Simulated Production Order Window

Simulates examples of production orders.

Simulated production orders have no influence on any requirements or efficiencies. They have no influence on the planning of orders.

The simulated production order is unique based on the following characteristics:

  • As its name implies, it is a simulation and its main purpose is for quoting and costing - such as when the Research and Development department wants to get a cost estimate on a proposed item. A simulated production order serves as an example of a production order.

  • It does not influence the planning of orders. Planning (MPS and MRP) neither considers nor is affected by simulated production orders. Also, a simulated production order cannot be used as a template because it disappears when you change its status.
