This add-on allows internal assembly jobs to be invoiced to an internal customer and the assembled item to be sold as Parts. All Costs are recorded and when “Assembled”, costs are divided equally amongst the quantity of assembled parts.

A good example would be for a workshop that assembles and sells engines or steering boxes or gearboxes, etc.

The thinking would be to buy in 4 crankshafts (assuming we are building four engines to sell). 16 pistons, 4 full gasket sets, etc.

All these parts can be reflected on the assembly job via “Parts” or “PO’s” and the Labour to be included in the cost's as well

Once all items are charged to the assembly job, the job can be costed and reflected in the relevant accounts.

Some familiarity with Orion is assumed with this article Please contact Orion if any further training is required
