The Print Production Work Orders application prints the physical work orders that instruct the production department what to produce. These orders may have been entered in the Production Order Entry application or copied from Customer Order Processing through the Copy COP Orders Into BOMP application.
A work order need not be printed before BOMP will allow production for the order to be reported in the Production Transaction Processing application. However, once a work order has been printed or had production reported, it may no longer be changed or deleted in the Production Order Entry application or in COP. For more information on modifying and deleting orders copied from COP, see the Package Overview section of this manual.
If one of the Work In Process (WIP) options is selected, General Ledger distributions will be generated in the I/M Distribution To G/L File. Credits will be created for the asset account associated with the feature option and/or component items as well as an offsetting debit to the work-in-process account number specified in the BOMP Setup application. If the user sets the Increase WIP? to Y, components' quantity on hand and allocated in the Inventory Item File can be reduced immediately.
The user may choose to print work orders for one or all locations, and also may define a range of order numbers to print. The user must specify a cutoff for order start dates. Orders with start dates after that date will not be printed. The user must decide whether to allow work orders to be printed more than once and also how many product structure levels to explode.
Select Print Production Work Orders from the pull down BOMP Processing window. The following screen will then be displayed:
