Completing a Production Job achieves two things:
Within the Production Job, you should enter the actual quantity of ingredients or components used for producing a product. You may, for instance, have used more components than initially planned or there may be wastage of ingredients to be accounted for.
By entering the exact quantity of ingredients used, the cost of the additional quantity of ingredients used for producing a product is automatically included in the final cost of your finished product. The ensures both accuracy of inventory, and that your products are costed accurately.
To complete a Production Job:
In the Products List Page, you can inspect production cost of each product by click on a value in the SOH column.
If non-stock items, for instance water or labour, are applied to a Production Job, the cost of these components will be included in the cost of the product. However please note that the cost of these specific items are excluded from the COGS that are ultimately passed to your accounting sofware.
It is very important to complete a production job in one go. Allowing Production Jobs to be left half complete will receipt out component items, but no finished items will be receipted back in - this will cause discrepancies with the SOH value in Cin7 and your accounting Software.
If this causes operational problems, you could consider making sub-components first, and using those sub-components in a Production Job for the finished item. This will allow you to complete Production Jobs, but make the finished product in stages.
We really appreciate your feedback.
