    Hi,

    Manufacturing order used in process industries.

    Process orders are used for the production of materials or for rendering of services in a specific quantity on a specific date. They enable the planning of resources, control of process order management, and specify the rules for account assignment and order settlement.

    A process order consists of operations, each of which is carried out at a primary resource. An operation is subdivided into phases.

    A phase is an independent process step that contains the detailed description of a part of the entire manufacturing process. Phases are carried out at the primary resource of their superior operation.

    The way phases are related to each other specifies the sequence of the manufacturing process. Phase relationships can be sequential, parallel, or overlapping.

    Several materials required for the execution of a specific process step can be planned for an operation or phase.

    A phase contains standard values for activities. These values serve to calculate dates, capacity requirements, and costs.

    Several secondary resources can be planned for operations and phases in addition to the primary resource.

    A phase contains a number of process instructions that convey information relevant to process control.

    Production Order:

    Use the Production Order process to create and maintain production orders. The production order enables you to make finished products.

    You are enabled to issue the production order, to use different issue methods, and to create different types of production orders

    SAP Business One supports three types of production orders.

    The Standard production order is based on the Bill of Materials and you use it to produce a regular production item. You mangage material transactions of the regular production process. In addition, you can change components at the production stage. When you open a new standard production order, all the components are filled in automatically.

    Use the Special production order to produce and repair items or to perform activities that are not necessarily Bill of Material items. For example, repair order for customer equipment cards, or repair order for rejected assemblies. You create special production order components manually.

    Use the Disassembly production order to decompose a parent item of the regular prduct to its components. You disassemble the product into separate parts, which can then be put into stock and sold. For example, you can purchase a used car, take it apart, and sell the individual components.

    Hi,

    Process order is generally used in process industries like

    cement,oil,etc.(where the production is continuous) whereas

    production order is used in descrete manufacturing

    scenarious.Both are work orders but will have different set

    ups for BOM,routing,etc.

    Hope this will help you.

    Reward Point if helpful.

    Thanks,
