User Manuals › Production › How to create Production Order from Customer Order?
Handling existing released Customer Order, You can create new Production Orders for one or more selected Customer Order Lines using corresponding option from Context Menu. Using the additional dialog, You can also activate or deactivate some additional options:
- By default, the Production Orders will be created not only for explicitly selected Customer Order Lines, but also for related semi-products (Components with own Product Structures marked by “Separate Product” Boolean flag). In such case, the new unique Order Number with Release = '1' will be generated for Production Order created for Part specified at the original Customer Order Line (the Wanted Delivery Date from original Customer Order Line will be used as Due Date for Production Order). The Production Orders for semi-products will have the SAME Order Number and Releases = '2', '3', '4' etc. If You don’t need to create Production Orders for semi-products, just switch off “Create orders for semi-products” check box.
- If the possibility to create Production Orders for semi-products is activated, then free (not reserved) available quantity of semi-products will be taken into account to calculate corresponding Ordered Quantity for such Orders. If You prefer to create Production Orders for semi-products using only original demand from the original Customer Order Line and ignoring available stock, just switch off “Consider free quantity of semi-products in stock” check box.
The list of Production Orders, connected to the particular Customer Order Line, can be open directly from "Customer Order" details form. The “Production Order” details form can be open for each Production Order, created against particular Customer Order Line. This form can be used to review or change Production Order details in accordance with it's current Status.
