Typically, when adding a Work Order for a finished good which also includes finished goods in its Bill of Materials, you will see a checkbox appear allowing you to create the intermediate Work Orders as well, as below:

In some cases however this doesn't happen and this can be the case because of any number of reasons. Examples include:

  1. The sub-assemblies are not low in stock.
  2. The finished good in question does not actually include any sub-assemblies.
  3. Some sub-assemblies in the final finished good BoM do not have a valid BoM associated with them (their BoM is empty).
