Updated: January 28, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Product builder configuration supports single and multiple site environments and organizations that have not set up multiple sites. You have the option to create bills of materials (BOM) and route versions with the Product Builder configuration process.

NoteNote

This information applies only to Product builder.

When you enter a transaction using a Product Model enabled item, you can enter the site ID or accept the default site ID. The following tables describe how the default site ID is determined for each type of transaction.

For example, if there is a sales order line where the site ID field is blank in the Customers form, the site ID from the Released products form is used. If there is no site ID in the Released products form, the fallback warehouse in the Inventory and warehouse management parameters form is used.
