A trigger point is an object that can be assigned to an operation in order to trigger a function.

Trigger points can trigger functions,


You can also trigger a function by linking a user status to a ‘reason for variance’ ( example).


At present, the following functions can be triggered:

You can release all operations which come directly after the operation

You can release all operations up to and including the next operation with a release stop indicator.

You can release all operations which come before the operation in the order

You can create a new order. The order is created without reference to material using a reference operation set.

You can include a reference operation set in the existing order. In this case you need to specify the operation after which the operation set is to be inserted. A production order is always rescheduled after a reference operation set has been included via a trigger point.

You can trigger a task defined as a workflow ( Structure link Trigger Points).

To minimize the effort involved in creating trigger points, you can create standard trigger points and trigger point groups.
