Topic: Work Order Flow
Why do work orders complete immediately?
When I think of a Work Order I envision it be be like issuing a PO to the production floor which will cause them to
build the widget and when done deliver them into inventory, which would close the work order.
So far the flow is fine, with one exception... there is no time delay between issuing the work order and it being completing...
If there was an "In Process" state then we could have a Work In Progress report that we could give to manufacturing to tell them what work needs to be done.
or am I missing something?
We could then allow work orders to be entered that create a demand greater than our stock level.
Of course, the work order could not be closed until there was sufficient stock.
Sales Orders create demand on goods that can be purchased or manufactured
Work Orders create demand on goods that are purchased
