In v7, there seems to have been major changes made to how different parts are classified. There are no longer fields indicating whether parts are purchased or whether production orders are allowed on parts. This creates a bit of a problem when creating non Multi-Level BOM based material requests through the production planning tool. In these situations, it creates material requests for each part, even if there is a BOM associated with one of the parts. This would be great if you could switch the material request to manufacture for those items that you want to create additional production orders for, you can’t because the are submitted.
Any suggestions on how to get around this? If I create multi-level BOM material requests, all the raw materials will get ordered correctly but no production orders or material requests for manufacture will get created for the lower level BOM assemblies.
