Activating Auto Assembly and Auto-Disassembly
To save you some time when selling your assembled products, you can have these assembled automatically via an Auto-Assembly. This is useful for users who have assembled products with a set range of components, i.e. a gift basket that always has wine, chocolates and candles.
Save time 'breaking down' stock received from your supplier via the Auto-Disassembly feature. When you have 'receipt' an Auto-Disassembled product on your Purchase Order, then an Auto-Disassembly will be automatically created & completed for this product. This will quickly 'breakdown' this product to its component products.
Using Auto Assembly
The following is an example of how you can use Auto Assembly.
- Whenever you sell an Assembled product it automatically assembles it for you—if there is not enough in stock (presuming you have the relevant components in stock). As a result, this removes all the hassle of having to assemble products manually, which provides more accuracy.
- This feature also calculates automatically —how much of the Assembled product you could potentially assemble and shows this as "Available Qty." on the Sales Order entry page.
For example, even though we have 0 qty on hand it will show as 20 available when entering the order because we have enough components in stock to assemble 20.
The assembled product "ANIMAL" has 0 stock available.
- Once you have successfully entered all your lines on an order (including your yet-to-be-assembled products) you can go ahead and click Complete.
If your Assembled Product is also Batch/Serial tracked, then completing the Assembly will Automatically Assign the new Batch/Serial Numbers to the Sales Order Line.
You have the option to complete the assembly independently from within the Sales Order by using the Order menu or using the (action cog) for the line.
This is where Unleashed does all the work for you assembling the products behind the scenes. An assembly is created and completed for the relevant quantities and all your stock levels are updated accordingly.
- A full audit trail of all assemblies and sales is made so when you are enquiring, you can see exactly what has happened.
