Draft PO creation not triggered by sale of product with Make to Order procurement method

We created a product and set the procurement method to "Make to Order" at which time OpenERP help text appears as follows:

When you sell this product, OpenERP will trigger a draft purchase order to buy the required quantities to the supplier. The delivery order will be ready after having received the products.

We cannot find a draft purchase order in the system anywhere. Supply Method is set to "Buy" in case that matters. Any guidance here would be appreciated!

add at least one supplier on your product.

Does the product have a Supplier?

Are you running the Scheduler?

Check Warehouse --> Schedulers --> Procurement Exceptions after you run the Scheduler to see messages related to problems in your configuration that are preventing the creation of a draft Purchase Order (Quotation).


The products that make up the assembly did not have a supplier specified. Thank you.
