Earlier this year, we discussed about optimizing inventory in presence of kits or bundles. Since that time, Salescast has been steadily moving forward, and we are proud to announce that support for kits/bundles/assemblies/bills of materials is now available.
All those situations have in common that the granularity of the inventory inputs (goods received) do not match the granularity of the inventory outputs (goods served). The bundle feature of Salescast allows to rewrite the historical sales data with the right granularity, focusing on consumed parts rather than consumed bundles.
The bundles can be listed through the optional file named
Lokad_Parts. The technical instruction are available in the Salescast section of our website.
