Refresh Production Order Batch Job

With this batch job, you can calculate and update production orders, and if your warehouse location is set up to require pick and/or put-away processing, you can create warehouse requests to put-away output.

The production order BOM is generated from the item production BOM calculation. The program copies the production routing into the production order header from the item routing.


It is not allowed to refresh a reserved production order. You can restore the reservation after the production order is refreshed, but in that case you should cancel the reservation before you refresh.


You can define what is included in the batch job by setting filters. You can set additional fields on the Production Order tab by clicking the Field field, then clicking the AssistButton that appears to the right. You can also determine what is shown in the batch job by filling in the fields on the Options tab. Fill in the fields as follows:

Production Order

Status: The status of the production order is entered as default.

No.: Here you can define which production orders (production order numbers) are to be calculated.



Using these filters, you have the ability to refresh multiple orders at once.  For instance, if you wanted to calculate and update all released production orders, you would enter Released in the Status filter and leave the No. filter empty.



Scheduling Direction: Here you can define whether you want the scheduling to be refreshed forward or backward.

Forward scheduling begins at the starting date and proceeds forward to the finishing date. Backward scheduling begins from the ending date and proceeds backward to the required starting date.

Calculate Lines: Place a check mark here if you want the program to calculate the production order lines.

Calculate Routings: Place a check mark here if you want the program to calculate the routing.

Calculate Component Need: Place a check mark here if you want the program to calculate the component requirement.

Warehouse Create Inbound Request: If the warehouse location is set up to require put-away processing but does not use directed put-away and pick, place a check mark here  to create a warehouse request for the putting away of the production order's components.
