Assembling a Product
QuickBooks Premier and Enterprise include a cool tool for accounting for the manufacture of items. Suppose that Pine Lake Porcelain, the example business I use in this book, mostly just buys and resells coffee mugs and other porcelain doodads. But also suppose that once a year, Pine Lake Porcelain assembles a romantic collection of red coffee mugs into a boxed St. Valentine’s Day gift set. In this case, QuickBooks can record the assembly of a boxed gift set that combines, for example, six red coffee mugs, a cardboard box clad in shiny red foil, and some red tissue paper.
