(Note: to be able to use Production Orders you need to have activated the Production Order module by going to Your Profile > Billing and Admin > Setup Account and ticking the Enable Production Orders check box.)
The Production Order is a special document that handles the operations involved in the Production module of Megaventory. More specifically, the Production Order handles:
- Allocation of Raw Materials (components/ingredients) from the Inventory Location where the Production Order started, to a virtual Work-in-Process Inventory Location
- Returns of Raw Materials from the virtual Work-in-Process Inventory Location to the Inventory Location where the Production Order started (for example, in case of defective Raw Materials).
- Receipt of Finished Goods in the Inventory Location where the Production Order started.
- Deletion of Finished Goods receipts and re-introduction of the associated Raw Materials in the virtual Work-In-Process Inventory Location.
