The Production Module Overview

The Production Module Overview


Production simply involves product(s) being converted into another product.  It is an internal movement of stock and shifting of value from a set of individual components to an assembled product. The Production module enables you to view and manage any goods that you may want to produce in your inventory management process. You can record the processes involved in producing finished goods from component stock. This is ideal for users who can create their own products from raw materials or kit-sets. 


This is a special feature that is only available for users on specified plans. Check out the Unleashed website for more information.


About the Production process

These products are your Component products, used in your Bill of Materials (BOM) to assemble other products.

See Create new Products for more information.


2. Create Bill of Materials

This is your "Recipe". When you create a Bill of Materials it is the "recipe" for creating the product.

See Add Bill of Materials for more information.


3. Build the product

Workflow examples

In this section, we provide use case scenarios to demonstrate how you can use the Production module, with several different work-flow scenarios. The following examples aim to demonstrate how you can use the Production module in Unleashed.


Assembling a kit-set product

John has a furniture retail store and he wants to assemble a lounge suite to sell in his show-room. His lounge suite consists of a two seat and three seat couches and also a single seat chair. Therefore, it makes sense for John to use Unleashed's Auto-Assembly function to assemble his kit-set.



See Activating and using Auto-Assembly for more information.


Manufacturing a production run for your product

Lisa owns a vineyard and wishes to use Unleashed to create and run a production run for her wine making. She needs to bulk manufacture her product. The production run would include important factors such as bottling, corking, and labeling a pallet of her wine.



See Wine making process diagram for more detailed information on how you could do this in Unleashed.
