Topic:   Secondary machining required on a part

By: SandyGPosted on: Nov 12 2017 at 12:04:51 PM
We have many parts that require one vendor to laser cut them, another to weld, and a third to powder coat. Is there a way to associate all three of these costs, all three vendors, with one item? Any tricks to make it work?

Some people would say that the raw material that is sent to cutting is not the same part that comes back from cutting. It has a different part number. That way you could have a quantity of items in your inventory in different stages. ie some cut. Some cut and welded, some complete powder coated.

But others would just create 3 part numbers. One called "LASER-CUT". Another called "WELD" and a third called "POWDER COATING" Give each of those 'parts' a vendor and a cost.

Then the finished product is just an assembly consisting of those 3 parts/processes and the raw material. That way the total cost should work out just right.
