I have a question regarding setting replenishment parameters on manufactured items' cards:
Let's say we are manufacturing Bikes. There are major five sub-assemblies like wheels, handles, Seats etc. We would like to manufacture these sub assemblies and stock. When a sales order comes in for a bike, we can pull the 5 sub assemblies and manufacture a custom red bike, tandem bike etc.
Final bike would be 'Make to Order'.
Five sub-assemblies would be 'Make to Stock'
What about the manufactured components that goes into making the sub-assemblies? Say, wheels require a special manufactured frame, we don't want to stock the frames but we want to make the frames when we are manufacturing wheels. Would that be MTS or MTO?
