It does provide full traceability if you use the "Generate Shop Order"
flag in Item/Facility Planning Master. This automatically generates top
level shop orders as an automatic consequence of accepting the customer
order for that item(s), and is cross-referenced back to it. It is then
possible, according to the same setting for sub-assembly items, to
generate multi-level shop orders down to the required level, all
cross-referenced to parent shop order and original customer order, and
complete with an enquiry to allow full visibility of the generated tree.
There will be some differences to your current working practice as the
comon reference all the way through here is the originating customer
order but I would not see that as a problem. MRP may be used alongside
this routine for batch production items.
