In our company we have products that can be manufactured by ourselves or bought to suppliers. The decision between manufacturing or buying a particular product can be made according to:
- Quantities available. If a quick order is confirmed and supplier product delivery not done yet, manufacturing can be done.
- When work load is too high and/or supplier cost lower the product can be bought
Two ways seems feasible to handle this but not completely satisfying:
- Creating 1 bom with bought product and 1 bom with manufactured product selected with a property ("buy" or "manufacture"). The problem is that properties are selected on the sales order only. And this decision has to be made by the manufacturing team only.
- Using both "buy" and "manufacture" routes. But how can the decision been made?
How would you handle this (common I would say) case?
