build assembly make fault in real stock while manufacturing period

I have an issue: once I build an assembly product to send all material to the production line QuickBooks adds it at once to stock as a finished product although it is still in production not finished yet? the workers maybe need one week to finish ( as an example) and I need to be updating with real material and real finished products qty, please help me how I solve this problem.

as example:

I will build 10 pcs from item" X " so it will  need10 pc from item" Y" and 10 pcs from item "Z".

I send material needed to product manager to manufacture in 5 days.

but QuickBooks build it at once and add it to the finished product as 10 pcs "X".

production produces 2 " X" daily.

so always my stock for the finished product is wrong and I can't track.

please help me with what I can do?

Hello @ahmed elmosalamy,


Welcome to the Community. I'm here to help you with your concern about the inventory assembly items in QuickBooks Desktop.


When building an assembly product, the system will automatically show the stock as a finished product. Currently, an option or ability to track the daily production of the manufacturing process is unavailable.


Right now, there are only two ways to adjust your stock of finished goods. You can either unbuild an assembled product or edit your stock of finished goods without affecting the stock of components.


For more information about building products using inventory parts, as well as how to combine your items in QuickBooks, I recommend the following articles:

please what do you mean by "edit your stock of finished goods without affecting the stock of components."

Hi there, @ahmed elmosalamy.


This is a type of adjustment that won't affect the quantities or value of your product's components.


The inventory adjustment is the right way to write off inventories. Also, you will need to select an Expense Account as the Adjustment Account to reflect this on your profit and loss report.


Please check this article for your reference on how to adjust your inventory quantity or value in QuickBooks Desktop.
