Want to know how many of a finished product you can build? inFlow can help you out with that!
With just a single click, inFlow can calculate the maximum number of a finished product you can build based on the quantity available of your raw materials.
You’ll need to have the bill of materials already set up in order to use this feature.
To check how many you can build:
- Go to Main Menu > Inventory > Product List and navigate to the finished product you want to check.
- Click on the Bill of Materials tab.
- Click the How many can I build? button at the bottom left.
inFlow will proceed to calculate and show you a new button when it’s done (pictured below).
In the example above, the button now shows Manufacture 38. This indicates that it is possible to build a maximum of 38 bicycles. Clicking on this button will create a work order for that amount.
From here, you can complete the work order, or adjust the quantity you want to build.
How is this number calculated?
It’s based on the quantity available of your raw materials and components (intermediate assemblies). It’s important to note that inFlow uses quantity available instead of quantity on hand.
Quantity on hand includes items that are already part of another work order or sales order, so this would end up giving you a false estimate. You can read more about the different quantities and their definitions here.
