Why are you not recommending inventory assemblies?
I don’t recommend assemblies because the process is clunky and not accurate. It would only be useful for packs like gift pack of 3 bottles. In practice, most wineries do not actually assemble a gift box. Instead they grab the 3 bottles off the shelf and ring it up as a three-pack. One winery sells a pack with a bottle of port and 2 cute port glasses. They have a special box for this pack. For this purpose assemblies work well.
For all other purposes like bottle runs or even blending bulk wine, Assemblies don’t take into consideration the indirect costs, and figuring out how to include them requires an excel worksheet, so you might as well keep it all in excel.
Let me know if you wanted to use Assemblies for another reason.
