NetSuite 2020.1 enables you to outsource your manufacturing efforts either from a purchase order or from a work order.

Outsource from a Purchase Order

After receiving an outsourced item on the PO, NetSuite builds the assembly for the outsourced work order. Assemblies ensure the manufacturing processes you define, such as expected completion time and anticipated waste, are clearly documented and accompany the PO to the subcontractor. Within the PO you can define the following outsourcing details:

  • Assemblies
  • Outsourcing Location
  • Production Start Date
  • Production End Date
  • Bill of Materials
  • Bill of Materials Revision

Outsource from a Work Order

Immediate response to price with realtime visibility on Cost of Goods

With Outsourced Manufacturing, you will be able to understand a true cost of goods (COGS) is important for establishing your selling price. You will now have the overall cost including the components owned by the manufacturer, and the cost incurred at the subcontractor such as cost of labor, the assemble location expense and and potentially some components cost for the build all in one view.
