The Production Order Processing module controls the movement of materials during the production process. Production is managed through the use of production orders. These orders indicate the quantities and due dates of items being manufactured. They also contain lists of materials required, extracted from the standard bill of material, and expected operations, from the standard routing. Production receipts and component movement are reported here.

Production orders are the foundation supporting the ability to manage manufacturing operations. Orders are ‘Released’ in response to demand for an item being sold, or being used in a higher level item. Once released, the orders are used to manage material, labor, overhead, and outside processes, with the expectation that an expected quantity will be completed within a specific timeframe. Reports and inquiries are available to analyze current production status, and act on exceptions requiring attention.
