One item code, multiple process, how to manage inventory


Am new to SAP B1, Am using one item code, which undergoes many process, for eg, Item-Iron plate(finished part),process- rawmaterial->Rolling->Machining->Grinding->surface coating. Currently we using one part no. for all the process. So wat happening is, I purchased raw material and am trying to update stock, it is updating as finished component. Also while calculating cost it should include all process cost incurred for making one finished component. I know we should use separate item code or part no. for each process, but we already imported bom like this. We imported 10BOM's each BOM contains minimum of 1000 line items.

Kindly suggest me is there any solution without creating new item code for each process.

    Welcome to B1 forum. You have define item code each process to avoid increae/decrease in stock level. In your process, you may use item code like,

    Item-Iron plate- Raw

    Item-Iron plate-Rolling

    Item-Iron plate- Machining

    Item-Iron plate- Grinding

    Item-Iron plate- Surface coating.

    Depending your process, you may not be needed all items as inventory items to avoid unsufficient stock.

    Thanks & Regards,

    You should maintain separate Item Code for each process then only you can able to Add the Overhead cost to Finished Product.
