You can associate specific component items and by-product items with each product item. This is helpful for visibility, for example if both your components and products are serialized: you can view which Serial #s from which component items went into making which product item with which Serial #.
You can assign components any time before you Finish Building the kit.
To assign component items to products:
- From the Add or Edit Kit page, check the checkbox to the left of one item from the Items to Produce table.
- Next, check the checkbox to the left of one or more items from the Component Items and By-Product Items tables. These should be the particular components that are being used to make the selected product, or the by-products that are created as a result of making the selected product.
- From the toolbar of the Items to Produce table, select Assign Components.
- The screen refreshes, and the components and by-products are assigned to that product. In the Component Items and By-Product Items tables, the new columns Product Line # and Product Serial # display the line number and serial number of the product item to which that component is assigned. (If you do not see the Product Line # and Product Serial # columns, you may need to customize them onto your page.)
