Assembled item

An assembled item is an article that consists of multiple parts.

You can add assembled items in Profit Order management and Profit Subscriptions. In Profit Projecten, you only have this option in combination with Profit Order management and/or Profit Subscriptions.

Description

Example: 

A good example of an assembled item is a table. A table consists of a top and a number of legs.

In Profit Order management, you can enter the following three types of assembled items:

  • Assembly

    An assembled item of this type is itself an article in stock. An assembly consists of a number of other articles that you may have in stock. Profit registers the articles that are used as parts in an assembly as ‘consumed’.

  • Explosion

    Profit does not track the stock for this type of assembled item. The parts are articles with stock that is normally registered in the sales process.

  • Product

    For an assembled item of this type you can specify whether you want to track the stock or not. Profit then only tracks the stock at the level of the assembled item of the Product type. Profit does not track the stock of the parts of the assembled item of the Product type. You can however, track the stock of these parts (articles) via manual stock entries such as enter stock, etc.

Assembled item with fixed and variable costs

In an assembled item, you can include articles with both fixed and variable costs. You can set this up by adding the Fixed quantity check box to the entry layout of assembled items of the Explosion type.

Example: Assembled item with fixed and variable costs

Assembled item X consists of article 6000, Instelkosten, and article 8200, Machine-uren. The setup costs remain the same irrespective of the quantity of the assembled item (these are therefore fixed costs). The number of machine hours changes depending on the quantity of the assembled item, thus they are variable costs.

Preparation

  • Configuration

Procedure

  • Add an 'assembly' assembled item

    You add an assembled item of the Production type. You track the stock of both the assembled item and its components (articles). Profit registers any articles that are used as parts in an assembly as ‘consumed’.

  • Add an 'explosion' assembled item

    You can add an assembled item of the Explosion type for which the stock is not tracked. The parts are registered in the sales process.

  • Add a 'product' assembled item

    You can add an assembled item of the Product type. In Product, you specify whether you want to track the stock or not. If so, Profit only tracks the stock at the level of the assembled item of the Product type. Profit does not track the stock of the parts of the assembled item of the Product type. You can however, track the stock of these parts (articles) via the manual stock entries such as enter stock, etc.

  • Replace a part in an assembled item

    An assembled item is an article that consists of multiple parts. You can easily replace one part by another in all assembled items in which the part in question is used.

  • Copy an assembled item

    It is simple to copy an assembled item. Before you perform the copy action, you specify if you also want to copy the prices/discounts of the source assembled item.

  • View an article in an assembled item

    In the Compositions including parts view, you can filter on a specific article after which you only see the assembled items which include the article in question as a part.

  • Assembled item with a serial number/lot number

    You can create lot numbers for the assembled articles. Please note that both the assembled item and the parts can have a lot number.

  • Automatically determine the fixed settlement price

    You can determine the fixed settlement price automatically based on the parts in the assembled item.

  • Import an assembled item

    You can import assembled items. This can be useful if you receive the assembly instructions from your business relations.

    You can create an assembled item that is not immediately available for use. An authorised user must first approve this assembled item.

  • Assemble

    You can assemble assembled items. With the assembly, stock for the assembled item is entered and the stock of the parts is written off. Stock entries are made for the entry of the assembled item at the settlement price of the assembled item and for the write off of the parts at their settlement price. Assembly is only possible if there is sufficient stock of the parts.

  • Link an assembled item to a packaging article

    For assembled items, you have the option to link five different packagings per assembled item per unit.

  • An assembled item in a sales order

    When entering a sales order you can specify an assembled item. If you do so, the Assembled item action button is activated. You use this action button to open a sub-entry program in which you can modify the description of the assembled item. You can also retrieve the stock information for the assembled item.
