Parts are created in the Management Module and added to orders or estimates in the Sales Module. Parts are the basic building blocks of a product and are typically items that can be sold on their own, such as a banner. Parts can be tangible (.040 aluminum) or non-tangible (installation). Multiple Parts can be combined during order entry in the Sales Module to create a more complex Product. An example of this might be a 13 oz. banner as the first Part and two aluminum posts as additional Parts. All three items together equal a Product.
