Autocreating Configuration Items Trigger: Concept
Once you have entered and scheduled a sales order for an assemble-to-order model, Bills of Material automatically defines a new, unique configuration item complete with a bill of material and routing (based on the model primary bill and primary routing) for every non-phantom model in your configuration. To autocreate a configuration item based on an order number, enter the order number in the Parameters page. Otherwise skip the Sales Order Number field. Configured BOMs and routings are created in the organizations according to the following settings:
• •

Model item attribute: Create Configured Item, BOM. BOM Parameter: Config BOM Creation Allowed. If this parameter is unchecked, then the BOM and routing are not created for the configured item in this organization, even if the configuration BOM and routing creation is eligible according to the model item attribute Create Configured Item, BOM. Sourcing rules set up for the model item in the default assignment set. Sourcing rules for the model item are referred by the concurrent program if the model item attribute Create Configured Item, BOM is set to either BOMs based on Sourcing or Items based on Model, BOM based on Sourcing. Option-specific sourcing for the model item and options. Configuration BOM and routing creation is performed only in those organizations that are defined as valid organizations in the option specific sourcing set up for the combination of model and options. Whether the BOM and routing exist for the model item in the organization. If the model BOM and routing do not exist in the organization, then the configured BOM and routing are not created. Even if the model routing exists without a bill of material, the BOM and routing are not created for the Configured item.

In this topic, you will autocreate configuration items.
