Assembled Items’ Cost Calculation and Inventory

Assembled Items’ Cost Calculation and Inventory

When an item is assembled, it takes on the cost of the pieces that make up the parent.


The DBL CHEESEBURGER is assembled to the SKU for a block of cheese and to a box of beef patties that are purchased. Each time a double cheeseburger is sold, inventory is reduced by 2 for a beef patty and .0125 for a slice of cheese based on the ratio for the qty that makes up the item sold.

In this example, 7 DBL CHEESEBURGER items were sold below:

The parent does not carry ANY inventory, the inventory is always carried on the child units.

So S2K shows 7 sold, then reduces by 7 and splits to the children according to ratio.

And inventory was depleted accordingly:

The cost of the item when sold will also reflect that portion of the child item. By right clicking on the lightbulb you can see the cost history, in this example the cost of the DBL CHEESEBURGER is showing $.93 based on the cost of the children that makes it.

Patty Cost = 2 patties @ $.3988 each = $.80

Cheese Cost = .0125 (2/160th of a brick) x $10.31 = $.13

Total cost = $.93

Cost is from invoice below:

You can see assembled items and their purchased cost under the Inventory Assembly report in REPORTS> Non-Fuel Inventory > Inventory Assembly Report.
