Build Assemblies Inventory Issue

Hi, I am using QuickBooks Premier 2018 for a small manufacturing business. We recently started purchasing components to build assemblies for our customers. Under build assemblies, I understand it will post as pending if the required components to build the assembly are unavailable. However, once I have received the inventory that is needed, it will show that I have x amount available everywhere except when I go back to the Build Assembly - where it still shows I do not have enough. While QB knows I now have enough to build, the Build Assembly screen does not and does not let me remove the pending. 

 

I have found though that if I change the date the inventory was received to before the day the Build Assembly was created, it will update and allow me to remove pending to build. Is it a matter of the date created? If so, what is the point of pending if any action after that is invalid. I would like to keep dates accurate and not just enter them before I create the B.A. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Re: Build Assemblies Inventory Issue

Hello there, purchasingdtr.

 

Welcome to the Intuit Community. Allow me to bring clarifications to your concern about Inventory Assembly in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

Yes, you're correct. If you wish to clear to the Remove Pending Status to build items, you must change the date of the inventory received to a day before the day the Build Assembly was created or have the items/quantity on hand on your build date.

 

The Remove Pending Status button from the bottom left will go active when the quantity that you want to  build is at or below the quantity on hand for the item. If this button is grayed out, then one or more of your items do not have a sufficient quantity on hand for the quantity you want to build.

 

I've got you an article to learn more about Inventory Assembly Items in QuickBooks: Create, build, and work with inventory assembly items.

 

You can use the Pending Builds Report to see a list of all builds that are currently pending.
 

Should you have further questions about building assemblies in QuickBooks, just let me know. I'm always here to help.

Re: Build Assemblies Inventory Issue

This answer is extremely disrespectful. You ignored the original poster's concern that changing the date received to before the assembly was created will result in inaccurate data in his company file about when the items were received. 

 

I have seen a pattern of answers like this where you and other administrators of the quickbooks community discussion either disregard the original poster's question or misunderstand their question and post links to FAQ articles that provide information that only a beginner would need  - not someone asking a complex question.

Re: Build Assemblies Inventory Issue

I appreciate your time racing this feedback, @adam_c.

 

I've come to share some clarifications about the build assembly inventory.

 

The Remove Pending Status is for us to know there are pending items to build and at the same time, there are items with enough quantity that you may be able to use to build other products.

 

You can change the date whenever you want. However, the status is for us to know how many items you need to build. I suggest you create an assembly once you've received all items.

 

Let me know if there's anything I can do to help you with the inventory assembly in QuickBooks. I'm always around here in the Intuit Community to help.

This has been a quirk in QBDT for over a decade

 

what is happening is that QB is looking at the date of the pending  build and counting items on hand as of that date.

 

So when you buy more, it does not see it.

 

Change the date on the pending build to today, and click the build button, it will ask about saving it, say yes.  Bring up the pending build again, and it will work fine
