 Assigning an Order to a Project


  1. Call up the order in change mode.

  2. Choose the Additional Data tab page.

  3. Enter the WBS element or the network operation to which you want to assign the order, and choose Continue.

    A dialog box is displayed.

  4. How you proceed now depends on your requirements:

    • If you have only entered one WBS element, you can decide whether or not you want to copy the WBS element dates for the order.

    • If you copy the project dates, the system changes the basic order dates in the Dates section into the project basic dates.

    • If you do not copy the project dates, the original order dates remain decisive for scheduling.

      Note Note

      In the Project System, you can update changed dates in the order using Copy project dates. This function is also available in the selection function for orders (list editing), so that you can update dates from several orders in one step.
