"Work Order "

A Work order is authorization to produce a defined quantity of an item by a certain date.

A work order is an authorization to produce a defined quantity of an item by a specific date. Work orders are typically used in manufacturing and other production-based businesses. In a manufacturing setting, a work order usually includes information about the particular product to be produced and the quantity, date, and further relevant details.  

Work orders can be created manually or generated automatically based on sales orders or other customer requests. Work orders may sometimes be created based on predefined schedules or plans. Once a work order is made, it is typically assigned to specific employees or teams responsible for completing the work.  

Work order management is a critical part of any business that relies on production or manufacturing.
