How To: Build a Stock Item

To build a stock item when using warehouse control, see How To: Build Stock Items using Warehouse Control

Build items are constructed from other stock items. By default no automatic stock movements occur for the child components when build items are added to sales orders as the quantity built via the relationships tab affects the child stock levels, although build items can be automatically be built if the child component stock is available and the [ System Values | Stock - Auto Build ] option is enabled. Stock items that are contained within the build item can also be sold independently, see [ Stock | Detail | Relationships ] screen.

The parent build item must be built in order to create stock to sell.

  1. Press Alt+E or click the green triangle icon is the buttonbar's EDIT button to enter edit mode.
  2. Click PackBuildBuild1.jpg and in the popup enter how many items you have built.
  3. Click on 'OK'.
  4. Press Ctrl+S or click the disk icon is the button bar's SAVE button to save.


  • If the option Build Stock Value is enabled in [ Edit System Values | Options | Stock ] then the overheads of the parent item will be calculated from the overheads listed against the child items.
  • Nested Build relationships are supported.
  • Nested Move With/Pack/Bundle relationships are NOT supported
