Need some "enlightment" on Production Order process/flow

Hi, let's say we have a Sales Order for 10 quantity of Item ABC (need to be assembled from parts). In our situation: we might not have enough parts to build all, and the Sales Order qty might change. Also: we're doing Backflush.

Right now this is what we're doing:

  1. Create Production Order when we're ready to build eg. x qty (set the Planned qty = x).
  2. Set it to Released
  3. Report Completion (ie. Receipt from Production).
  4. Close the Production Order.
  5. If we're done with all qty in the Sales Order: Close/Invoice it.

We do that until all ordered qty are assembled.

Can anybody advise if this below is better:

  1. Create Production Order for full 10 quantity
  2. Set it to Released
  3. Whenever we're ready to assemble: do Receipt from Production with the qty we're going to assemble.
  4. After we've assembled all: Close the production order and close/invoice the Sales Order.

The pros that I can think of:

  • Only have 1 Production Order

The cons:

  • Need to keep track how many we've assembled (in order to do step 4 or not).

Any thoughts?

    The second option sounds a lot better. The con is minimal. With a simple alert and query, you can have finished production orders pop up, once or several times a day, to go through and close them.
