 Order Processing: Internal Processing


You can use the order to detail the work to be performed. This is important to minimize unproductive time, above all for central objects, whose malfunction can lead to bottlenecks or breakdowns in production.

Depending on the type of order and work planned, you can execute planning at different levels of detail:

  • Small orders (quick entry)

You can enter the required data on the order header screen and do not have to call up a separate operation screen.

  • Extensive orders (without detailed planning)

You can enter any number of operations in list form on the operation overview screen.

  • Orders with detailed planning

You can call up detail data screens for each operation, to enter the following data:

  • Internal processing data (for example, wage data)

  • External processing data (for example, price, purchasing group)

  • Operation data

To plan activities, you use operations and sub-operations, in which the individual work steps are described. For more information, see Use of Operations and Sub-Operations .
