Transferring WIP stock

Work in progress stock refers to items that are no longer found in normal stock, but rather is being used to make something intended for selling, in other words, it's stock being used on production orders.

Thus you transfer normal stock to WIP stock, specifically for a production order for something that is being made with the items you are transferring to get to an end product.

This process usually goes hand in hand with a bill of material that has been created for the end product.
