Once you have created the order hierarchy from the sales order with the function create production order and order hierarchy that is called automatically, it will create the order hierarchy and you can view it from here.

So, this is the orders that were made and on the order, it has a reference number that refers to the sales order.

But it’s also possible from here to show or hide the components and by components we mean the extra components on the production order and purchase order, which is not part of the hierarchy items.

This is the City Bike have a bill of material on indentation level one.

So, in this scenario we have the front wheel, and we have the back wheel as the only two items on the City Bikes bill of material, which are made as configurable hierarchy items.

If we show or hide documents, we will add several other one level items, meaning this are all the remaining items on the bill of material on the top-level City Bike.

Likewise, if you look at item number 1100, it has on level two, two configurable items, purchase item and a configurable production item.

Now be aware because this production item here has on level three, two other purchase items, which are not configurable and on level two now, meaning the remaining parts of the bill of material on the front wheel.

So, if you view now the front wheel is indentation level one, everything below that one, that is the figure two is the bill of material for that order and then we have another, the back wheel is a parallel item, so to speak, on level one, which includes the components that are marked two, meaning here and here.

And again, the level three item down here relates to the backup.

So, you need to understand this hierarchy, of course, and you can unfold and fold the documents.

So, the reason or the point of course is that all the components not part of the hierarchy are just bought normally to stock.
