Improve the ability to track outside services in the production order.

Purchase orders need to be tied to a production order so that when an outside purchase is received, the dollars post directly to the Production order's Outside Service work center (for outside services) or BOM (for materials not purchased to stock).  Next step, break out outside services as a separate category on the production order's "TOTALs" tab.

    When you have a work center that's marked as "Outside Service" there actually isn't any functionality attached to that checkbox. It would be great if that workcenter was tied to PO creation and PO receipt. For example, tie outside service work center to a vendor. Show WIP at outside service operations in a separate warehouse. Additionally, allow the PO reciept to move the production order through the outside service operation.

    With 2019R2 we gave you the ability to tie a Purchase Order to the Production Order.

    In future versions we will look at how to automatically apply the cost of the Purchase Order to the Production Order. I'm going to leave this in Planned Status until the last piece is complete.

    As a further improvement to this, when items on PO for outside services are received, the receipt should execute the move transaction of the outside service operation step too.
