I have this article which contains a BOM within its BOM. This article
is anticoolant. The main BOM is a bottle ,a lit a label and the
mixing, the mixing is also a BOM , a BOM made of water , parfum and
So when I start the order planning, the system will obviously tell me
in case any item is missing that I need to order it ( that is for the
lit, bottle and label) or to produce it ( this is for the mixing) .
In case I dont have the mixing in stock , Navision will let me know
that I have to produce it , then I´ll have to start a production order
for producing the mixing , and the system will check again -in order
planning- if all materials that make up this mixing ( water, alcohol
and parfume) are in stock.
My question is: in case I want to produce a bottle of anticoolant
and the only item missing is alcohol, can the system tell me right away
that I need first to order alcohol in order to produce the mixing?
instead of telling me that I need to produce the mixing, and then
telling me that in order to do so I need to order alcohol?
Thanks in advance
