Expand the capability of non-stock kits for sales orders

Most ERP systems provide a sales kit functionality.  Some simply explode the kit into sales orders lines.  Some offer the ability to keep the kit as a line but explode it for allocation, picking and shipment.  Some offer the ability to modify the kit components on the fly; e.g. to substitute an item of the kit.  The non-stock kit in Acumatica does not reduce availability of the components either as SO Prepared or SO Booked making it impossible for a user to know if a kit is short.

    Agree with this request and in addition if modifying the non-stock kits components on the fly the cost of the kit line should also be updated now that we have cost accruals for non-stock items in 2019 R2. The cost of the kit line should be the aggregate cost of its stock and non-stock item costs for a proper margin at the order and invoice level.

    The allocation of the stock components of a non-stock kits works well once the shipment is created. It just need to be expanded so that it works the same way when on a sales order with no shipment created.
