Build Items to Stock

Demand Planning

You now have the ability to flag certain items as “build to stock.” This will route job creation for this item to the demand planning section. If your site is configured to automatically generate jobs for every sales order line item, items with this flag will be excluded from that logic. Instead, the job for the stock items will be generated via the demand planning module.

Additionally, if an item is flagged as “build to stock” and is a subcomponent on a new job, the “to make” recommendation of that subcomponent will be set to 0, and a recommendation to make a new stock job will show up within the demand planning module.

This update is particularly useful when making customized subcomponents for an item. Items can now be created as “build to stock,” which will help keep the data our demand planning module needs clean and accurate.
