Kitting / Auto assembly & Multi-level bill of materials.

Kitting/ Auto assembly feature now available in DEAR Inventory. Kitting or Auto assembly can be set for products with a Bill of Materials. At the time of sale these product will be automatically ‘assembled’ and will include all items that form the kit.
In a manufacturing scenario the bill of materials with auto-assembly flag will be used to create a ‘parts list’ for a work order. When you create a work order, you are preparing to produce a product. The ‘parts list’ indicates the material and quantity that you will need. Bill of materials may contain sub-assemblies that in turn have auto-assembly flag set and system will also let you expand sub-assemblies and see components they are made of.
Kit products can be sold online and the system will assemble them automatically given you have sufficient stock of components the kit consists of.
New report is coming to show BOM structures for not auto-assembled products.
