Work in Progress caters for ‘make-to-stock’, ‘make-to-order’, and ‘special order’ items manufactured in a batch process. The system gives you total visibility into the “expected” vs. “actual” costs within each job.
Work in Progress caters for short, medium and long term jobs, as well as for master and sub jobs where a larger project may be made up of smaller jobs, with different materials and operations, consolidated into one large job.
The system allows for ‘kit issues’ for short run jobs and actual issues for medium and long term jobs. The ‘kit issues’ systems work for either material or labor or both if you desire.
As material and operations are recorded in the Work in Progress module, all add-on value work is added to the value of the job. Once completed, the item is either transferred to Inventory system (using actual or standard costing methods) or billed through the Sales Order module at the accumulated cost, which is relieved from the Work in Progress module.

Product Definition for standard products
