Does an assembly always have to be a 'make' item.
What if I have an assembly which I want an outside company to make for me?

Are you going to send them components? If so, create a work order, create a warehouse location named after your contractor, make the location "staging". When shipping them parts, move them into this warehouse location. When receiving finished product, go to the work order, click the Issue Parts button, select contractor in the stating location, click Auto-Load, click the Issue button. This will consume the parts and receive the finished product.

If you are not sending them parts, just direct receive finish product into the system. Provide order number or invoice in the Receiving Reference. This will make it easy to find the product later.

Thanks, I'll give it a go. We will not be sending them components. They will be either manufacturing or purchasing hardware themselves. Then assembling everything in to one piece of equipment.
But the main assembly and sub assemblies consist of drawings and components for which we will create a bill of materials.
So I will try your latter suggestion.

If you do not inventory the components then there is no need to add them to the inventory system. If you need to use just BOM,  select  [Make]  for the supplier, add BOM, switch Supplier to the real one (your contractor). The BOM will stay, but to access it, go (once) to the System/Unhide Field Menu and flip the Item is a make switch on the Stocking Properties tab. Save the record. Now, you can buy it and have a BOM for it.

The above works! Exactly what I needed. I'm still using the trial version, but it looks more and more likely that this software will meet our needs.
Thanks.
