Sub Work Orders

If you have an Assembly Product that has another Assembly as part of the Bill of Materials you can enable the creation of a Sub Work Order for the Sub Assembly Product.

1. Enable Auto Sub Work Orders for a Sub Assembly

Go to Warehouse Management > Products and open the Sub Assembly Product.

Click on the Bill of Materials tab and check the box for Create Sub-WO.

This will enable the Work Order for the Sub Assembly to be automatically created when the Parent Assembly Work Order is saved.

2. The Parent Assembly's Work Order.

With the Create Sub-WO option in the previous step enabled, the Sub WO column will already be checked for any Sub Assemblies that are part of the Parent Assembly's Recipe.

When the Parent Assembly's Work Order is saved AcctVantage will create a Work Order for the Sub Assembly. The creation of the Sub Work Order may take a few seconds to occur.

You can always check (or uncheck) the Sub WO column manually.
