One item code, multiple process, how to manage inventory
Am new to SAP B1, Am using one item code, which undergoes many process, for eg, Item-Iron plate(finished part),process- rawmaterial->Rolling->Machining->Grinding->surface coating. Currently we using one part no. for all the process. So wat happening is, I purchased raw material and am trying to update stock, it is updating as finished component. Also while calculating cost it should include all process cost incurred for making one finished component. I know we should use separate item code or part no. for each process, but we already imported bom like this. We imported 10BOM's each BOM contains minimum of 1000 line items.
Kindly suggest me is there any solution without creating new item code for each process.

It is not necessary to create item master data for each process.
For example, I have an item A that need to machined, grind, tested and coated. For this process, i will create only FG and raw item master data. For testing and coating i will create general item master data.
1. Item A- FG
2. Item A- Raw
3. T & C---For testing and coating.
If above process does not fulfill, you need Add-on for production order.
