This can currently be managed in Unleashed using a manual approach, by assembling the first level manually, followed by the second level, then the third – all depending on how many product Bill of Material levels you have. In summary, Unleashed is currently best suited for light manufacturing.
Manufacturing Process Bliss

Manufacturing Process Management
Assemble your goods and build products from components. Unleashed ensures that the quantities and cost of components are included in the finished product.
Unleashed provides an accurate reflection of the manufacturing process, ensuring you maintain accuracy for your accounting records.
Planning for production
By creating manufacturing assemblies in Unleashed, you create demand for that stock. This ensures you can efficiently plan and purchase the necessary stock for each assembly.
Maintain visibility through a Reorder Report to help you work out the necessary components needed for assemblies.
“Forecasting is a big part of my role, making sure that we can keep ideal inventory levels and look at the trends in our sales and therefore be prepared for future sales volumes.”

Third Party Assembly Costs
Third party costs are any additional costs apart from the cost of the component themselves, such as a third party logistics provider. With Unleashed, you are able to add these additional costs to the manufacturing assembly process to get an accurate assembled product cost.
Manage auto-assembled products with Unleashed by setting up a Bill of Material for each kitset, allowing you to build kitsets on the fly.
Unleashed automates these processes to save time so you can focus on growing your business.
Unleashed’s disassembly feature allows you to reverse the assembly process, as well as breakdown products automatically from purchase. Perfect if you are buying stock in bulk and need to break it down into individual components.
Unleashed takes care of the disassembly automatically and spreads the purchase cost across all the different components.

Is it possible to have multi-layered assemblies, that is, a Bill of Material inside a Bill of Material?
Is it possible to have Never Diminishing products inside a Bill of Materials?
Yes! To do so, simply add a product into Unleashed, ensuring the Never Diminishing and Component Product are switched on. This will allow you to search for your Never Diminishing product when creating your Bill of Materials.
How do we “complete” an automatic auto-assembly?
There are two options. First, by completing the sales order and Unleashed will take care of the rest. Or secondly, you can choose to manually select to assemble it within the sales order. You cannot go “into” the assembly to “complete” it, this has been done by design. The reason for this is that we want to prevent a situation where an assembly is “completed”, yet the sales order isn’t ready to go out – and in the meantime your stock goes missing (e.g. theft).
