To add changes to production quantities in a change event.
For companies using Procore's Project Financials and Workforce Management tools with the 'Procore Labour Productivity Cost' budget view, you can log additional production quantities and production hours associated with your change event line items in the 'Production Quantities' section of a change event.
Let's assume that after your project's budget is locked, the project owner requests a design change that is out of scope with the original design. The change requires additional drywall, so you first create a change event and add a line item to that change event for that drywall. If that change represents a change to production, you will also want to record that change in the 'Production Quantities' tab of the change event.
Once you record the production quantities in the change events, the values are updated in the Change Events view page. The production quantities may also be associated with any Main potential variation or Budget Change created from a Change Event. However, you must follow these steps: Create a Main Potential Variation from a Change Event.
After you have submitted your main contract variation to the owner for review, the owner can then approve or reject it. See Approve or Reject Main Contract Variations. When the status of the main contract variation changes to 'Approved', the updated production quantities are reflected in the 'Procore Labour Productivity Cost' budget view and the Field Production Report.

Production Quantities relate to contracts and the budget through a combination of sub job and cost code. Users may edit these fields when editing change events line items in the change events edit page. However, if the Production Quantities are associated with a Main potential variation or Budget Change, the Production Quantity will be locked unless unlinked from the change objects.
