How do you enable Production?
You can enable Production from Settings | Company and then press the Enable Production button. You can activate it by scrolling down and then checking the Production tick box from this Features page.
An Assembled Product is a product that will be created by combining quantities of component products as directed by the Bill of Materials.
It will automatically create an assembly linked to a product on an order, when there is not enough stock on hand available to complete the auto assembly request.
Regardless of the allocation, de-allocate the assembly is created.
Add a product as you normally would, see Add New in the Inventory module. However, you will also need to make sure that you enable Assemble Product, Can Auto Assembled or Component Product ticked in the check-box.
A Bill of Materials is a list of the raw materials, (products or component parts) and the quantities of each needed to manufacture an end product.
Yes, you can either clone an existing BOM or use the BOM Import template to create multiple BOM’s at once.
The BOM Import Template: Production > Import Bill Of Materials > Click on Template Link
The value of the assembled product, also considered the cost of an assembly, is calculated by totaling the average landed cost of the components outlined on the Bill of Materials.
You can only delete a Bill of Materials before it has been used on an assembly. After that, it cannot be deleted.
This usually occurs when there is not enough stock on hand available against your components to complete the assembly request.
At this stage once the assembly is completed, it cannot be undone. However, there are a few workarounds;
- Create a second assembly to reverse this.
This works well if you are purchasing in bulk and then splitting it into smaller quantities.
A second assembly can put this back to the bulk quantity. This would not work for all scenarios —especially if you have multiple components.
- Create a Stock adjustment.
You can create a stock adjustment, to adjust out the assembled items and then make an adjustment in for each of the components. This will send a stock journal to your account and would not be required.
