Hello!! I have a sub-assembly item in my Item Master for which I have set the default Material Request type as Manufacture. I assume this means that when my stock quantity falls below the reorder level, ERPNext will automatically generate a Material Request of the type I set (Purchase type if default type is set Purchase, for example).
6 days ago I set out to test this feature by increasing my inventory stock of that item from 0 to 20 and then reducing the stock from 20 to 0 with a reorder level of 6. It’s been 6 days so far and yet, I have seen no Material Request asking me to manufacture the said item when the reorder level has been reached. I even checked the Production Orders list to see if that Item had a production order generated but nothing there as well. Am I not understanding something fundamental here or is my Material Request automatically bugged? Has anyone tried this before? Can anyone suggest a step-by-step method to sucessfully generate a request?
Thanks & Regards,
