Product Consumption

PW4 supports two mode of product consumption for production orders: Ordered Quantity and Production Proportionate.

Ordered Quantity

Ordered quantity method will consume all the materials that were assigned to the production order regardless of actual produced quantity. This method provides tight control over production but has higher potential to cause inventory discrepancy.

Production Proportionate

Production proportionate method will only consume components proportionately to produced quantity. Left over consumable will remain in production area and either can be used in another production order, or can be moved to the storage bin. This method provides higher flexibility and reduces risk of inventory disparity.
