The order information system is a tool for shop floor control and process industries with reporting functions for production orders, planned orders and process orders.

Evaluations take place - as with the IOC logical database, via the original order tables.

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text.

The descriptions of the functions in the order information system are valid for production and process orders. Where possible, any differences have been indicated in the following sections.

The following documentation on the order information system relates to the transactions COOIS ( Production Order Information System ) and COOISPI ( Process Order Information System ); which replace the previous transactions CO26 ( Object Overview ), CO28 ( Individual Object Lists ), COIO ( Object Overview - PI ) and COID ( Individual Object Lists - PI ).


You can view all the orders in the system, including the orders with deletion flags or deletion indicators. Archived orders are not taken into account.

The order information system has the following display options:

In an individual object list , a list is generated for the selected object (for instance, order header, operation, component). You can define the structure and appearance of the individual object list with a layout .

On the object overview the individual orders are displayed with their subordinate objects in a hierarchical structure. With an overall profile , you can define which fields are displayed and which objects (order headers, items, sequences, and so on) are read or displayed. In addition, you can define which fields are displayed for the individual objects.

Authorization Check

The system carries out an authorization check in mass processing, the order information system, background printing of production orders, release of production orders, collective availability check and so on, in other words, in all functions that are based on the report PPIO_ENTRY.

When a user chooses a variant, the system checks whether the user has authorization for the function/transaction stored in the variant.

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text.

Technically speaking, the system checks the authorization for the transaction that is entered in the variant of the report PPIO_ENTRY. For SAP standard variants, this transaction is displayed in the variant name (for example, for the variant SAP&COOIS, authorization for the order information system (transaction COOIS) is checked:

If the user selects the variant of another function and does not have authorization for this function, the system issues an error message.

If the user has authorization, the system still displays an information message. You can define the type of the message COIS016 in Customizing for Shop Floor Control under Define Attributes of System Messages.

If you have not entered a transaction in the variant, the system checks the user's authorization for transaction COHV.

For more information, see Definition of Variants .

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text.

You can use the report PPIO_ENTRY_VARIANT_DISPLAY to see which transactions are entered in the variants.

The system also issues information about which output list, overall profile, and layout have been predefined.

Business Add-In (BAdI)

You can the BAdI PP and PI Order Information System (WORKORDER_INFOSYSTEM) to fill customer-specific fields and to change the display and layout in the object overview or the individual lists.

For example implementations, see the SAP Notes 806375 and 806247.

You can find the BAdI in Customizing for Shop Floor Control under System ModificationsBusiness Add-Ins .
