Automatic creation of Sub-Contract Purchase Orders

  • 1.  Automatic creation of Sub-Contract Purchase Orders

    Hopefully a simple one but I cannot find the solution. I have configured our AX2012 R3 application so that a Sub-Con PO is automatically created for any work that goes out to a sub contractor.

    The challenge is that at the moment the PO is being created at the point the Works Order is being started e.g Picking List is printed off. We would rather that the PO was created when the Stores team Post the picking list as that is when the raw materials are moved from Stores to the shopfloor.

    To explain alittle more, we make and assemble parts that may not be delivered until 3 to 6 months after the Works Order has been created and therefor the SubCon work may not be needed for 2 or 3 months time. It would be better if the PO was created at time of Picking List being posted then when the Works Order is generated and started​.

    Hope this makes sense but if you need more information then let me know.
