You can automatically create discrete jobs for configurations that you must begin assembling within the number of days you specify. Work in Process offsets the scheduled ship date for each configuration item ordered through the workday calendar. Work in Process uses the fixed and variable lead time for the configuration item to compute a work order release date for each sales order and loads discrete jobs for sales orders whose release date is within the number of days you specify. You can minimize the impact of sales order changes by delaying the work in process job components requirements explosion as long as possible.
