    Does AX have the ability to do negative BOM.  By that when the BOM completes it adds to inventory?  Instead of consuming form inventory.

    Hi Mark,

    Yes.  We have BOM lines setup with negative quantity.  This is a simple way to handling by-products.  One caveat is if you have supplier provided materials that come in at 0 or very low cost and then you have a negative quantity on your by-product that has some market value, you could end up with negative cost to produce the finished good.  AX will not be happy and give you an error message when you close the production order.

    Thanks,
    Barclay

    In addition to a BOM line with a negative quantity, you could also look at using a Formula instead of a BOM which can create co-products in addition to the main formula item.
