What is Work Order in SFactrix MES Application?

In the manufacturing industry, Sales Orders are those product requirements given by Customers for which production should be executed to deliver the products. Timely delivery of quality products and gaining customers' trust and satisfaction is the key to any successful business.

However, Sales Order may include multiple products which may end up requiring different manufacturing processes for the product. Work Orders are the Manufacturing Orders created based on Sales Order and given to the Plant Head to run the production operations accordingly. Another way, Work Orders are the order given to the plant workforce to run the production operations.

SFactrix is a smart Manufacturing Execution System that allows creating the manufacturing orders digitally as 'Work Order'. Work Order creation should be against the customer's requirement and help timely delivery of the product. Since the orders are entered digitally, Work Order feature of SFactrix prevents human errors in manual entries of Customer Sales Orders and avoids tedious process of maintaining ledgers.
