BOM Drop is for Orders, Projects and Invoices which is more for the sales team. For factory floor preparing BOM products ahead of time and require configuration of options in BOM can be solved if the BOM Drop also creates a new Production Plan window with the selected BOM lines already created in the ProductionLine tab.
Tested working on PatioSet dropped on newly created Production plan for PatioSet.
1. Create a new Production (Single Product) with PatioSet as its item. Do not press 'Create/Update Production Lines'.
2. BOM Drop, select PatioSet and your new Production record (Name of the record will be displayed so do make sure you entered the name in (1)). You can manipulate or configure the BOM Drop selection according to the customized production.
3. Click OK on the BOM Drop window and refresh your Production window detail tab to view the BOM Lines. You can then 'Complete' the Production which will consume the lines and create the BOM Parent product. Accounting consequence will be exact to the line products.

The idea sounds very good
The patch still applies smoothly to actual core
Integrated the patch and tested, found two issues that must be reviewed:
The list of Production Orders was shown with empty label, I mean, I created one production order and it appears on the list but the "document number" is invisible, it can be selected but is not visible
Tested and it inserted lines in a production order - but I didn't test the effect because the production has a button to create the production lines - how does interact with that button? it must be executed before or after or instead the button? Does it work in that case?
Keeping it open because the solution seems too close and is worthy.
