Work Order Inquiry

Work Order Inquiry

 

Application Overview

 

Work Order Inquiry is an interface that provides work order header information as well as current production progress.  Current production progress, like Complete Quantity, Scrapped Quantity and Last Production Date, will be updated whenever a transaction for this work order is created.  Also, this interface displays routing, bill of materials and production transactions for the work order in different views and drill downs are available for more detail.

 

A work order number must be specified unless you have drilled down to Work Order Inquiry from another interface, ex. Sales Order Inquiry.  All the information about the work order will be displayed.

 

Basic information from the work order header will be displayed on the top four lines, including item number, production location, order status and revision number.  If this work order was copied from a COP order, sales order information will be displayed on the top-right side.  The middle of the screen displays numeric statistics about the order, including quantity ordered, quantity completed, balance quantity, planning start and due dates, and actual start date.  “Balance Qty” is for orders where the ordered quantity is not an exact quantity.  “Exact Bal Qty” is for orders where the order quantity is an exact quantity.  Balance Quantity of an order is the difference between quantity ordered and quantity reported.  If order quantity is an exact quantity, balance quantity is ordered quantity minus completed quantity.  Otherwise, balance quantity is ordered quantity minus completed quantity and scrapped quantity.  “Outstanding Qty” is the number of pieces that have been started but not yet finished.
