With the extra module Order to production an order can be sent directly to production. Prerequisite for this is that the bill of materials has been marked as a production item.
App Center > Order to Production
Although the Order to Production module exists, it does not have its own interface. The module is represented by an extra option in a specific purchase order's Action menu:
Select continue as production
All parts lists that are to be transferred from the purchase order to a production are to be marked as production items beforehand under Item > Details.
After installing the Order to production module, a new entry will appear in the action menu of the purchase order:
Purchase Order Overview > Action > Continue as production
This option is to be selected. If there are bills of materials in the purchase order items that are marked as production items, you will be asked to confirm that they should be continued as production.
After clicking the OK button, you will be asked to confirm that the production should be released. Otherwise, the new production will be created as a draft.
If there are several bills of material in one purchase order that are also are marked as production items, a separate production is created for each bill of material.
Sub-BOMs are not created as their own production, but "explode" in the same production as the main BOM item.
