Process orders are the main element used for the detailed planning and execution of process manufacturing.

A process order describes the production of batches (materials) in a production run or the rendering of services. It is generated from the master recipe and contains all the information specified during process planning.

You use a process order to plan the quantities, dates, and resources of the manufacturing process, to control process order execution, and to define rules for the account assignment and settlement of the costs incurred.

In PP-PI, process orders perform the same function as production orders in PP.
