Entering Finished Goods Information (WFGD)

Overview: A finished good is an item that requires assembly prior to picking and packing and is comprised of one or more component items that may also be sold individually, or of raw materials that are used only as components of a finished good. An item record must exist for each component item, including raw materials (so that you can track inventory and usage).

When an Order Entry operator places an order for a finished good, the components of the finished good do not appear on the Order Entry screen, only the finished good item.

Unit demand (units ordered) is tracked at the finished goods level. Dollar demand is tracked at the finished goods level. For example: the finished good is a sketch kit and its component items are 1 drawing pad, 3 charcoal pencils and 1 erasure. A customer orders the sketch kit for $20.00. Units ordered for the finished good increase by 1, and dollars ordered increase for the finished good by $20.00.

To assemble a finished good, you must perform a make up finished good inventory transaction (transaction code = M) which increases the quantity of the finished good and decreases the quantity of its component items. You can also reserve component items while you assemble the finished good through the finished good work order process. See Performing Inventory Transactions for more information on the make up finished good inventory transaction and on the finished good work order process.

Set component upload: You can use the set component upload option to create the Kit header and kit components. See Importing Set Components (WCUP) for information.

• finished goods the system has updated

• the cost of the finished good before the update

• the cost of the finished good after the update.

The periodic function that updates the cost of a finished good is called PHR0049. See Executing Periodic Processes (EPRO) for more information on periodic processes.
