Navigation: Setup >> Manufacturing >> MOGen Setup
Depending on what modules are registered, this window may be blank. Options only appear in this window if you are registered for them. These Setup options are Company-wide, so when activated, they affect all users when logged-in to the Company. The Setup Options on the MOGen window are user specific and pertain only to the User ID running utilities from the MOGen window.
Auto-Generate from SOP: If enabled, MOGen will automatically run the Create Child MOs utility after an MO has been created from Sales Transaction Entry. MOGen will pick-up the top-level MO and generate MO’s for all of the subassemblies.
After clicking the Generate MO button on Manufacturing Series Sales Item Detail window (or if MO’s are silently generated) you will be asked if you want to create MO’s for the subassemblies. If you answer YES, MOGenerator will launch and create the subassembly MOs. If no answer NO, subassembly MO’s will not be created.
If you accidentally click NO, open the Manufacturing Series Sales Item Detail window again, and click the OK button. MOGenerator will again check if there are subassembly MO’s for the MO and if not, it will prompt again to create them.
This also applies to MOs created by Sales Configurator.
Rebuild Picklist during Reschedule: This setting pertains to manual scheduling/rescheduling of MOs. It does not apply to the MOGen utility called “MO Scheduler”. There is a Rebuild Picklist option on the MOGen window that is used by MO Scheduler.
This setting has no effect unless Reschedule Child MOs is also marked. Rebuilding the Picklist causes MOGen to go back to the Bill of Materials and re-create the Picklist from the current BOM. If the Picklist is not rebuilt, rescheduling leaves it untouched—which means the original required date stays on the original components from when it was first built.
A scenario where you might not want to rebuild the picklist would be if the MOs are released and inventory is allocated, and then the MOs are changed back to Open so they can be rescheduled. In this case rebuilding the picklist would unallocate the inventory, so NOT rebuilding the picklist will keep the allocations.
Under most circumstances, Rebuild Picklist During Reschedule should be marked.
Reschedule Child MOs: If the top-level MO is rescheduled, MOGen will automatically reschedule all of the child (subassembly) MOs. This works from the Manufacturing Order Entry window (Schedule MO button), and from MO Generator when running the “MO Scheduler” utility. The MO Entry window can only reschedule an MO if it is Quote or Open, and has no financial activity recorded against it. The MO Scheduler utility can also reschedule Released MOs.
