Items and Production Structures from Configurations
Items and Production Structures can be created from Sales Quote/Order lines and Construction Order headers using the Create Item & Prod. Structure function.
With this function, a new item gets created as a copy of the existing item, which replaces that item in the Sales document line/Construction Order header. Concurrently, a new Production Structure gets created, and depending on the setup in the Configure to Order Setup page, can be automatically certified with a new Routing/Production BOM.
Standard Business Process
Typically, a Checklist Template and Master BOM have been set up for an item configuration (typically a dummy item). When this item is entered in a Sales Quote, the standard COSMO Discrete Manufacturing processes are performed: the Checklist is completed, the Document BOM is created and calculations for pricing are made. Once the customer accepts the pricing, an order is created.
If this item configuration needs to be produced using COSMO Process Manufacturing functionalities, the Create Item & Prod. Structure function is run, a new Item is created along with a new Production Structure, and the dummy item in the sales line is replaced with the new item. At this point, all further processing is managed through COSMO Process Manufacturing, such as the definition of recipes within the Production Structure, the final creation of the Routing and Production BOM, and the production of the item.
Item and Production Structure from Manual Configuration
It is also possible to create an Item and Production Structure for a manually created Document BOM or Construction BOM using the Create Item & Prod. Structure function.
