Track finished goods separately from individual inventory
items: When you build an assembly, an assembled unit is automatically
added to quantity on hand, and its component parts (inventory items or other
assembly items) are automatically deducted from quantity on hand. By using
assembly items, you always know how many assembled and component items you
actually have in stock.
Customize the price of assembled items: You can specify a
price for an assembly that's different from the sum of its component
Quick access to information about finished goods: You can
easily access the date that items were assembled, the quantity and cost of
assembled items, and a detailed list of component items.
Set reminders for future builds: You can set a build point,
and QuickBooks will remind you to build finished goods when stock is running
low. At build time, QuickBooks will verify that you have enough component items
in stock to build the specified number of assembly items.
