Topic: Multiple units from single BOM
My scenario is I use inputs to produce an item that will be broken down and used as an input further along the manufacturing process. Eventually I produce from 1 item up to 150 units of finished product.
So 10 item A + 5 item B + 10 item C = 24 item D. If the BOM module is structured to produce just one unit of the item then my BOM has to look like:
.4166667 item A + .208333 item B + .4166667 item C = 1 item D
I have done this before and it is inelegant and rounding can cause errors.
Is there any way to make the BOM read like the actual process:
10 item A + 5 item B + 10 item C = 24 item D
Then when I use item D I may take 5 item D + item E etc to produce Item F
In the actual scenario I am doing 90 + .33 + 2.5 +11 = 90 so the decimals are very inelegant
