Quickbooks inventory - linked products - ingredients

I have a client that makes and sells items on his farm.  How can I get Quickbooks to know that when I'm running low on a products to track the ingredients it takes to make that product.  So before item A is running low it will say that you need to restock the items it takes to make product A.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What you want are inventory "kits" or "assemblies" which have SKU's for the parts as well as for the finished product.

Here is a QuickBooks support overview on Inventory Assemblies.
