Unlimited ingredients/components propagation

With Abacre Point of Sale it's possible to do unlimited (multi-level) inventory propagation to create very complex recipe like pizza has ingredients dough and red sauce. Then red sauce has ingredients fresh tomato,  olive oil, basil leaves, flour. So inventory quantities and cost will be propagated through all level of ingredients.

Start the program.

Go to menu Configuration - Preferences - Inventory.
Check "Unlimited ingredients/components propagation" option.
Press OK.

Then go to menu Configuration - Menu Items.

Level 2:
Add item: fresh tomato.
On Inventory tab:
Is Sales Item = NO
Is Purchase Item = YES
Is Stock Item = YES
Add other level 2 items like: olive oil, basil leaves, flour

Level 1:
Add item: red sauce.
On Inventory tab:
Is Sales Item = NO
Is Purchase Item = NO
Is Stock Item = NO
On ingredients tab add: fresh tomato and other level 2 items.
Add other level 1 items like dough.

Level 0:
Add item: pizza.
On Inventory tab:
Is Sales Item = YES
Is Purchase Item = NO
Is Stock Item = NO
On ingredients tab add: red sauce (level 1 items) or olive oil (level 2 items).
Add similar way other level 0 items.

It's important to now that using this approach level 1 items are not stock items. They will be not displayed on Inventory On Hands report or on menu Configuration - Physical Inventory.
