If you go for the achievement near the end of the game (it has to be done before the final boss fight) you might have problems finding enough enemies with the required materials.

Therefore I suggest visiting Arcadia -> Farmer's Market -> Silverwing Apiary where the bees are located. Activate the smoke in order to prevent the bees from attacking you and search the hives. Everytime you press "A" on a hive a Splicer will spawn. Kill all of them until the smoke disappears and collect their materials. Repeat until you have enough materials to create 100 items at an U-Invent-Station.

Make sure you have these Gene Tonics equipped:

- Clever Inventor (will reduce the number of all components required to invent an item by 1, down to a minimum of 1. )
[Received at research level four for Thuggish Splicers. ]

- Scrounger (will enable the player to search a corpse again for new loot. In addition to giving the player a chance to find more valuable loot, this also will help them find the right components when trying to invent a particular item.)
[Acquired from the second-to-last gift given by the Little Sisters for rescuing them.]

Note: Prolific Inventor (doubles the quantity of an item produced using the same number of components) won't help you unlock this achievement since it requires you to "perform" 100 inventions instead of creating 100 items (the achievement description is slightly wrong).

Hope that helps!
