ITrack Enterprise has 4 normal types of collections:

  • Assembly - An assembly is a master part that is composed of one or more sub-parts, which become available only by doing additional work on the assembly (traditionally through a Work Order). Items assigned to an assembly are left at quantity 0, but are searchable so you know they're potentially available. When selling an assembly, you may be asked to choose which child parts are still available (in case you partially broke down the assembly) and to change cost allocation.
    • Creating an Assembly: On the Link tab, select "This is part of a collection," and select "Assembly" from the Type dropdown list. When you do this, a second dropdown list of Template becomes active. Templates can be created under Configure >>> Inventory >>> Assembly Templates, and are linked to the Assembly via the part type. Selecting a Template populates the fields in "Members in this Collection." Click the "Add Existing" button to associate an existing item with the Assembly. The "New Item" button allows you to create a new part specifically for this Assembly. The "Breakdown" button opens the Breakdown Assembly window, which allows you to edit the Quantity to disperse, the method of cost distribution, and will open the work Order, if "Advanced breakdown mode" is checked in the bottom right of the window. If you add an item by mistake, or want to change the Members, you can click the Remove button at the bottom of the screen to delete a Member from the list.
    • Ordering an Assembly: In a Purchase Order, you can use the lookup function to look up the name of the Collection. The Collection name will be visible on the PO. Receiving those items updates stock on hand for the Collection.
    • Selling an Assembly: On a Sales Order, use the lookup function to look up the name of the Collection. The Collection name will be visible on the SO/Invoice. This sale will adjust Stock on Hand for the Collection.
  • Kit - A kit is a collection of items that is sold under the alias of a particular inventory item called the "master" item. When a kit is sold, quantity from each item in the kit is removed from inventory however sales history is only attributed to the kit "master" item itself. The assumption of the kit is that it is assembled in-house. A kit is a collection of items that is sold under the alias of a particular inventory item called the "master" item. When a kit is sold, quantity from each item in the kit is removed from inventory however sales history is only attributed to the kit "master" item itself. Kits allow you to add existing items to them. Sales do not affect QOH for the Master item, but does on the sub-items.
    • Creating a Kit: On the Link tab, select "This is part of a collection," and select "Kit" from the Type dropdown list. Under "Members in this Collection," there is an "Add Existing" button, signifying only existing parts in the system can be added to a template. If you add an item by mistake, or want to change the Members, you can click the Remove button at the bottom of the screen to delete a Member from the list.
    • Ordering a Kit: Kits cannot be added to a Purchase Order, but their Members can if you search for the individual Members. Receiving those items updates stock on hand for the Members, not the Collection.
    • Selling a Kit: On a Sales Order, use the lookup function to look up the name of the Collection. This will enter the Collection name in black and the Members in grey to the SO. This gives the customer a list of the component parts of the Kit (Collection), but not pick and choose between the Members. You can adjust the prices of the Collection and the Members. Keep in mind, adding a price for a Member will add that amount to the price of the SO. If you have a standard price for the Collection and a customer wants that price broken down by Members, set the Collection line price field to zero first, then change the Member line prices. this will keep you from accidentally over charging your customer. This sale will adjust Stock on Hand for the Members, not the Collection itself.
  • Ordered Kit - The assumption of the ordered kit is that it is ordered from a vendor. A kit is a collection of items that is sold under the alias of a particular inventory item called the "master" item. When a kit is sold, quantity from each item in the kit is removed from inventory however sales history is only attributed to the kit "master" item itself. Sub-items are not listed on the invoice. Sales do not affect QOH for sub-items.

  • Template - A collection of parts under a single name. These can be used to group multiple parts together so that they can be used as a group. For example, there might be a template called "Winter Special" which would include a windshield scraper, a bottle of cold starting fluid, and a few gallons of anti-ice wiper fluid. Templates offer a convenient way to work with several commonly grouped items at once. A collection of parts under a single name.
