Sets are a group of items which are assembled when the set is picked and packed. Sets can be made up of items which are sold individually. Each of these component items appear on the pick slip and are packed together. Component items might not appear on the same pick slip, but the picks are created at the same time.
Variable sets are lists of items that customers can choose from to make up the set they want to purchase. Like sets, variable sets are assembled when the set variable is picked and packed. The items which make up the variable set might not appear on the same pick slip, but the picks are created at the same time.
Finished goods are items that require assembly prior to picking and packing. A finished good is made up of one or more components. These components are assembled to build the finished good. The finished good is picked and packed, not the individual components. The system tracks the usage of each component and will recommend re-order quantities. The system also determines demand for the finished good item and recommends the number of finished goods to be made up to meet demand.
