When a Works Order is created, the components, operations, attachments, documents and analysis code values are copied to it from the Bill of Materials.
In the Works Order you can make changes to any of these details – either adding, editing, or deleting information – but these changes only apply to the Works Order; the Bill of Materials is not updated.
Sometimes the changes to a Works Order need to apply to all future orders, so they should be updated back to the Bill of Materials.
Use this screen to update a Works Order’s details back to its Bill of Materials, so that it becomes the template for future orders.
If Multiple Routes is enabled, Operation details will be updated back to the Route selected when the Works Order was entered.
