The Manufacturing Order (MO) records what needs to be made and what has been made. MOs work with our Bill of Materials. To learn what the Bill of Materials is, see this help article.

To start, you must have created a Bill of Materials (BOM) in Ordoro. If you need to create a BOM, see here for details on how to do this.

How to create a Manufacturing Order

Now that you’ve created your BOM containing your recipe to manufacture finished goods, you’re ready to do the cooking!

1. Go to the Manufacturing tab in Ordoro.

2. Select Initiate an MFG Order.

3. The Initiate an MFG Order modal will open. In this modal, you can update the following fields:

  1. MFG Order ID: This is pre-populated, but can be changed to whatever identifier you would like.
  2. Assigned Warehouse:
    1. This is the warehouse from which Ordoro will change inventory.
    2. When a MO is finished, inventory from the component products will be reduced, and inventory for the finished BOM will increase.
  3. Notes for Manufacturer: This text will appear on the MO sent to your Manufacturer.
  4. Internal Notes: Text in this field will not appear on the MO sent to your Manufacturer.

4. In the Initiate an MFG Order modal, you’ll also add your finished BOM SKU.

  1. Select Add a Product and then search for your BOM SKU.
  2. Add the BOM SKU to the Manufacturing Order.
  3. List the quantity you are creating. This is the number of finished product(s) you will have once manufacturing is complete.

5. Select Create and View MFG Order.

6. The Manufacturing Order is now in the Initiated status.


How to share your Manufacturing Orders

1. To send your MO over to your Manufacturing team, you can either:

  1. Give the Manufacturing team access to Ordoro (and these Manufacturing orders).
  2. Print/download the MO to give to the Manufacturing team.
    1. To do this, select Preview/Print on the Manufacturing Order Detail page.

2. On the print preview screen, you can print or download the Manufacturing Order.

  • The example below is from Google Chrome, so if you use a different browser, your options may look different.

How to complete a Manufacturing Order

The final step is to convert the components into finished products in Ordoro. Once the Manufacturing team has created the items, you’ll need to update the MO to mark them as finished.

1. Go to the Manufacturing tab in Ordoro and select the MO to update.

2. On the MO Details page, select the number under Finished and enter the completed quantity.

3. When the finished quantity is saved on the MO, Ordoro will:

  • Reduce the Physical on Hand of the component products
  • Increase the Physicla on Hand quantity of the BOM product
  • These calculations are based on the BOM quantity needed and the quantity on the Manufacturing Order.

Below, see the inventory before the MO is updated.

  • Component 1 = 100
  • Component 2 = 100
  • Finished Good = 0

In the screenshot below, the MO has been updated with a Finished Qty. See how inventory is reduced from the components.

  • Component 1 = 60
    • The Finished Good required 4 of these.
    • 10 Finished Goods were created.
    • Therefore, Ordoro reduced the inventory by 40 (4 * 10)
  • Component 2 = 80
    • The Finished Good required 2 of these.
    • 10 Finished Goods were created.
    • Therefore, Ordoro reduced the inventory by 20 (2 * 10)
  • Finished Good = 10
    • The MO was updated with a quantity of 10 so this value increased.

4. Final step is to change the status of the Manufacturing Order to Finished.

  • Select Update Status at the top of the MO Details page, then select Finished and Save.
