  • 44H9/PH: Phase Extended Data

  • 44H9/PL: Plan Extended Data

  • 44H9/SL: Sale Extended Data

3.2 Understanding Next Numbers

The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Homebuilder Management system uses the next numbers feature to assign numbers to records and documents. You set up next numbers for individual systems in the Next Numbers program (P0002).

See "Setting Up Next Numbers" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications Financial Management Fundamentals Implemenation Guide.

This table lists the next numbers that you should verify are set up before you process information:

System Usage
44H4

Homebuilder Option

Workfile
44H6

Homebuilder Purchasing

Workfile job number
44H7

Homebuilder Construction

  • Lot Start 1 PID (used in workfile generation)
  • Lot Start 2 PID (used in commitment generation)

  • Link Record Key ID (used in extra purchase order processing)

  • Manual PO Original Number


3.3 Setting Up Constants and Commitment Document Types

This section provides overviews of constants and commitment document types, lists prerequisites, and discusses how to:

  • Set up constants.

  • Set up commitment document types.

3.3.1 Understanding Constants

Constants are the default settings that the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Homebuilder Management system uses to process requests and run programs. You must set up the constants in the Homebuilder Constants program (P44H001) before you perform any processes. Do not change the constants after you begin entering transactions in the production environment.

The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Homebuilder Management system constants are company-specific. If you do not require individual values for each company, the system uses the values for the default company, 00000.

3.3.2 Understanding Commitment Document Types

Set up commitment document types to indicate the from and to document types that the system uses during commitment generation. The program you use to generate commitments will indicate the beginning order type to the ending order type. For example, when you start with a base agreement contract (BC order type) and then you generate commitments, the system changes the bid to a subcontract (OS order type).

3.3.3 Prerequisites

Before you complete the tasks in this section, you must:

  • Set up the branch/plant constants for each area.

  • Set up business unit types for communities and lots.

  • Set up document types in UDC 00/DT for bids, takeoffs, and closing documents.

3.4 Setting Up Activity Rules

This section provides an overview of activity rules, lists prerequisites, and discusses how to:

  • Set processing options for Homebuilder Activity Rules (P44H002).

  • Set up activity rules.

3.4.1 Understanding Activity Rules

To manage sales and construction activities within your business, you can set up activity rules to allow specific activities and to control the sequence of the activities. Activity rules also determine which records are written to the Lot Sales History (F44H501H) and Lot Master History (F44H201H) tables. Events that might create sales-related historical entries include entering a new sale, canceling a sale, and releasing options through the Lot Start process.

Activity rules enable you to:

  • Support key business functions.

  • Add and update information, based on activity rule changes and special processing.

  • Manually change both lot and sale statuses to new activity rules.

  • Control processes such as:

    • Releasing a lot for sale.

    • Adding a new buyer.

    • Canceling a sale.

    • Transferring a sale.

Activity rules can be further classified by:

  • Rule types in UDC 44H0/RT.

    Rule types enable you to customize activity rules by logical groupings of lots, such as geographic area or operating division, and to create multiple activity rule templates. The Community Phase Master table (F44H101) stores the Homebuilder Activity Rule Type (HBRLTP) that is the activity rule template for the community.

  • Action types in UDC 44H0/AT.

    Action types identify whether the activity rule is associated with the construction or sales workflow. The action types are:

    C: Construction

    S: Sales

Activity rule codes are set up in UDC 44H0/RL. These codes are hard-coded:

  • 200: Construction Start

  • 450: Construction Complete

  • 500: Released for Sale

  • 600: Sold

  • 900: Closed

The system uses these codes to update values in the Lot Status Code (LSTATHB) field in the Lot Master table (F44H201). The table illustrates that the lot status description, which appears in the Lot Workbench program (P44H200), is based on the relationship between the codes in the LSTATHB field and the corresponding activity rules:

Lot Status Description Lot Status Code (LSTATHB) Activity Rule Condition
Not Available 0 Sales for the last status are less than 500.
Not Sold/Not Started 1
  • Sales for the last status are greater than or equal to 500 and less than 600.
  • Construction for the last status is less than 200.

Not Sold/Started 2
  • Sales for the last status are greater than or equal to 500 and less than 600.
  • Construction for the last status is greater than or equal to 200 and less than 450.

Sold/Not Started 3
  • Sales for the last status are greater than or equal to 600 and less than 900.
  • Construction for the last status is less than 200.

Sold/Started 4
  • Sales for the last status are greater than or equal to 600 and less than 900.
  • Construction for the last status is greater than or equal to 200 and less than 450.

Not Sold/Complete 5
  • Sales for the last status are greater than or equal to 500 and less than 600.
  • Construction for the last status is greater than or equal to 450.

Sold/Complete 6
  • Sales for the last status are greater than or equal to 600 and less than 900.
  • Construction for the last status is greater than or equal to 450.

Closed 9 The sales status is greater than or equal to 900.

3.4.2 Prerequisites

Before you complete the tasks in this section, you must:

  • Set up rule types in UDC 44H0/RT.

  • Set up action types in UDC 44H0/AT.

3.5 Setting Up Extended Data

This section provides an overview of extended data and discusses how to:

  • Set processing options for Extended Data (P44H092).

  • Set up extended data templates.

  • Set up column headings for extended data.

3.5.1 Understanding Extended Data

Occasionally, you may need to download additional information for which no specific fields exist in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Homebuilder Management system. The extended data feature enables you to download and integrate user-defined data with the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Homebuilder Management system.

You can use extended data to:

  • Update specified extended data with line items from templates.

  • Refresh existing data with template changes, such as additions and deletions.

  • Update the Maintain Extended Data Headings form with column heading overrides.

  • Add data items on custom forms and reports.

  • Interface with the closing worksheet.

  • Interface with the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Service Management system.

    Note:

    You must set up extended data if you use the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Service Management system.

    See Setting Up Extended Data to Interface with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Service Management.

Extended data can include dates, amounts, numbers, memos, address book entries, text, and category codes to be used for maintenance and query tasks. You can download additional data that is specific to any of these seven data types on the Select Extended Data Type form:

  • AR: Area

  • CM: Community

  • LT: Lot

  • OP: Option

  • PH: Phase

  • PL: Plan

  • SL: Sales

After you select a data type, you must add an extended data key from the Select Extended Data Key form.

For example, assume that you want to track additional deposit dates and amounts that do not exist in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Homebuilder Management system. You would add a new UDC data key for deposits to the sales data type, SL, and create a new template to track multiple deposit amounts with corresponding dates. Finally, you would identify the data elements that you want to use to track the extended data. To track the deposits, for example, use the Maintain Extended Data Headings form to customize heading descriptions and to exclude data elements that are not required.

3.6 Setting Up Closing Worksheets

This section provides an overview of closing worksheets, list prerequisites, and discusses how to:

  • Set up automatic accounting instructions (AAIs) for closing worksheet templates.

  • Map data to closing worksheets templates.

  • Map extended data to closing worksheets templates.

3.6.1 Understanding Closing Worksheets

When setting up a closing worksheet, you use a standard template to record the closing entries of a house sale at the community level. At escrow closing, the system compiles a closing worksheet based on the specifications of the assigned template and the lot information in the Sales Master (F44H501), Option Master (F44H401), and Closing Worksheet Extended Data Mapping (F44H592) tables.

The system derives the business unit and subledger that are associated with each line item in the closing worksheet. The closing worksheet enables you to:

  • Associate a single closing worksheet template with a particular community or with all communities.

  • Generate a closing journal entry that is based on the closing worksheet.

  • Map extended data to closing worksheet line items.

  • Create revenue budgets.

Use the Closing Worksheet Accounting Instruction program (P44H590) to create the closing worksheet template. Within each line in the template, establish the rules to complete the closing entry. These rules include:

  • Defining the general ledger accounts.

  • Establishing the criteria for deriving the business unit and subledger values.

  • Categorizing the entry as a typical debit or credit.

To provide for items such as warranty accruals, you can enter fixed amounts on lines on the closing worksheet.

3.6.2 Prerequisites

Before you complete the tasks in this section, you must:

  • Determine all accounts and their respective order for the closing journal entry.

  • Modify the closing data items that should have negative amounts.

    In UDC 44H5/CW, enter 1 in the Special Handling field to revise any of the codes that should have a negative amount. When you enter a negative amount in a data item that has 1 in the Special Handling field, the JD Edwards Homebuilder Management system converts the amount to a positive amount.

3.7 Interacting with the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Job Cost System

The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Homebuilder Management system is closely integrated with the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Job Cost system. You can use the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Job Cost system to review, analyze, and manage the profitability of a lot.

Each lot that is created during the Lot Start process in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Homebuilder Management system represents a job in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Job Cost system. The Lot Start process creates accounts for items that are specific to the lot that is to be used in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Job Cost system. The system uses information from the Sales Master table (F44H501) to create revenue budgets for the base house, lot premium, and selected options in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Job Cost system. You use standard ledger types to manage budgets, commitments, actual costs, and projected final costs in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Job Cost system.

If you are converting from JD Edwards World, this table discusses the category codes in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Homebuilder Management that affect the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Job Cost system:

  • Category Code 5: The name of this code has changed from City Code to Area Code.

  • Category Code 15: This code no longer tracks the next sequence number that is assigned at lot start. In the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Homebuilder Management system, you use a new field in the F44H101 table to track information.

  • Category Code 20: This code identifies the elevation for a lot.

  • Category Code 22: This code identifies the plan number for a lot.

  • Category Code 20 and Category Code 22: These codes include code validation in the data dictionary. To eliminate the need to enter all values, consider removing this validation.

3.8 Interacting with the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Service Management System

This section provides an overview of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Service Management integration and discusses how to set up extended data to interface with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Service Management.

3.8.1 Understanding JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Service Management Integration

You can set up the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Homebuilder Management system to create service and warranty records that interface with the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Service Management system. The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Service Management system uses extended data from the lot master to classify the information within the service and warranty records. You must set up the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Service Management system before you create these records.
