Outsourcing production orders

Menu path

Go to Manufacturing ➔ Entries ➔ Production orders, select a production order, click Open followed by Outsource.


The Outsource function can be used when an organization needs to outsource part of a production work to a supplier due to internal capacity limitation.

The prerequisites for outsourcing to be possible are:

  • Ensuring an outsource supplier is already created.
  • Ensuring a non-existent warehouse is created for use by the outsource supplier. This is to simulate the outsourcing order as a transfer with the supplier’s warehouse.
  • Ensuring that the appropriate hour and/or product items are created and set the appropriate supplier as the supplier for the item (by specifying it in the Purchase/Sales tab of the item card).
  • Ensuring that the outsource items can be stored in the non-existent warehouse (by specifying it in the Inventory tab of the item card).
  • Ensuring the item(s) is in the bill of material (BOM).
  • Creating, authorizing and processing a purchase order to purchase the labor hour from the supplier. This can be done by clicking Purchase in the relevant production order.
