If I enter a work order to make 100 ABC and this product contains a subassembly called DEF, will the system automatically create a work order to create 100 DEF? assuming 1 DEF subassembly per ABC FG.

No. It won't automatically create work orders to build your DEF.

If you create a work order to build 100 of your ABC and you 'Allocate' that work order then the shortage reports will show a shortage of your DEF reminding you to build some (or buy some).

Many people use sub contractors to build sub assemblies. Other's might build 500 in one go and put them on the shelf.

The idea of automatically generating WO's for sub assemblies wouldn't work for us.

If I make 10 product I'll create a work order to 'assemble' 10. But I don't want a work order to build 10 sub assemblies. I can't setup a machine to just make 10 subassys. I'll make a minimum of 50 but usually 100 and put them on the shelf. Later work orders to build finish product will just pull the finished sub assemblies off the shelf as required.
