CP0000 Customer Order Processing Overview


How To Use This Manual


When most people receive a new product, they want to use it right away.  Unfortunately, this is not quite possible when dealing with computer hardware and software.  This manual is intended to serve as a reference guide in describing the functionality and the application of the Customer Order Processing package. 


The first few sections of this manual are intended to introduce the user to the Customer Order Processing Package (COP) and help get started.  The latter sections are for reference when the user has specific questions about each of the Customer Order Processing applications.  These applications are described later in this section under COP Menu Bar Selections and Definitions.


It is suggested that the user first read the System Manager manual.  The Package Overview section of this manual gives an overview of the Customer Order Processing package.  The General Operator Instructions in the System Manager manual explains how to enter and edit data and the use of special keys on the keyboard.  The Startup section gives step‑by‑step instructions on how to load the programs, create the data files, and enter the initial data.  The Processing Procedures section gives direction in daily, period and year ending procedures.


The user should then scan each of the COP sections to under­stand how each of the COP applications work.  A very basic description of each of these applications is also contained under the heading COP Menu Bar Selections and Definitions which is part of this Package Overview.


Data Load Sheets are included in the manual under many of the applications.  These sheets may be used to manually fill out the data that must be entered at the computer.  They may be helpful in easing data entry.


Sample screens and reports are also included under each of the appropriate COP applications.  These are a guide to show the user the type of screens and reports that may be obtained from the system.


There are certain terms and concepts with which you should become familiar before reading this manual.  This overview deals with that and also introduces you to important functions of the Customer Order Processing package.

A General Explanation Of Customer Order Processing


Major Functions


Three major functions of Customer Order Processing can be identified.


First, the customer sends in a purchase order and you respond by transferring the information on the purchase order into an order.  This order stores a great deal of general information about the customer, the shipping destination, the terms of sale, the responsible salesperson, etc.  The order also contains specific information about what was ordered, how much, at what price, and when the merchandise should be shipped.  Orders are entered through the Order Entry module.  This module has other capabilities, but what you are basically concerned with is logging the customer's purchase request so that merchandise can be shipped to fill the order.


The second major function is the printing of a picking ticket so that the shipping department will know what to send to the customer.  All or part of the order may be shipped at one time, depending upon the customer's desires and stock availability.  The shipping clerk will mark on the picking ticket the actual quantities shipped, then forward the document to the Billing Department.


The third major function is the printing of invoices that bill the customer for the merchandise that was shipped.  The billing clerk must identify those items on the order that were shipped and those that were back ordered and will be shipped later, those that are out of stock and will not be shipped, and those that were not shipped because the customer did not wish to received them yet.  The invoice shows quantities shipped, quantities back ordered, and quantities out of stock.  Once the invoice has been printed, Accounts Receivable files may be updated to show the customer's debt, the salesperson's commission amount due, etc., and Inventory Management files may be updated to show the reduced stock on hand.


To reiterate, the major functions are the entry of the order, the printing of the picking ticket and the printing of the invoice.  There are also a great many supporting functions that make the major functions easier.  These functions are discussed briefly below.


Supporting Functions


Orders, once entered, must provide you the ability to modify or delete them.  The Order Entry module allows for both of these functions.  After orders have been copied into another package for production, your ability to change or delete them will depend on where in the production process they stand.  Refer to the Order Entry section of this manual and to the Overview section of the BOMP manual for details.


A separate processing application allows orders to be consolidated (merged) to facilitate shipping and billing.  A list of orders on file may be printed for editing reference.  Customer‑oriented order acknowledgments may be printed so that the customer can review your interpretation of his purchase order before merchandise is shipped.  Another application exists to allow you to automatically convert back ordered items on orders to shippable items, providing there is an adequate quantity of the item available.  This function makes it unnecessary for you to manually change the status of each and every back ordered line item once stocks have been replenished.


Order Status reports enable you to list open (unshipped) orders by item or by customer to assist with stock allocation decisions.  These reports may also show back ordered items exclusively, which can be a great help when using the automatic back order filling module discussed above.


Other Functions


There are many other functions in Customer Order Processing.  Chief among these are those that assist with customer relations and those that provide important management reports.


In the first category, the Order Inquiry module enables you to quickly review orders on file for a customer.  If the customer calls in with a question, you may review the relevant orders, without leaving the phone as long as there is a terminal nearby.  Also, the Inquiry section includes a comprehensive list of customer service tools that can answer and resolve most customer service related questions.


The Sales Desk module allows you to enter orders, quotes, and item inquiries as well as save them for later review.  In addition, Sales Desk enables you to answer pricing information, quantities available by location, future quantity, price breaks, component availability, credit and customer information, update customer data and calculate freight without having to leave the Sales Desk menu.


The Price List incorporates the pricing strategies that are unique to Customer Order Processing to show all of the relevant prices for an item.  Prices for the same item may be different, depending upon who orders it and how much is ordered.  This report is very useful for quoting prices to customers as well as for keeping track of what prices are being charged.


In the second category, the Sales History module is sufficiently comprehensive to be considered a package by itself.  Sales history information is available in a variety of formats and configurations to assist management in evaluating what happened during the sales period or the year, compared to what happened last year. 


The information can be analyzed for products, product categories, customers, and salespersons so that you can determine your areas of strength and weakness as well as those areas that are generally improving and those that are weakening.


Customer Order Processing provides many powerful tools for improving customer relations and strengthening your financial statements, as well as enabling you to accomplish the standard actions necessary for processing customer orders and RMA’s.

General Overview of Customer Order Processing


The Customer Order Processing package for the small to medium manufacturer/distributor is used in performing the basic and standard functions necessary for a company to record, track, verify and generally handle its customer orders.


First, here is a brief statement on the scope and basic functions of the COP package.


The typical manufacturer/distributor selling products will have an established and expanding customer base.  These customers request certain of the company's products and these requests are entered in the form of customer orders.  These orders will cause products to be sent to customers along with (or followed by) an invoice (bill).


So, the basic functions of any Customer Order Processing package would be to:


1. Record the customer orders

2. Modify customer orders

3. Allow for credit management

4. Provide customer service tools

5. Centralized Cash Processing

3. Print Picking Tickets

4. Print Invoices


Customer Order Processing is designed to process customer orders from the time they are entered until they are billed.  Processing a customer order in a retail store is not terribly complex and does not normally require a computer; if there is one there, it is probably for inventory/sales analysis.  As products become harder to find, it usually means the product is more complex to make, contains materials not readily available or is restricted by the product's owner.  Whatever the reason, the usual means of getting this harder to find product to the market is via a distributor.  A distributor normally buys all his goods from vendors, stocks those goods in one or more warehouses and sells/delivers those goods off the shelf.  A distributor exists basically because he is a convenience, a source for many differing items in a particular segment of the distribution industry, e.g., sporting goods.  Some distributors add value beyond convenience to their goods for sale by packaging or maybe doing some light final assembly work.  Customer Order Processing (COP) and Inventory Management (I/M) handle the computer side of the above distribution functions except for those distributors who do assembly work to create their final products.  For that you will also need Bill of Material Processor (BOMP).


BOMP allows you to set up bill of material structures as well as feature/option configurations (modular bills and regular manufactured items).  COP orders for feature items may be copied into BOMP for production.  For information on production of COP orders, see the Package Overview section of the BOMP manual.


Allocation of Stocked Items


When an order contains a stocked item (either as a line item or a component of a line item), the Elliott system automatically allocates (or reserves) the correct quantity of the item in inventory to make sure it will be there when the order is filled.  How and when this allocation occurs depends on the type of item, which packages you are using, and how your system is configured.  For specific information on different allocation scenarios, see the Package Overview section of the I/M manual.


Serialized Items


Serial numbers for items are supported by the Inventory Management, Customer Order Processing, Purchase Order and Receiving, Bill of Materials, and Shop Floor Control packages.  The user has the flexibility of stocking serial numbers for items or only assigning serial numbers to the item when it is sold or issued.  The exception to this is the Shop Floor Control package.  A serial number must exist before a quantity can be issued.  If a non-stock inventory item is sold to a customer and the item has serial components, the user can enter serial numbers after invoices are posted to Accounts Receivable using the Issue Serial/Lot Component Items application under the COP Processing menu.


A further explanation on implementation of serialized inventory is contained under Order Entry and Billing, and Invoice Printing in COP and Inventory Transaction Processing and Serial/Lot Processing in I/M.


Lot Number Items


Lots are supported by the Inventory Management, Customer Order Processing, Purchase Order and Receiving, Bill of Materials, and Shop Floor Control packages.  Unlimited lots may be maintained for each item. Each lot contains quantity on hand, quantity allocated and expiration date by month and year.  If a non-stock inventory item is sold to a customer and the item has lot components, the user can enter lot numbers after invoices are posted to Accounts Receivable using the Issue Serial/Lot Component Items application under the COP Processing menu.



A further explanation on implementation of Lot Tracking is contained under Order Entry and Billing and Invoice Printing in COP and Inventory Transaction Processing and Serial/Lot Processing in I/M.

Refer to Deposit Handling section.



Normal Mode Of Operation Of Customer Order Processing




You will want to transfer data from your open orders to the COP Order files.  You may accomplish this through the Order Entry application.  Refer to the Startup procedure in this manual for more information on the subject.


There is other preliminary work required also, such as integrating your pricing policies with the pricing capabilities available in COP.  You will need to set up shipping addresses for each of your customer's shipping destinations.  You will also need to make decisions about the options offered in the COP Setup file and enter the sales account numbers that are to be associated with specific product categories.


Both the Accounts Receivable and Inventory Management packages are necessary prerequisites.  They must be installed and fully functional before COP can be installed.




Once the COP package has been installed, you will probably enter orders on a more or less daily basis.  Picking tickets will be printed for those orders due for shipment.  Invoices will be printed for those orders that have been shipped.  Invoice data may be posted once a day (depending upon volume of invoices) to update A/R, I/M files and Issue Serial/Lot Component Items if this is applicable to your business.




Before closing the period, run any necessary reports from the Sales History Reports and Sales Analysis Reports applications.  One application that is routinely run on a monthly basis is thePeriod End Procedure in Sales History Processing.  The Sales History Reports may only be printed for the current period, which is designated in the Period End Procedure.  Refer to the Sales History Processing section and the Period End Processing Checklist section for more information on this application.  Another application is the Clear I/M and A/R Accumulators.  This process sets the period to date fields to zero.  Refer to the Clear I/M and A/R Accumulators section for more information.




The Year End Procedure in Sales History Processing is run annually.  Refer to the Sales History Processing section for specifics.




Most of the applications of Customer Order Processing can be done whenever the need arises.  You may:


    a)    do price code file maintenance

    b)    do mass price changes

    c)    print a price list

    d)    maintain product category by location, by account

    e)    print sales history reports

    f) post/purge sales history transactions

    g)    purge sales history file

    h)  maintain ship‑to addresses

    i) fill backorders

    j) print order status reports

    k)    inquire into orders

    l) activate blanket orders

m) consolidate orders

n)  copy orders

o)   maintain and update future pricing

p)   release held orders

q)   shipment verification
