    Hi Amr,

    I hope that you must have decided using Formula not BOM as per business needs due to cost distribution and implications. Do you also produce co-products and by-products from your FG "Rough-Interlock"? And what about your Raw materials, Did you defined them as % or Qty.? I just wanted to know, Was there a really need of defining formula and why not BOM.

    as Ludwig mentioned there are two types of orders in the production module.

    • If you create a „formula“ on the item you have to create a „batch oder“ in production.
    • If you create a „BOM“ you have to create a „production order“

    on item level you have to set the field „ Production type“ accordingly. Based on this setup you can create a BOM or a formula on item level.

    Did you create a 'production order' or a 'batch order'?

    I would expect the latter one if you have a formula based item.

    Best regards,
