Bill of Materials Production
Create and run production processes using the previously defined bills of materials.
Unlike the name suggests, this process is not part of production. This set up is used to combine different end products into another bundled product. For example for a computer that is shipped with different keyboards or products that are shipped with different power cables. There is no actual production involved for the creation of the new product.
The set up of this screen is combined with setups in the product screen:
- the bill of materials checkbox is selected for the product
- the bill of materials tab is filled out
Create production processes to run using the previously defined bills of materials.
In this section the organization is selected, a name of the bundling that will be executed, as well as a date on which it will occur.
Add bills of materials to be produced in a specified production plan.
In this section the product is selected and the number that is executed. Optionally the storage bin when the result is stored can be selected.
As indicated in the introduction, the product that is selected needs to be set up correctly first:
- the bill of materials checkbox is selected
- the bill of materials tab is filled out with the information of the components that are combined plus the quantity for each component.
- the Verify Bom button was clicked to set the product ready to be used
Create and edit the products that are going to be used in the production
After the Production Plan tab is filled out, the Create/Process Production button is clicked to generate the information in this section. Based on the set up of the information in the bill of materials tab of the product combined with the production quantity in the production plan tab, the information of the components to be used and which quantity was generated.
After clicking the Create/Process Production button for the second time, the changes are executed. In the popup the checkbox 'Product quantity must be on stock' can be selected, so the process is only executed if the components are in stock. After successfully processing, the stock of the components decreases and the stock of the bundled product increases.
