I was wondering if anyone can help me figure out how i can purchase materials for a production process, but ensure that the cost used for the materials is based on the AVCO method (average cost)?

Also how do i go about setting up new production lines ready for use, and how do i go about running those production lines?

1) Go to the Orders, Purchasing, Utilities menu, tab 8 Calculate Costs. Use "Average PO price for a specified period" for the formula. This will set the cost to the average buying value. This will not be your current average cost but only a buying average.
Or you can run Reports/Inventory/Item Master Summary/Inventory Actual Value report, output to Excel, and reimport into Item Master only two columns Item ID and Unit Cost.
What do you call "production lines"? I am not sure. Maybe someone else knows here....

What i would like to do is keep my stock records based on the avco method, and when the bill of materials is calculated for the production order i would like it to use the current avco price for what is in stock. i also would like to know how to correctly create production orders so that i can have it automatically calculate the price without haveing to input it manually.

We do not have the auo average cost recalculations there. Maybe we have an add-in, but it would not install when software is running under the promotional license.
There is a way to load average or rolling cost into the Item Master. 
Run a report Inventory, Inventory Actual Value. Save to Excel. Leave only two columns: Item ID and Unit Avg Cost. Save as CSV. Go to the Data/Import Menu, Select Item Master, load saved CSV and import.
To create a production order, create a BOM and then select it as an assembly on the Work Order screen, Parts tab, Assembly dropdown.
