MO Generator creates a set of Manufacturing Orders for a parent item and all make-to-stock sub-assemblies below the parent. The Start Date of each sub-assembly is offset by the calculated run-time so that the components are produced into inventory before the upper level MO starts. For a make-to-order environment with complex assemblies, MO Generator saves a significant amount of time, and reduces errors, over manually creating and scheduling each MO for a parent item and all of its sub-assemblies.
MO Generator also has an Excel Import utility which can be used to bring in a list of items to be made, such as might be generated from an external planning software package. Create a forecast or production plan outside of GP for the top-level items. Import the Item, Quantity and Required Date, and MO Generator creates and schedules an MO for each item in the spreadsheet, along with the MOs for all of the needed sub-components.
MO Generator has an optional integration to SOP-to-MOP (the Manufacturing Series Sales Item Detail window), which initiates MO Generator automatically when a new MO is created from Sales Order Processing.
