Use production orders to manufacture inventory items

Production orders are used to record manufacture of finished inventory items using existing inventory and other resources. For example, manufacturing bottled fruit juices requires fruits, bottles, and lids purchased from suppliers as inventory items. These inventory items can be converted into the finished products sold to customers.

Note
Finished goods must be created as separate inventory items before they can be entered on production orders.

Adding non-inventory costs

If non-inventory costs, such as wages, consumables, or overhead allocations are required to produce the finished inventory item(s), check the box to Add non-inventory cost into production. Enter accounts to which the costs will be posted and the amounts. Add lines if necessary:

Manager will add the non-inventory costs to the current average cost of inventory item(s) consumed by the production order to calculate the cost of the produced inventory item(s).

In the Inventory Items tab, the quantity of the manufactured inventory item will increase while the quantities of input inventory items will decrease by the quantities included in the production order.
