How to create work order without routing in Sage X3

By | January 28, 2022

A Work order is an order to make one or more products. Conventionally, the work order uses a bill of materials (BOM) to create a list of materials to be issued, and a routing to make a list of operations to be performed on work centers. Work orders dictate what product need to be manufactured, what raw materials are going to be required to manufacture the product, and which work center that the product needs to pass through in the manufacturing process.

Basically, work order uses a bill of materials (BOM) to create a list of materials to be issued, and a Routings to make a list of operations to be performed on work centers. An operational routing defines the formalization of the steps required for a manufactured product (finished or semi-finished). Its production process, as well as the sequencing of the operations to be completed. In Standard Sage X3 user can create a work order without routing code with the help of below steps.
