When Will You Need This?
This is used when a batch of parts needs to be treated as individual parts for a segment of the process and a batch at other times. A single number will define the quantity to be included in the batch and the batch size.
The following model object will be used to create the individual parts of an order and subsequently group those parts in a single batch: Arrivals \ Creating Batch Arrivals.
