This is not a rework Order. A rework order is used to make an item
from itself. In your case just create a W/O for B and set the status
to R. Even though there is no BOM you can still then go into the WO
and issue component A or C to the WO and then just receipt B

It is unclear from your question if there is any work performed to
convert A into B or if it is just your customer who orders
using part number B but really it is the same item as A so you
just need to have inventory of the part number so that you can pick
If there is work to convert A into B, then Phil's answer applies (or
another possibility with a skilled user (or wrap via QXtend) is
to use the reciept-backwards-explode fucntion menu 3.12 that will
allow you to receipt B and consum A in one transaction, no need
for a work order).
If there is no work to be done, and they are really different
identies for the same item, then items B does not need to
exist. Instead you should set up custmer-item cross references.
then when you enter B on the sale order (or quote), the customer-item
will lookup the intenral item code (A) and keep both on the
sales order/invoice. The pick list will prompt to pick A but the
shipping document/ASN and invoice will show the customer's item (B).

Dear Phill, Mark
Let me make this case clear.
- A is a finished goods
- B, C, D, etc. are also finished goods
- A can be used to produce B, then B can be used to produce C, C can
be used to produce D, etc.
- However, we do not allow to the reverse processes. We do not allow
to use D to produce C, B or A. We do not allow to use C to produce B
or A, etc.
- The user cannot set up BOM for such items because they are unforeseen.
- The user do not want to do unplanned transactions, so they choose
to create a REWORK work order to process these items.
- For example: To produce B:
· They create a R work order for B
· Then issue component A and other materials if required
· Next, to produce C, they create another R work order for
C, then issue component B and other materials if required, etc.
User Requirement: They want the system to automatically prevent users
from issuing D, C, B to produce A. The action is expected to be taken
at WO Component Issue step.
Do you have any solution for this case?
Thank you for your support.

OK Much clearer now. I assume that for example D already has a BOM
for regular production. But if required it can be made from C but no
other part.. I (AsI said earlier) would NOT use rework order as that
has an effect on accounting as well. What I would do is use 13.1 to
create a new BOM Code say "D-C" and then use 13.5 to set up
a BOM with D-C as the parent and C as the Component. you would then
use 13.15 to set up D-C as an alternate BOM for Parent D. Now on the
occasion that I need to make D from C I would just create a regular WO
for D but then enter D-C in the BOM Code field. You cannot restrict
someone issuing other parts during 16.10 but this way you would have
the bom set up quickly. You could also do the same for the routing as
I assume you would have a different routing if you make it from c
rather than regular production.
