One of the paradigms in the Sales Configurator is the ability to distinguish between items that are part of a hierarchy item that we need to handle in hierarchies and items that we just need to produce to stock.

So, these are all the orders built from the hierarchy, but if I view the full bill of material, there will be other items like this which are not in the hierarchy, meaning we didn’t do specific purchase orders for this item or specific production order for other items and that’s because those items are just bought to stock or produced to stock in whatever replenishment methodology.

So, with this functionality we are able to handle all the manual checkmarked items and it’s set up with a checkmark on the item in SKU card.

We can handle those manually in the hierarchies and we can handle all the other items just by replenishing with normal MRP or requisition worksheet or however we normally replenish.
