The Manual Entry section of the window is used to manually run the Create Child MOs utility for a single item. It will create an MO for the parent item entered here, and then MOs for all of the subassemblies.
See the Core Utilities: Create Child MOs chapter for more detail.
Item Number: Enter the top-level Item Number. An MO will be created for this Item, and then the Create Child MOs utility will run using that MO as the starting point.
BOM Type: select the BOM Type. By default this is MFG BOM, but any other valid BOM Type can be used.
BOM Name: If ARCH BOM or CONFIG BOM are selected, a BOM Name is required.
End Quantity: Enter the quantity of the Item to produce
Schedule Method: Select Forward Infinite to have the MO scheduled based on the Start Date and working forwards. Select Backward Infinite to have the MO scheduled based on the Due Date and working backwards.
See the Excluded Items chapter for information about how to keep Create Child MOs from processing certain items.
