    Make to Order means that the company does not manufacture to stock but to order specifications. This process involves SD, MM and PP so it would be a bit difficult to give you the entire configuration settings in one post.

    Please check this documentation:

    Make to Order without assembly processing-

     Production Order is generated from planned order.

     Make to order without assembly processing is characterized by the fact that materials are not available in the warehouse but produced especially for a particular sales order.

     An individual Customer requirement is generated from the sales order item and transferred to material planning.

     We can use material planning run to plan requirements, once this has been done production is carried out. The system returns the confirmed quantity and delivery date from production order to sales order.

     After the product has been manufacture, goods receipt is posted in the sales order stock which is a special stock, and which can only be used for a specific sales order.

    Make to Order with assembly processing-

     Production Order is generated from sales order (No need material planning run).

     The individual components for the final product have already been produced; we only need to assemble the component according to the customeru2019s requirement.
