How to: Generate Subcontracting Orders

To generate subcontracting orders, you must create a release production order for each item to be subcontracted that is listed in the BOMs. The BOM is a list of the raw materials, subassemblies, subcomponents, components, and parts, and the quantities of each part needed to manufacture an end product. To manufacture a single end product, the items in the BOM may include any one of the following:

  • A non-excisable item

  • An excisable item

  • A capital item

For more information about releasing production orders, see Releasing Production Orders Automatically. To generate subcontracting orders, you must also associate the work center with a subcontracting number. For more information, see How to: Set Up Subcontracting.
