Item Details tab
Item Status: You can customize this drop down field in Setup > Company > Lists > Item Status. Examples of statuses would be "staged" or "waiting for PO". On the Material tab on the order, you will see a Item Status column (image below)
Item Estimated Labor Hours: When you setup your inventory item, you can enter the estimated labor hour associated with the part.
Total Estimated Labor Hours: This will take the estimated labor hours multiplied by the quantity of the part on the order.
Create Labor Records: Check this and when the material is added to the order, a labor item for the total labor hours will open.
- If this is checked but the labor record doesn't create, then you have a setting in SME Setup to ignore labor hours. (setup > company > order > ignore labor hours on material)
Need to order (Force JIT): if this is checked, SME will not try to allocate stock for the item. The Link Status will be Has JIT Items and you'll need to place a PO for the item.
Vendor: This field will be populated automatically with the default vendor on your inventory item. This is set on the Inventory Item > Ordering Information tab > Vendor field.

The grid will show you what warehouse you are allocating or reserving stock from for the order. You can also use the Material Allocation window to do the same thing.
