Batch Release / Close of Production Orders


Production orders can be created manually or in bulk using MRP.  In either case the production orders (PDOs) need to have their status changed to 'Released' before they can be sent to the production floor for recording of production.  This product provides a button on the Production Order screen to release planned PDOs in a batch.  The user clicks on the button and is presented with a list of all PDOs with a status of 'Planned'.  They can then select individual PDOs to release or they can use the 'Shift check box' option to select all PDOs to be released.  They click another button and the PDOs are released.


The second part of this functionality is to 'Close' the PDOs in batch mode.  There is a second button on the PDO screen to 'Close' PDOs in a batch. The user clicks on the button and is presented with a list of all PDOs with a status of 'Released' that also have the quantity completed greater than or equal to the planned production quantity.  They can then select individual PDOs to close or they can use the 'Shift check box' option to select all PDOs to be closed.  They click another button and the PDOs are closed.
