Building Stock Assemblies
Stock Assembly Items are products that are built from constituent parts, or sub-Items.
These sub-Items are listed in the Bill Of Materials, and each is a Stock Item too.
Building these products affects your stock by:
- Decreasing the Stock of sub-Items listed in the BOM.
- Increasing the Stock of the built product.
How to build Stock Assemblies
While manufacturing a product from stocked items, two things happen to stock levels:
- The amount of raw material (specified in the BOM) in stock decreases.
- The number of built products increases.
Your system has been modelled so that the stock count and stock valuation can be recorded accurately.
The following steps are used to define and build a Stock Assembly Item:
- From the Explorer click Products/Services→Items.
- Click ‘Create New‘ from the Action Bar or the Green ⊕ in the Explorer.
- Click ‘Stock Assembly‘.
- A new Stock Assembly Item Document will be created.
- Fill in the details on the Sales Tab such as Item code, sales price etc.
- From the BOM tab add the required Bill Of Materials. Typically this is composed of either Stock Items or other Stock Assembly Items. You will notice that as you add Items to the BOM the cost on the purchase tab is automatically calculated.
- Once you have added the Bill Of Materials you can save the Item.
You can now build your assemblies; this ensures the stock count is correct.
From the Items ‘Actions’ drop-down click ‘Build Assembly’. This shows the Build Assemblies page which allows you to specify how many Assemblies you want to build.
Building the assembly will adjust the Stock (and Stock Asset Accounts) appropriately.
Once the assemblies have been built you can now sell them in the usual way by placing them on Invoices etc.
