Batch Manufacturing


When batch production is used, a number of identical products are produced simultaneously (instead of one at a time). These batches go through the manufacturing process together.

Batch Records

Document the materials, manufacturing, and packaging involved in the process.

BOM Hierarchy

BOMs show the hierarchical structure of the finished product.

Product Units

Create and store material units.

External Product Shipment

Ship the product you created to external resources.


Material Product

When creating a material product, you can define the “BOM” (Bill Of Material) Hierarchy.
