Above we showed how to begin a Work Order to build product for Inventory in advance of requirement.
We'll now cover the other option - how to create a Work Order in response to a line on a customer order.

If the selected item is an assembly then the menu contains an option to create a new WorkOrder. When you select that option a window appears allowing to manage works orders connected to the selected assembly - see below
You can create any number of works orders - for example if you wish to complete the required quantity in smaller work orders over a longer time frame. In our example though we'll enter a quantity of 25 which is the quantity ordered by the customer.
To the left of each work order row is a small [>] arrow button. Click that to open to the Work Order/Bill of Materials window.
