# Creating Formula Versions and Item Formulas for Batch Manufactured Items

### Formula Versions

If you require controlling the dates to use a formula or using **Percentage** as the Formula Management, create a Formula Version for each version.

Formula Versions can be created, viewed, or edited from the Parent Item.

### Item Formulas

Item Formulas are the ingredients that are used to create the parent item.

One Item Formula is defined for each ingredient used to create a parent item. You can create Item Formulas directly from the parent item or the Formula Version.

At a minimum, you must enter Component, Unit of Measure, and Per for each ingredient.

Other fields are optional.

### Formula Unit of Measure Consideration

You can define a Unit of Measure for your formula. For example, you may have a manufactured item in both EACH and CASE.

When configuring a formula for a Batch Manufactured Item, the ingredients' formula is based on the Default Batch Unit of Measure defined on the Item card.

If the Formula Management is *Percentage,* the ingredients' total Per (percentage) must be 100%.
