Building items

Not available in AccountRight Basics

Building items is the process of making a finished item by transferring quantities and values from the component items (such as raw materials) to the finished item.

For example, you could build an item of furniture (the finished item) by transferring the required quantities and value of timber and fabric (component items) to that furniture item.

You can build items in two ways:

  • manually, for a one-off build.

  • automatically, for an item you build repeatedly. See Auto-building items.

Before you can build a finished item, you need to have created an item record for each component and the finished item. See Creating items.
