Process Order: Link to the Order Information System


The order information system enables you to select objects (operations, phases, completion confirmations, etc.) from the process order, and display them in an object overview.

Selection criteria

On the initial screen of the order information system, you can either enter the conditions for selecting objects individually, or using an overall profile defined in Customizing.

You can restrict the selection of orders using the following criteria:


Order type


MRP controller

Production scheduler



You can also:

Enter a selection profile that selects orders by their status (system status, or user status at header level)

Specifiy if orders with a deletion flag is active should be considered for selection.

The following objects can be selected from the process order:

Order header

Order item



(Individual) capacity requirements

Completion confirmation (for the order header, phase, secondary resources)

Goods receipt

Incomplete goods receipt

Purchase requisition

Purchase order

Object overview

The object overview displays the objects selected from the process orders. The relationship between the objects (component allocation to an operation, or completion confirmation to an order header) can be seen in the list. For every object selected, a header can be displayed that describes the chosen fields. You can change the listing as required so that the most important information for you is listed in first place.

You can vary the object overview as follows:

Suppressing non-relevant orders

You have selected all orders to which a particular component has been allocated. Two of these orders are of particular interest. You can then hide the remaining orders.

Suppressing non-relevant objects

You can hide all data that is currently irrelevant for you. To do this you deselect the corresponding object.

Compressing selected objects

For example, you have selected completion confirmations. However, as you only want to process the operations, you compress the object 'completion confirmations'.

Displaying particular fields/Changing the field sequence

For example, you have selected operations. As an exception, you want to display the field 'confirmed time', or place it at the beginning of the line instead of a the end. You change the fields displayed via field selection, or change the field display sequence for the object 'operations'.

Refreshing individual/all orders

If you have carried out business operations (release, availability check, completion confirmation, etc.) for several orders, you should refresh the complete list.

However, if you have only processed a few orders, for performance reasons, you may wish to refresh only those orders in the list that have been changed.

Object detail list

For every object read from the database, you can either enter the followng conditions manually, or define them using a single profile:

Fields, for which the objects can be displayed

Layout of the fields (grouping, or width of field columns, for example)

Selection profile to enable an object to be displayed independent of its status.

For more detailed information on the order information system, see the R/3 Library Process order.

Damage caused to data by errors

Software/hardware requirements

Installation information

System administration changes

Change system parameters in customizing

If the selection is to be controlled using an (overall) profile, this profile must be defined in the Customizing for Process Order (see Define profile for order information system).

Effect on batch input

Changes to the interface

In the Process orders menu, there is a new function called Reporting.
