The vendor production order can be created manually or automatically by putting an assembly or a mfg item in the BOM with line type "vendor".
We want a third way to create them: via firming of planned production orders. This is a more natural way in my view.
The buyers are responsible for these production orders, they will filter them out of the planned production orders , for example because the routing-id is intelligent and shows that it is outsourced labor.
Then the firming should allow an option to a vendor production order. This would be a very tiny adjustment of the logic.
THen in the PRoduction order grid we have a very easy way to filter these vendor production orders for the buyers, and the production supervisors can filter the vendor prod orders out.

Thank you for your feedback. Currently this is not in our roadmap; however, we are tracking it and if we get more feedback and votes, we may consider it in the future.

This would be great. Especially for pharma companies, where the whole production proces may be outsourced to a CMO, but the API still owned by the Pharma company.
