Auto-Build automatically builds Items as needed when invoicing. Optionally, this feature can build all Built Components (subassemblies in the bill of materials) and their Built Components (subassembly in a subassembly).
This Solution describes the Auto-Build feature. (5909)
Auto-Build can be turned on to automatically Build items that are Built and are being invoiced into a negative Quantity On Hand.
A checkbox in the Item Preferences turns on Auto-Build and affects all Built Items.
Invoices for Built Items that have an insufficient Quantity On Hand generate an automatic Item Adjustment to Build the quantity needed of the Item being sold.
The Invoice uses the Cost of the Item as calculated for the Item Adjustment.
Sales Orders that are converted to Invoices use the Auto-Build.
Quotes that are converted to Invoices use the Auto-Build.
Item Costs for Built Items are automatically updated when added to an Invoice.
Features for Multi-Warehouse, To Build Qty, and Auto-Enter Qty are supported
