Abstract

This article describes a method whereby users of a manufacturing accounting and production information control program may review and maintain customer orders, and pertinent information within those orders, and to store orders, item comments and special charge descriptions using Order Entry and Invoicing (OE&I) data entry. During customer order processing, users have been limited in their ability to review customer orders, add items to the orders, and to change information within the customer order. Order quantity for an item previously ordered could not be changed; the customer order had to be deleted and entered again. In addition, users have had to key individual order comments, individual item comments, and/or special charge descriptions, when required, for every customer order entered or maintained in OE&I.
