(Note: to be able to use Production Orders you need to have activated the Production Order module by going to Settings > Account Setup 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 Production in the Inventory Location where the Production Order started.
Deletion of Production receipts and re-introduction of the associated Raw Materials in the virtual Work-In-Process Inventory Location.
