expiration date, quantity, delivery date is some of the information captured in the RFQ module. If a supplier is bidding is located in another country, EAM will convert the supplier price and display it in the base currency set for the system.
    If there are multiple suppliers and the buyer wants to split the bid, this can be done by indicating the quantities to award to each supplier that will fulfill the requirement for the quote. Splitting a bid may be required if one supplier doesn’t have the required quantity by the expected delivery date, for example.
    A purchase requisition is not required to create a quote.
    In the stock replenishment module, a user can create a quote, pulling in all line item details and populates the quote directly into the quote module.

    Descriptors
    Descriptors are user-configurable fields that can be associated with equipment and/or inventory records. The type of field (text, decimal, date), its length, field label, and order are all user-configurable.
    Descriptors are printable. There is now an option to include them with the Work Order and Purchase Order documents.
