So far I only found that during order creation I can chose:
extras->task list selection->to reference object.
and the task list is copied into the order.
Do you know how and where I can set parameters to have the task list copied automatically (in PP I have transaction OPL8).
I'm pretty sure that you can't do this for work orders.
I have limited knowledge of PP but from what I can gather there is a one to one relationship between a material/plant and a routing. The routing can appear on many materials but any given material will only have one routing. This would mean that when a production order is created for the material there can be only one routing defaulted in (hence the option to do so).
With Equipment/Flocs there can be/are multiple tasks lists that apply to that item so defaulting a task list into the order would not be possible.
If this particular task is something that gets done often you could create a maintenance item with that tasklist on it, attach it to a plan and then manually call the plan (IP10) whenever you need an order produced. It's a bit ugly but it will do what you want.
