Here is what I am trying to do. In the manufacturing process, I have created raw materials (RM) in inventory items, then to move the inventory through my manufacturing process, I have take parts of materials and created sub-assemblies. There are multiple processes before the finished goods are ready to be sold.
1. Assembly 1: RM 1 and RM 2
2. Assembly 2: Assembly 1 and RM 3
3. Assembly 3: Assembly 2 and some work is done by sub-contractor
4. Assembly 4: Assembly 3 and RM 4
5. Assembly: final product to be sold.
Question: how to manage step 3, where the inventory can be shown to which sub-contractor, i have given the job to.
I do need to show the amount of inventory i have given to the sub and the amount I have from the job completion from the sub.
It's a pleasure to have you in our forum, @Nitin123,
Thanks for the in-depth explanation about what's going on. We're currently unable to assign inventories and assemblies to sub-contractors in QuickBooks Desktop. When you assemble products in the system, you only assign the components needed to create a new unique item.
While the preference you're looking for is currently unavailable, you can add a description to the items done by the sub-contractors in the Item List. See this:
