Loving the idea of an assembly module being added. Since you are working on it, I thought maybe I’d give some input as to what is making it a bit lengthy for me with the current method of assembly (exactly the same as what you described in your earlier post).
Here is a snap of what I do in my journal entry;
Its working out great, only, in my case I use “wheat” as my raw material and after ‘production’ it turns into various wheat milled products. I have to do some pretty annoying working on my cost of wheat, meaning, the amount of wheat (in kgs) that I utilize per production needs to have the cost of wheat on “First In First Out” basis.
It would be great if Manager could keep track of my wheat cost, such as, if I enter 50,000 kgs in quantity in the assembly module it should be able to give me the exact cost that I paid for that 50,000 kgs via various purchase orders all with different costs per kg, on a FIFO basis.
Lets say if I had 10 Purchase Orders totaling 75,000 kgs of wheat in the following manner;
Of this 75,000kgs, 15,000 kgs had previously been used up and now I needed to use a further 50,000kgs for production;
Now, I have to get the cost (using FIFO) for the currently required 50,000 kgs;
This is the cost I end up Crediting in my Journal Entry and then bifurcate the cost through various products following a production guide.
Since manager knows the exact cost of my inventory items and also knows when I end up utilizing them, it would be wonderful if in the assembly/production module it could GIVE the cost upon entering the Quantity rather than users having to provide it.
I hope you give it some thought.
