Ability to trigger an Auto-Assembly when doing fulfillment instead of when the sale order is created

started a topic over 2 years ago

Some businesses do not want to allocate stock to an assembly until the fulfillment part of their workflow. They do not want to be required to manually complete an auto-assembly for each fulfillment they do, preferring to have DEAR dynamically do the assembly for them upon fulfillment.

It would be good to have an option to tell DEAR to do auto-assemblies upon fulfillment as opposed to sale order authorization.  This could be at a DEAR General Settings level.

  • Agree. Auto-Assemblies need some additional settings as I am sure people use these in different ways. 

    We are a food manufacture and packer. We store all product in bulk and assemble to order. The Auto-assemblies are great but we need more control over using them. 

  • Hello everyone,

    The logic here will have to be changed in order to accommodate this and it might not be possible.

    I will make the team aware of this again and see what can be done.

  • HI Yohan

    Please look at this in great detail. If this is being considered. PLEASE consider the ability to have a setting in GENERAL SETTINGS or elsewhere where the user can set if and when auto-assemplies are created in the sales process. 

    The ability to turn trigger the assembly at different stages or to not trigger the assemblies at all. 

    Auto-generating of assemblies is ok but also the ability to not auto assembly to not necessarily be at the complete stage.

    Anything you can do to make auto assemblies more reflective of reality and how it would be used in a real business making real products would be an incredible help. 

    This is critical to our business. 

  • This has been a huge headache for our business as well.  Did DEAR ever follow up on this with anyone on plans to implement something in the future?

  • Hi Yohan,

    Please think about the solution may be like this:

    - Auto-generating assemblies at Sale order authorization but allow user using DEAR VMS app on PDA can re-do assemblies part by scan assembled items and Bin (jus transfer assembled items back to the Bin allocate in Sale order phase and get new assembled items scanned).

    Thank you
