Repackaging a Finished Good (Special Production Order)


This article will walk you through how to split a finished good to be repackaged as a different finished good.


Step by Step Guide

 The best way to handle this is to use a Special Production Order. Here are the steps to repackage a finished good using a Production Order:

  1. Go to Production>Production Order
  2. Change the "Type" from Standard to Special. What this does is ignores the Bill of Materials for the item being produced.
  3. Enter the item number you are producing in the header
  4. Enter the amount you are going to create
  5. In the components, enter the items that will be used to execute this repackaging
  6. The Planned Quantities will default to a 1-to-1 ratio. Update the Planned Quantities to match what you are actually going to issue and receive. (the example below is turning a 1/2 BBL keg into 3 sixtels)
    • the 1/2 BBL keg Item
    • 3 1/6 BBL keg shells
    • 3 keg caps (or 2 if you are going to reuse the keg cap from the 1/2 BBL keg)
    • Negative 1 1/2 BBL keg shell (to bring this item back into stock)
      • You'll set this item to be Manual if it's set to BackFlush under the Issue Method
  7. Enter the Date that this repackaging took place
  8. Add the Production Order
  9. Process/Express the PdO the same way you would do any other production
