Click Production control > Common > Production orders > All production orders. Select a production order. On the Action pane, on the Production order tab, in the Maintain group, click Split.

Use this form to split a production order into two or more production orders. These production orders can have different delivery dates than the original.

  • You can only split production quantities that have the status Created, Estimated, Scheduled, or Released.

  • When you split a production, the original production, and referenced derived productions and purchases are rescheduled. This is performed by using forward scheduling. It will start at the actual scheduled start time. The new split productions are scheduled using backward scheduling. They will start on the date that is calculated by counting backward from the assigned delivery time.

  • The maximum quantity that you can split is the quantity that has not yet started in production.

  • The status and quantity available on derived productions and purchases is checked before the split is performed. You will be unable to split a production if the whole quantity of a derived production has already been started, or if a derived purchase has already been registered in total.
