In our business we produce t-shirts and t-shirts has number of costs associated with it. For example,
to produce 1 t-shirt it involves several costs such as
Sewing is done by supplier A and printing is done by supplier B. For this scenario, I tested sub-contracting but it has some usability issues. I will explain that below.
A normal purchase order has several items to be manufactured through supplier, for example,
- t-shirt-black-large 500 qty
- t-shirt-black-medium 500 qty
- t-shirt-black-small 500 qty and so on.
Each of above items has a BOM defined to include printing cost. After a PO is created, we have to transfer material to supplier and in PO when I select “Transfer > Material to Supplier” it asks for the item where we want stock to be transferred and this has to be done for each item in the PO. Lets say a PO has 20 items. I have to transfer material to supplier 20 times to complete the subcontracting.
Is there a easy way of doing this?
All I want is to include any associated costs in items so when final item arrives in the warehouse, its valuation rate reflect costs associated with it.
