We manufacture sticks that we apply labels to. The labels can have different artwork, but the artwork itself is not consumed during printing/manufacturing. The whole process is outsourced to a printer once we give them the artwork.
In the documentation, it says in reference to the “Include Item In Manufacturing” checkbox that “in case there are operations or services you need to include in the BOM that are not necessarily an Item used for manufacturing, uncheck this checkbox.”
However, when I create a BOM without Operations, but include the artwork item on it under “Materials”, when I create a Purchase Order for (say 9) sticks, it requires 9 artwork.
What’s the best way to handle artwork on the BOM? What I’d like to is avoid tracking stock on them entirely. Suggestions?
