You will see this screen by clicking Generate suborders at the the production order entry screen. For more information, see Creating and maintaining production orders. At this screen, you can generate suborders for the selected production order line in the corresponding parent production order.
A production order is a request to manufacture products that are linked to a Bill of Materials (BOM) and may be triggered by a sales order, project, or an internal use request. A suborder is a production order that is linked to a parent production order with subassembly items. A suborder can be created only if the parent production order is already authorized and when no suborder is created yet for the corresponding items defined in the selected production order line. Once the suborder is generated, the parent production order will need to be authorized again. Authorizing the parent production order automatically authorizes the linked suborder.
Note: Authorization of production orders and hence suborders, is mandatory only if you select the Production order check box in the Authorize section of Manufacturing settings. For more information, see Manufacturing settings.
Select this check box to generate a separate suborder for the remaining subassembly items. For example, the batch size of a subassembly item is 15 and a production order requires 10 items with a wastage of 10% from the required items, which is equivalent to 1. Therefore, the total quantity required by the production order is 11. Therefore, clicking this check box will create a separate suborder for the remaining 4 items.
Select this check box to display the suggestions for stock-controlled subassembly items.
Suggested quantity = Quantity of item required + Percentage of wastage from the required item
Therefore, if a production item requires 10 items,
Suggested quantity = 10 + 10% x 10 = 11

The check mark in this column indicates that the corresponding version of subassembly items are the main versions. This information cannot be edited.
This column displays the codes of the warehouses linked to the corresponding subassembly items. This information cannot be edited.
This column displays the quantity of the corresponding subassembly items. This information cannot be edited.
This column displays the unit of measurement defined for the corresponding subassembly items, if any. This information cannot be edited.
This column displays the availability of stock for the corresponding subassembly item whereby “!” denotes that the stock is available, whereas a blank cell denotes otherwise. This information cannot be edited.
Available stock = Current stock – Planned deliveries + Planned receipts
Planned receipts <> 0
Select this column to generate suborder(s) for the item(s) in the selected production order line.
Type a number to generate suborder(s) for the corresponding level of subassembly item(s). For example, typing “0” will generate suborders for all levels of subassembly items that exist within the BOM of the item in the parent production order. Typing “1” will generate suborders only for the first level of subassembly item(s). By default, “0” is displayed.
Click this to confirm generating suborders for the corresponding item(s).
Note: Once clicked, the error message, "No stock allocation between back to back order lines with different warehouse" will be displayed if the corresponding stock allocation is between different warehouses. Click OK on the warning screen to proceed with generating the orders without performing the stock allocation or Cancel to stop generating the orders.
Click this to cancel generating the suborder(s).
