Example of using an Assembly

Situation: If the design is a house or project we have five items that are always included but duplicated if a house or project. We do not want to have to create a mapped inventory rule for each item which is effectively the same rule but a different inventory code.

Task: Create an assembly of items and map them to a house or project query.

Step 1: Create an assembly called GroupHouse.
Select ‘Add‘ and choose the items required from the inventory listing.

Step 2: Select type Assembly. In the assembly dropdown select the assembly GroupHouse.

Step 3: Create the quantity of assembly items required. We are using an ‘if‘ statement to look for a project name (p.name) called house and then multiplying the quantity in assembly by 1 or if a project multiply by 2.
