There are some instances where it is necessary to disassemble products instead of assembling them. The process of disassembly is much the same as creating a standard Production Job.
With disassembly, one product will be removed from the inventory, and in turn inventory of its component parts will be increased.
Just like with a standard production job, a Bill of Materials can be used for this purpose. Remember that only one Bill of Materials can be saved against a product.
Production Jobs that disassemble products are often referred to as Use/Make Production jobs, as you are Using one product to Make other components.
Only enter component products in light blue rows, with the Make label. Entering components on white lines will mean the components are not included in the template. To insert additional light blue lines, click in the Format column and select Insert Row Below.
Once a Production Job has been approved, you will need to complete it in order for the production job to take effect.
To complete a Production Job:
Note the cost of each component is created by dividing the cost of the finished product evenly between the quantity of components.
Because the value of the product you break down is passed evenly the to component items you create, your stock value never changes. This means that no update of your accounts software is required.
We really appreciate your feedback.
