Important tip: it’s a good idea to NOT mark this product as ‘Can Auto Assemble’. Why? If you forget to run the assembly when you receipt the goods, you’ll immediately be alerted because you’ll run out of finished goods in your stock. The solution? Run the assembly and no harm done.
It’s crucial to get the unit of measure right at the outset. In our scenario, we are managing our stock in units of individual shampoo bottles. We may order 96,000 of them from our supplier.
We may sell 96 to a customer when we sell 9 boxes of a dozen each.
If we want to have a price for a box of 12 we would set that up as a product with ‘Can Auto Assemble’.
If we have a shampoo and conditioner pack, or a travel pack, we would set it up as its own product with its own bill of material and no auto assemble.
And there you have it, a few simple steps that will help you keep a tight leash on your goods being manufactured abroad.
