Linking a packaging work order to a production job
When scheduling a packaging work order, you have the option to link it to an existing production job by selecting the Link matching production job field. This links your packaging work order to a production job that matches the packaging stock item and the scheduled date of the work order.
In the example below, we have an existing production job named JX17CH48 singles production“that has a date duration of 1 Oct 2017 to 31 Oct 2017 and an expected stock item JX17CH48 750ml.
We then create a packaging work order for the stock item JX17CH48 750ml with a scheduled date of 26 Oct 2017. Select the Link matching production job field, and then click Add to work order.
In the Link this bottling to a production job? dialogue box, the matching production job is displayed. You have the option to either link to that production job or create a new one. In the example below, we have clicked Link to production job.
When you view your scheduled packaging job, you can see the linked production job.
