    Hi

     

    Production Order

    Standard production order   based on the Bill of Materials and, is used to produce a regular production item. It manages material transactions of the regular production process. In addition, the user can change components at the production stage. When a new standard production order is opened, all the components are filled automatically.

     

    Special production order is used to produce and repair items or to perform activities that are not necessarily Bill of Material items. For example, repair order for customer equipment cards, or repair order for rejected assemblies. Special production order components manually.

     

    Disassembly production order is used to disassemble a parent item of a regular product to its components. The product is disassembled into separate parts, which can then be put into stock and sold. For example, the user can purchase a used car, take it apart, and sell the individual components.

     

    Starting from SAP Business One 2005 A SP01, the user can change the planned quantity of components in production order of all types after the production order was added. In addition it is now possible to print only the production orders that have not yet been printed.

      A Production Order is defined as follows in a discrete manufacturing industry:

      SAP Business One supports three types of production orders.

       

      Standard u2013The Standard production order is based on the bill of materials and you use it to produce a regular production item. You manage material transactions of the regular production process. In addition, you can change components at the production stage. When you open a new standard production order, all the components are filled in automatically.

       

      Special u2013 Use the Special production order to produce and repair items or to perform activities that are not necessarily bill of materials items. For example, repair order for customer equipment cards, or repair order for rejected assemblies. You create special production order components manually.

       

      Disassembly u2013 Use the Disassembly production order to explode a parent item of the regular product to its child items. You disassemble the product into separate parts, which can then be put into stock and sold. For example, you can purchase a used car, take it apart, and sell the individual components

       

      Once you release a purchase order and good recipt is done it is converted to production order to initiate manufacturing of the product.finally the goods are picked and confirmation of production order is done.

       

       

      As for a Process order it is used in case for process industry where the BOM may change with each lot or batch .for eg. like in a pharma company every tablet has a batch number whihc has some different composition . For such Process industry we use Process order we need to define master reciepe ,bill of material, resource and production version as master data for process industry .
