I was giving a demo of manufacturing for a potential customer and they asked a great question.

Their business is growing plants to sell and they use manufacturing orders to track the plant from germination, through it’s growing stages.

The first work center would be “Germination” and it doesn’t matter how many seeds they plant, the germination rate is 3 days for a particular seed.

How would that be represented on the BOM under the Run Units and Run Time, if quantity isn’t a factor?

@donnadeskins55 - use the setup time for fixed time if you want a cost. Otherwise look at using either move or finish time.
