Work Orders

The Work Order functionality is used to raise Work Orders for Assemblies. These are products which are made up of a number of items and then assembled on site.
Work order display shows all the work orders that have been created in the system with the status of each work order.

Note: A Work Order may be associated with a Customer Order or it may not. It’s possible/probable that you might wish to create assemblies to hold in stock so that they are ready to be despatched quickly.

Once you’ve added your Work Order you need to define which Assemblies you want to make. On the right-hand side is the Work Order Detail section. Select + New:

Add the name of the Assembly you wish to make and the number. The Assembly field will show a dropdown of all Assemblies that have been entered in the Assembly section of the Product Catalogue. Then add the number of assemblies you wish to make.

As the work on the Assembly progresses you can change the status of the Work Order to “In Production” and then “Complete”, at which point the Assembly will show as “In Stock” and the constituent parts will be taken out of stock.
