Flatten top level composite items to view consolidated BOM components
There needs to be a way to 'flatten' a top level composite item that is made up of other composite items and regular items, that way you can see ALL components that make up the top level composite item and the consolidated total quantity of each part.
Example: you make a product called Composite Item Product, which contains multiple sub assemblies, Composite Sub 1, Sub 2, Sub 3, Sub 4. These Composite Subs have multiple parts to them, some of the parts may be shared ("Screw A" for example). Currently you have to manually look at each Composite Sub individually and count every single item, then add all of the components together via a spreadsheet or other means in order to determine how many of each component are used. For this example, Screw A is used 3 times in each Composite Sub. Only by manually counting will you find out you need to order 12 Screw A's (3 screws x 4 Composite Subs). This is the only way to order parts for Composite Item Product. Zoho needs a way to 'flatten' the Composite Item Product in Inventory so you can see a consolidated list of all components that make up Composite Item Product. This feature would allow you to see 12 Screw A's automatically, and not require manual counting/calculations and checking every single sub assembly that makes up the Composite Item Product.

You must have a look at ERP Gold software. It will help you to manage your inventory as well as provide you with Serialized inventory management.
