Re: Changing product variant after product is received into inventory

Yes, if each grade has a different price I suppose you need to have 
several variants.
Then the simplest I can think of is to have a bit of code to do a 
nightly inventory (output B-grade, input C-grade ; output A-grade, input 
B-grade ; etc.).

But yes you can do it with manufacturing ; especially if you need to be 
able to use A-grade instead of B-grade, MRP can pre-record the 
"manufacturing" of B when it is out of stock, using A as a "raw material".
