The activities associated with receiving the request to create a Project Order Or Work Order required to schedule and execute the Engineer-to-Order Make activities. Engineer-to-Order processes require a Project Order Or Work Order linked specifically to an order in the Deliver process (generally the Customer Order).
This is a Engineer-to-Order process; Demand is not aggregated, each individual Order (Sales Order or Stock Transfer Order) results in a unique Project Order*. Creation of the order may include creating new item numbers, Bills-Of-Materials and other order-specific data. Planning and scheduling primarily focus on meeting dates promised to customers and availability of materials, secondarily optimizing throughput (capacity utilization) and efficiency.
For configurable products the Create Project Order process typically includes one or more new (read: custom) item numbers on Bill Of Materials. The Create Order (M201) Bill Of Materials consists of standard item numbers only.
