WO-K-C Create Multi-Date Work Orders
Purpose of Program
Use this program to create individual work orders from a single work order within which multiple start/finish dates and quantities were entered. A separate work order will be created for each delivery date and quantity. Each work order will share the same work order prefix number as the original work order number, but each will have a different suffix number beginning with -002, -003, -004 etc.
This program allows a series of work orders to be created by entering only one work order, rather than having to create each work order one-by-one.
General Program Operation
Create the parent work order first through WO-A Enter Work Orders. Establish the appropriate start/finish dates and quantities.
Go to WO-K-C and enter the work order number, or select the work order from a pop-up window by pressing the F2 key (or clicking on the Lookup button). You will be asked if you wish to save the entry.
If you indicate yes, the system begins creating the work orders. You will see messages indicating that work order routing files and work order material files are being created.
When processing is completed, you may exit the screen and go to WO-A Enter Work Orders. You can look up the original work order in a pop-up window by pressing the F2 key (or clicking on the Lookup button). You will now see separate orders with the same prefix number for each start/finish date entered on the original order.
