In the most simple scenario, after creating a sales order line, you would just like to create the full hierarchy, meaning not configuring bill of materials through down the hierarchy, but just creating the hierarchy, so you just enter the configurator, selecting create production order, and it creates the top level production order, and after that it will automatically suggest to create and refresh the hierarchy, and you can just press okay to that, and it unfolds the underlying orders, in this example five underlying orders.

This means we have now created the order hierarchy, and it’s possible to start working on that.

Of course, you would have to go into those specific orders and print them and send the orders to the purchaser, or the vendors, etc.
