A Production Assembly Order – refers to an order issued by a company to produce specific quantities of particular products at a particular time by assembling a bill of materials.
Make sure you create the Bill of Material to produce and all of its components before creating an assembly order.

Overhead and labor cost
Assembly overhead and labor costs enable you to enter associated external costs to your components when you are building the final product.
These costs could include:

The Related Orders functionality allows you to link other orders to the production order. This is very useful in back-order situations where creating a link between a sale order and a production order can easily help you navigate from one order to the other.
To start production:
- Set Production Type to Assembly
- Set the order Location
- Set the Quantity to produce
- Set the wastage stock
- Click on Start Production
The Start production operation will set the order status to InProduction. This operation will also allocate the required stock of the finished product to disassemble.
Make sure the bill of material parts have enough stock to start production
To complete a production order:
- Set the order Yield Quantity
- Click on Complete
The Complete production operation will set the order status to Completed. This operation will:
- Free the allocations performed on the components earlier when the order was set to In Production
- Reduce the components stock on hand
- Increase the finished product stock on hand
- Update the finished product moving average cost value to account for extra labor cost if any
Cancellation of Assembly product orders is not supported at the moment.
