How can I track external manufacturing services like electroplating?

If you perform the plating yourself in-house, then you should be able to include this process in your products via components

Using this approach, you'll take an un-electroplated material and add the plating materials to manufacture an electroplated version of the material - this will then allow you to create a mechanism to consume the plating materials.

If you send the material to be plated externally, this generally should not be included in your COGS so would be recorded as an indirect (non-material) expense instead - you can optionally link the electroplating expense to the product / order that has been plated to better factor this cost into your profitability calculations.
