Updating status on production orders
The following options are available: Note You can right-click a planned order that has a particular status and filter for other planned orders that have the same status.
This is useful, for example, if you want to filter for all planned orders that have a status of Approved, and then firm them.
When a planned order is exploded, details about the outcome are displayed on the Explanation tab in the Explosion form. For more information, see About using tracing for master plans.
You review and analyze sales order information to track the status of sales orders and invoices and accurately plan for future needs.
Transaction processing ensures that you do not commit items to a sales order before having a valid, processed order.
If an item or order is held up for any reason, the system does not commit the order.
You can also access and review sales history information.
You can review billing information that does not print on the invoice that the customer receives, such as the status of any related orders.
For example, you can locate information about how many items are on demand, available in supply, and available to be promised.
After warehouse personnel pick the appropriate items to fill an order, you can verify that the billing and shipping information on the sales order is correct.
You can enter any changes, such as additional charges for freight or taxes, on the sales order before the merchandise leaves the warehouse.
This is helpful if you have customers who come to the warehouse and purchase items directly.
After you enter their order, you can bypass the picking and shipment confirmation steps by advancing the status code on the order line to the status code for processing invoices.
