About inventoriable materials
Inventoriable materials hold a quantity and value that increases and decreases based on stock changes.
- Enter an expense → Total inventory value increases
- Create a manufacture → Total inventory value decreases
To set your material as inventoriable, select the Inventoriable checkbox on your Add Material form. This setting cannot be changed after your material is created.
If you have items you would like to track that aren't directly used in your manufactures (such as tools or equipment), you can set these as non-inventoriable materials.
Unlike inventoriable materials, they don't hold a cost value in the system and are not included in any manufacture or cost of goods sold calculations.
They do not have inventory capabilities and cannot have inventory adjustments. Purchases of non-inventoriable materials can be logged via Material Expenses and are in this case treated as a non-material expense and not included in your cost of goods sold calculations. Creating expenses for non-inventoriable materials do not increase stock.
Non-inventoriable materials are added in the same way as inventoriable materials via the Add Material Form. To mark a material as non-inventoriable, ensure that the Inventoriable checkbox is unchecked on the form before saving:
Once a material has been added as a non-inventoriable, it cannot be changed to inventoriable. You will need to delete the material entry and re-add it instead.
