I have trying to find a solution to my situation.

Actually, I want to manage the manufacturing part of clothes. My company provides all raw materials (fabrics, accessories, listed in the BOM) to a subcontractor that make the clothes. This subcontractor charge per unit made, and I would like to put this cost in the BOM.

Maybe this is not the correct way to do it, so if there is a better solution, I am open to any solution.

Thank you

Hi Fabrice, is that cost decided at time of manufacturing ?

Hi Baiju, Yes the cost is decided with the subcontractor before starting the production.

I think you can add an extra tab in manufacturing order to compute extra cost. This is a suggestion, with a clear discussion we can get better ideas.
