Selection Criteria and Overall Profile

A progress report can be displayed for more than one sales order or a WBS element. The requirement elements and procurement elements are displayed.

The following selection criteria are available:

  • Plant

  • Sales order from-to

  • Sales order item from-to

  • Project

  • WBS element

  • Material

  • Production/process order, network

  • Planned order

If you want to display all objects for a sales order , enter the sales order with item number. By entering a material or production order, you can further limit the number of objects displayed.

If you want to display objects from the Project System , you have to choose a network or a material. The selected object (network or material) must be assigned to a WBS element. Depending on what you have entered, a structure is displayed, from which you can select a network or material.

You can enter the overall profile on the selection screen (see Settings for the Order Progress Report ).
