Enhancements to the production order release process in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

When you release a BOM or formula line to the warehouse, the system first determines whether material is already available at the production input location on the shop floor where the material will be consumed for the production process.
• If the material is available at the production input location, then it’s picked from that location immediately after the signal is given for the release of material to the warehouse.
• If the material isn’t available at the production input location, then the material release indicates that material must be moved from locations in the warehouse to the production input location. The material is moved via warehouse work for raw material picking. Therefore, warehouse processes for raw material picking must be configured. For more information, see Replenishment and Control warehouse work by using work templates and location directives.

Configure the release of BOM and formula lines so that it occurs as part of the release of a production order or batch order. Alternatively, control the release either by a batch job or as a manual interaction.

The method that is used to release BOM and formula lines is controlled by the Production line release parameter. You can find this parameter at Production control > Setup > Production parameters.

If you release materials by using the On production order release parameter setting, then when you do a manual release, you have two options for controlling the material release:
•Release material per operation number.
•Release material in proportion to the amount of finished goods. You can release raw material for a partial quantity of finished goods . For example, a production order is created and scheduled for 1,000 pieces (pcs.). The shop floor supervisor is planning the production of 100 pcs. for the next shift and wants to release materials only for that shift. In this case, the supervisor can use the Quantity field to release materials for the 100 pcs. that are planned for the next shift.

•To release raw material in a specific unit, select Production control > Production orders > All production orders, select a production order, and then, on the Warehouse tab, select Release to warehouse. Then use the Unit field to select the unit of the finished good to release material in. The units that are available are defined in the unit sequence group ID of the finished good.
