This module is an extension of the Bill of Materials (BOM) module. It separates the manufacturing process into time periods where items being manufactured are transferred into Work In Progress and then into Finished Goods. In addition this module allows you to:
• See a full audit trail of each manufacturing process.
• Draw stock at the beginning of the manufacturing process, and reverse any unused stock once complete.
• Change a BOM without affecting an ongoing manufacturing process that uses the same BOM.
• Replace components in an existing process and continue manufacturing with the new components.
• Create by-products in addition to your main manufactured item.
• Forward plan with the material requirements feature.
