On the Item Card, the Config. to Order FastTab includes the fields that are specific to COSMO Discrete Manufacturing.
Config. to Order FastTab
The fields on this FastTab are described in the following table.
|Description 2 – Description 5||Additional description fields, each holds up to 50 characters.|
|Main Location Code||Main location code of the item. If a location code is filled in, the system will copy it when the item is inserted into the following documents:
- Master BOM Line
- Document BOM Line
- Construction Order Line
- Sales Line (Quotes, Orders, etc.)
- Purchase Line (Quotes, Orders, etc.)
- Production Order Components
- Service Item Worksheet
- Requisition and Planning Worksheet
|Part Type||It is necessary to mark the part type when the parts have to be manufactured specifically for this order (Production) and to be included in supply planning (Standard or Purchase). The options are:
- Standard: The BOM of this assembly group are for informational purposes only. In the Document BOM, the Information Line check box is selected. The components of this assembly group are not included in supply planning.
- Production: This option is only possible for assembly groups. If an item is set up with this option, the Replenishment Method changes automatically to Prod. Order. With this option, the components of this assembly group are used in supply planning. In the Document BOM/Construction Order line, the Information Line check box is selected.
NOTE: For the Production part type, the item must have a Master BOM. When using the standard Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central production BOM, this option is irrelevant.
- Purchase: Same as Part Type = Standard except that if the Status of a Document BOM and/or Construction Line is changed to Released, a new Variant Code gets inserted to the Variant Code field in the BOM line.
|Separate Prod. Order||Determines if a separate production order will be created for this item.|
|Spare Part||Determines if the item is a spare part. This information is retained in the master and Document BOMs. In the service item, parts list components with this identification can be copied into the service item components.|
|Wear Part||Determines if the item is a wear part. This information is retained in the master and Document BOMs. In the service item, parts list components with this identification can be copied into the service items components.|
|Base Material||Identifies the assignment of a Base Material to the item. The Base Material will be used for the work package (see Work Packages).|
|Long-Lead Item||Identifies items that need a longer time to be delivered or produced.
This field is passed from the Item during processing and is shown as a FlowField in the following documents: Master BOM Line, Production BOM Line, Document BOM, Construction Line, Planning Component, Prod. Order Component, and Requisition Line. Choosing the value in this field opens the Items list, filtered on the item, regardless if the value is Yes or No.
|Separate Delivery||Indicates whether this item is set up for separate shipment. This setting is copied from the Item Card to the BOM and the production order where it can be changed as needed.|
|Full Text||Displays the complete text of all description fields (1–5) by joining these values together. This field is not editable.|
|Discontinued Item||Indicates if this is a discontinued item (see Discontinued Items).|
|Replacement possible from||If a date is entered in this field, the replacement of the discontinued item will occur by this date, at the earliest (see Discontinued Items).|
|Substitutes Exist||Indicates if a substitute item has been assigned to this item using standard Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central substitution functionality. A replacement must be assigned to use the discontinued item functionality (see Discontinued Items).|
|Prototype||Indicates if this is a prototype item.|
|Prototype Type||Identifies the type of prototype that the program will use when it creates a new prototype item. The options are:
- Item: Select this option if the item will be copied into a new prototype item.
- Variant: Select this option if a new item variant should be created only.
|Prototype No. Series||Identifies the number series used for items and/or variants created from this prototype item.|
|Created from Prototype||Identifies the originating prototype item number that this item was created from.|
|Prototype BOM Type||Indicates if the prototype was created from a Document BOM or Construction Order.|
|Prototype BOM No.||Identifies the Document BOM or Construction Order number from which the prototype item was created.|
|Checklist Template Exists||Indicates if a checklist template exists for the item. If you choose the Yes value, the related checklist template will open or a list of checklist templates if multiple ones were created for the item.|
|Master BOM Exists||Indicates if a master BOM exists for the item. If you choose the Yes value, the related master BOM will open or a list of master BOMs if multiple ones were created for the item.|
|KANBAN||Indicates if this item has been set up for Kanban processing (see Item Setup).|
The following sections explain the actions on the Actions menu that are specific to COSMO Discrete Manufacturing.
Functions Menu, Copy Item
On the Functions menu, choose the Copy Item action to create an item from an existing item. In the Copy Item page, either a target item number is entered or a number from a number series is produced automatically. At the bottom of the Copy Item page, three areas from COSMO Discrete Manufacturing are listed in the Configure to Order FastTab. The selected areas, along with all others, will be copied from the source item to the new item.
Functions Menu, Search & Replace Item
On the Functions menu, choose the Search & Replace Item action to find and replace items in the following documents:
- Master BOM Template
- Document BOMs
- Construction Order
- Service BOM
- Production BOM
- Production Order Component
- Production Structure
The fields/field groups on this dialog box are described in the following table.
|Search Item No.||Indicates the item to be found and displays the item description below.|
|Replace with||Identifies the item number that the searched for item is to be replaced with. If the same item number in the Search Item No. field is entered in this field, then the item with master data relating to orders is overwritten based on the fields selected in the Overwrite Fields area.
This functionality is useful because all selected item data is replaced in the documents. For example, if you need to change the Description 5 field on an item, you don’t have to change all documents manually.
|Search & Replace in||In this field group, choose the documents to be included in the item search and replace process. Turning on or off the All Tables toggle will turn on or off the other toggles. Turning on or off the Master BOM, Document BOM, Construction Line, Production BOM, and Production Structure toggles make the related sections below active or inactive.|
|Master BOM||Defines how the system is to behave with changes to the Master BOMs.|
|Version Management||Specifies which Master BOM Versions should be changed or if a version should be created. The options are:
- Create New Version: A new version of the Master BOM is to be added.
- Change Actual Version: The current BOM version is to be changed.
- Change All Versions: The exchange in all BOM versions is made.
|Change Status||Determines if the status of the changed Master BOM should be set to a predefined status or if the status should remain at its current state.|
|Status After Change||Defines which status the Master BOM will have after the exchange and/or change of items. The options are New, Certified, Under Development, and Closed.|
|Doc. BOM / Construction Line||Only Status = Open||Determines if approved Document BOMs and construction orders can be changed.
NOTE: If Document BOMs and construction orders are to be included in supply planning (as defined in the Configure to Order Setup page), purchase orders or production orders may have been already created for these lines. The Item Search & Replace function does not examine whether document lines, which should be replaced, have been created.
|Production BOM||Defines how the system is to behave with changes to the Production BOMs.|
|Version Management||Specifies which Production BOM Versions should be changed or if a version should be created. The options are:
- Create New Version: A new version of the Production BOM is to be added.
- Change Actual Version: The current BOM version is to be changed.
- Change All Versions: The exchange in all BOM versions is made.
|Change Status||Determines if the status of the changed Production BOM should be set to a predefined status or if the status should remain at its current state.|
|Status After Change||Defines which status the Production BOMs will have after the exchange and/or change of items. The options are New, Certified, Under Development, and Closed.|
|Production Structure||Change Status||Determines if the status of the changed Production Structure should be set to a predefined status or if the status should remain at its current state.|
|Status After Change||Defines which status the Production Structure will have after the exchange and/or change of items. The options are New, Under Development, and Closed.
NOTE: The Certified option is available but is not allowed for production structures.
|Overwrite Fields||Fields turned on in this group will be overwritten for the items on the selected document(s) during the Item Search & Replace function. Turning on or off the All Fields toggle will turn on or off the other toggles.|
After choosing the OK button, a page opens that lists all the lines that would be changed. You can select individual lines to exclude and delete them using the standard Delete Line function. Choose the OK button to complete the replace function of the remaining lines.
The Service BOM document has no special status change option in the Item Search and Replace page. Choosing this option will search and can replace active and inactive items in the Service BOM.
