    Hi Max,

    Multi-level bills of material, where one production order produces a manufactured component that appears in the production order components of the production order for the next BOM level, are standard functionality.  These sort of relationships are very specific to current and future availability though, so if there isn’t sufficient inventory and production orders to produce the quantity needed by another production order you will see that other production order not schedule.

    In answer to your specific questions:

    Yes, Mx can schedule multiple production orders and multiple routings, although only one routing at a time can be active for a single production order.

    Yes, this is possible, however it would require an extension as the base application does not consider reservations.

    No, the Graphical Scheduler only shows relationships between operations within the same production order.
