Manufacturing Outside Processing Functionality

Many of the Advanced Manufacturing clients use outside vendors to perform some of the production needs to complete their subassembly and finished goods for sale to their customers.  Currently on the Work Centers screen there is a checkbox for Outside Processing but it has no active functionality behind it.  I have attached a PDF that explains the current workaround but it would be more advantageous to have the functionality built in to perform necessary steps as well as combine all the outside processing to a vendor in one Purchase Order to allow for discounts on quantity for the user.

    We made some improvements to Outside Processing with 2019R2. I will take a look at the document that you provided to see if there are further improvements that we can make.

    Absolutely Required for manufacturing with outside processes.  In addition tying an outside process to the outside processing work center, a PO should also be able to tie to an item on the BOM.  If outside service functionality is added to Accumatica, the outside services dollars needs to be broken out on the totals tab.
