The All page has a MO information card that gives staff alternatives for processing the MO in addition to displaying all pertinent information about the related MO.


The product and quantity of units being manufactured, the MO number, and the MO's status are all displayed in the header of a MO card. The status is shown as “Confirmed” if the MO has not yet seen any work completed. The status changes to “In Progress” after work has started. The status changes to “To Close” when all work orders for a MO are finished and the MO is prepared for closure.


A line for each completed work order, if any, is displayed in the main body of a MO card, which is followed by the work order that is now pending completion. Work orders that are marked as completed will have a green tick mark to the right of the order title. A button that accesses the page for the work center the order is allocated to indicates which work order is active at any given time.

The MO card has a “Close Production” button at the bottom. This is how the MO is closed after production is finished. On the other hand, a “Quality Checks” button shows up if any quality checks are needed for the MO as a whole, not just the work orders within it. Any necessary quality checks can be finished from the pop-up window that appears when you click Quality Checks.


The MO card starts to disappear after selecting Close Production, and an Undo option shows up in the footer. When you click Undo, the MO stays open. When the MO card fully vanishes, the work order is closed.


A button on the right side of the footer provides a pop-up box with more MO choices:


Scrap: When components are found to be defective, scrap is utilized to transport them to a scrap destination.


Add work order: To include a new work order in the MO, utilize the Add Work Order function.

Work Orders by Work Centers:

Every work center's page by default displays an information card for each work order that has been assigned to it and is prepared for execution. Once all previous work orders have been finished and the MO of which it is a part is ready to start, a work order is deemed ready to begin.


In order to examine all confirmed work orders allocated to a work centre, regardless of their level of readiness, choose the “Ready to Start” filter and click the “x” button to remove it from the search field.


On the page of a work centre, a work order information card displays all pertinent information about the related work order and gives staff members choices on how to proceed with processing it.


A work order card's header displays the product and quantity of units being produced, the status of the work order, and the reference number of the MO that the work order is a part of. The work order's status is “To Do” if no work has started on it yet. The status refreshes to show a timer that indicates how long the work order has been worked on in total after work starts.


A button on the right side of the footer provides a pop-up window with more work order options:


Scrap: When components are discovered to be defective, scrap is utilized to transport them to a scrap destination.


Add component: The Add Component function allows you to include an extra component in the MO.


Move to work center: To move a work order to a new work center, utilize the move to work center function.


Suggest a worksheet improvement: The user can suggest an improvement to the work order by using the “Suggest a Worksheet” option.
