A quite frequent question – if the resources for the tasks execution are written off automatically? The common reply – no, they are not. Automatically they cannot be written off. It’s necessary to understand what we mean under “Write-off”. There are two operation modes – firstly to create a material and accessories requirement and to give the necessary parts before executing. But often it’s arranged in the other way. Especially for batch production and much less for mass production. In these cases the write-off is performed based on normative standards, i.e. according to standards indicated in engineering and manufacturing documents.  Actually the write-off operation is a creation of a collection with connection “Expenditure” and moving it to the status “Completed”. Usually the question is how to create the list of the components for such collection rapidly. The first way is manual. You need to create a collection with connection “Expenditure” and to put to its component block the actually spent resources specifying the numbers and unit of measure. Change the status to “Completed” and the materials will be written-off from the stock. All followed ways are automatically and based on “Creation of the collection by selected”. If you need to write-off by normative standards it will be easier to perform firstly the mode “Technology” for the total order or its part, and to select in the received collection the items necessary to be written-off. For these selected items you should create the collection with connection “Expenditure” and status “Completed”. You can select the items in the task, if you need to write-off the materials based on normative standards as the work moves forward or indicate the actually spent items in “Performance”.   

So you can write-off the resources completely for the total order or for its part, for specific planned task, for actually performed task. Of course you can combine all these ways.
