Kits

A kit is an item that is made up of other items. For example, you may have a pack that consists of a variety of shirts in different sizes. The warehouse takes the individual shirts and makes packs of them. The packs are transferred to the store as a single item. The store can be broken back into the individual items which are then sold. In this example, the pack is a kit item. A kit item can:

So basically, its a normal item. But it has one special feature. It can have ingredient items assigned to it. However, these ingredients are not used as on a recipe item. The stock on the ingredients are not decremented each time the item is sold. They are only used when a kit item is created or broken. When we create a kit, we increase the stock on hand of the kit item and decrease the stock of the ingredient items. Lets say that KIT ITEM Z consists of 3 x SHIRT A and 2 x SHIRT B.

When we create a kit, the following adjustments are made to stock on hand.

Item

Adjust SOH

KIT ITEM Z

+3

SHIRT A

3 x -3 = -9

SHIRT B

2 x -3 = -6

Similarly, when we break a kit we will want to take the stock away from the kit item and put it back to the ingredient items.

Item

Adjust SOH

KIT ITEM Z

-2

SHIRT A

3 x 2 =6

SHIRT B

2 x 2 = 4

A kit item just provides an easy way to move stock between a kit and the ingredient items.

To set up a kit item, you simply create a normal item in Items. Then on the Ingredients tab, check on the Kit Item option and enter the ingredients that make up the kit.

To create or break kits, use the Kit function.
