Hi guys, I am just wondering how do we record variations in BoM?

Lets say BoM of Product A: 10 Kg of Flour

Sometimes it's possible to consume 10.5 Kg of Flour (ie. additional 0.5Kg from the BoM) How do we record the extra usage of Flour in the Manufacturing Order? (Do we record this in the MO?)

Edit the raw materials list as needed before finishing the manufacturing order. Just click on the entry and change the value of flour from 10 to 10.5. When the order is complete it will deduct the additional raw materials.

Thanks Brett for your reply. However, I can't change the entry as the entry of materials used in the BoM isn't displayed.

This is what I did to create the MO: Press "Create" -> Choose the Product -> Enter Product Qty -> Press Save
