With the dis-assembly module DEAR Inventory can now offer the solution for unit conversion between purchases, stock and sell units of measures. The conversion is implemented as chain conversion using auto-assembly and auto-disassembly functions.
You purchase wine in boxes of 12 bottles. You stock them as individual bottles and sell as boxes of 6 bottles.
You will create three products:
- Wine (Box of 12),
- Wine (individual bottle) and
- Wine (Box of 6).
By adding Wine bottle to the BOM of Wine (Box of 12), with quantity of 12, and enabling auto-disassembly you instruct DEAR to automatically convert Wine (Box of 12) products that you use in Purchase into Wine Bottle products.
Similarly you can use auto-assembly to perform a reverse conversion when you are selling boxes of 6. Wine (Box of 6) will have BOM with 6 Wine (individual bottle).
