The multi-step work order process functionality in the Manufacturing module allows users to post manufacturing components (i.e. materials, labor, or machine resources) into WIP (work-in-process) up to a certain step in a multi-level production process or post all the steps in a work order at one time. Obviously, this impacts the timing of when AccountMate updates an inventory component’s Allocated Quantity—which can, in turn, affect your visibility to know if there are sufficient inventory resources to manufacture a product.

To describe this process in detail, please see our Article #1321: How Multi-Step Work Order Processing Affects Inventory Quantities. This Technical Note explains the effects of each manufacturing phase on the inventory quantities of a component and a master item and also discusses how AccountMate updates the inventory quantities.
