Here’s a simple example of creating a manufacturing order in GP. This will give you an idea of how the process works.
You will need two things in order to create a manufacturing order transaction:
1.) Bill of Material (For this example make the BOM a “Backflush” BOM)
Let’s make the routing first. Create a simple one that has one sequence. Navigate to: Cards >> Manufacturing >> Routings >> Routing Entry.
Look up your finished good item number.
Create a Routing Name.
When the Routing Header Creation screen comes up, check, “Primary Routing” and save.
Enter “100” for the sequence number.
Select a work center. If you don’t have any, they’re simple to create.
Save, and you’re done.
