Externally processed operation and planned order
When an operation is defined as externally processed, once the production order (from a planned order generated via MRP) is created, the purchase requisition for that operation is automatically generated. My question is if it is possible to generate the purchase requisition before generating the production order, I mean, with the planned order.
Although this external operation is defined in the routing, the planned order does not show it and it means that the purchase requisition is not generated.
In our scenario we want to convert the production orders as late as possible to have automatic changes in BOM, but if we do not convert the planned orders to production orders, we won’t have this purchase requisitions.
Is there any way to solve this?
