This article gives a short overview for creating a Product Recipe for a product with no variants. If you have enabled variants for a product, you can create specific recipes for each product variant. Read more detailed instructions for creating variant-specific recipes.

Step 1 - Navigate to a Product Recipe on a product card

Product Recipe can be created for a product on a product card. Navigate to the "Items" screen, select "Products" tab from the top of the table and click on a product you wish to edit. Find a Product Recipe tab next to the General Info tab.

Step 2 - Add ingredients and quantities to the Product Recipe

Material or product (required) - you can select existing materials and products (i.e. subassemblies) to the Product Recipe or create new items by entering the item name and selecting "Create new: [item name]" from the drop-down menu. Read more about Creating a new material or product.

Quantity - insert a quantity used to manufacture one unit of the product. Unit of Measure for a product or material is set on the item card.

Stock Cost - a calculated field, which cannot be manually edited. Stock Cost = Average Cost of Item in Stock * Quantity. If the "In stock" quantity for a material is zero and, thus, there is no Average Cost, then a default Purchase Price of a material or manufacturing cost for a subassembly is used in Stock Cost calculations.

The Product Recipe defined on the Product card will be added to the Manufacturing Order by default. Katana enables you to record waste of ingredients created in manufacturing or account for varying amounts of ingredients in the production process if it's different from your default values. If you used more or fewer ingredients in production that is defined in the product recipe, you can edit the quantities for ingredients on the Manufacturing Order. These changes are not applied to the default Product Recipe defined on the product card.
