Suppose that it takes 1 unit of component 1 to produce 1 unit of product 1.
If I make a manufacturing order for 20 units of product 1, proceed to the 'Produce' window, then changing the quantity field to a number less than 20 results in the number of units of component 1 required being correspondingly reduced. Eg if I change the number in the quantity field to 15, the number of units of component 1 required under 'To Consume' lowers to 15, as it should.
However, if I change the quantity field to 25, the number of units of component 1 under the 'To Consume' heading is capped at 20. Furthermore, when I press Confirm, 25 units of product 1 are added to my Units on Hand, but only 20 units of component 1 are depleted (ie consumed).
It seems to me that either the quantity field should not be able to be changed to a larger number than was originally entered into the Manufacturing Order, or if it can, as is possible now, the number of consumed units should be comensurate with the number of units produced.
This is to support use cases where either the quantity of components used or finished goods made are not always predictable.
If you purchase limes per UNIT, and make Lime Juice per GALLON, then the amount of Lime Juice is dependent on how large the Limes are, and if any are bad. If Limes come 144 per case, then one day you may make 1.2 Gallons and another day you may make 1 Gallon. In both cases, 144 Limes are consumed.
Not a great example, but you perhaps get my point?
