Assemble a kit and deduct quantity of child products

Hi, We have products that we assemble from some child products, before selling it. We can’t just sell the composition before having the assembled product. For example, in PC assembly, the kit is made up of a set of individually tracked hardware components and software. When you form a kit you consume and combine these items to produce the finished kit, which then becomes inventoried stock. Each individual stock item that forms the kit is issued out of inventory and the kit that was created becomes one inventory item. Please can we have a feature to convert the child items into an assembled kit, which will simultaneously deduct the stock from the child products and add the kit product in stock? Again, we can’t just sell the kit product before assembling it, which can take some time. So we want to have the option to just click “convert to kit” or something similar. Please help. Thanks. IK

We have the same problem with manufactured items. A part number contains a variety of assembled parts, which only come off the stock at the point of 'processing' - that can be days sometimes, meanwhile the stock is well off. This needs to happen at the very start of the order -

The same thing really should be available on Variations also, surely selecting the different items and then selecting 'create variation' would be simpler than scrolling through lists of items seperately??

..and by the way, who thought using a small screen in the corner for inventory searching was a good idea? The whole bottom section of the screen is available, then we wouldn't have to drag the column sizes to read the information!
