Perpectual (continous) Manufacturing
SAP Business One requires production orders to be released before products can be taken into inventory, is there a way to keep a production order open for continous manufacturing?
We need help in setting up continous manufacturing jobs.

Not sure if this will help
but I use the be.as manufacturing add-on
in it you can set a "lot size" for production - so that if I create a Production Order for 1000 units and my lot size for production is 10 units - within the Production Order - it will automatically create 100 sub-work orders each with 10 units - and each can be given a different delivery date.
this I have used with companies who would set a single monthly or quarterly production order based on forecasts - and the system auto-divided it into sub-orders under the overall production order.
then we did full reciepts against each sub-order
other options would be the giant production order quantity - and partial receipts - but you lose a lot in capacity planning
just my thoughts
