How to Replace Component on work order – Method 1

By | November 11, 2016

When it is necessary to substitute components or material on a Work Order BOM, Sage X3 allows the replacement of components on a Work Order if the Product’s Routing allows it.

Following are the two methods for replacing a component with a substitution product

Method 1: Remove the original component

Method 2: Replace a component.


1. The WO should be in Creation/Save

2. The Work Order must be NOT ALLOCATED. If the Work Order is ALLOCATED, click on the Allocation button to DEALLOCATE the stock

Method 1:

Navigate: Manufacturing->Planning->Work Orders

1. Click on the Components TAB.

2. Right Click on the Component, which you wish to exclude.

3. Select Exclude Line. Notice the Line Status is now

4. Scroll down to the next blank line. Right Click on the Line Action button

5. Select–Add Unexpected Material.

Change Work Order Components

6. Fill in the Component Detail (here you can add alternate product)

7. Click OK.
