Production Order Release

Hi Gurus,

Please explain me what is the need of Releasing Production Orders.

Why we r not able to do Goods movement (MB1A OR MB31) with out releasing of Production Orders after conversion from Planned Orders.

Thanks and Regards,

Release of order in practical sense is you are releasing the order to shop floor to execute. For execution you need to draw the raw material to production hence MB1a is used. After the production you need to update the product inventory hence MB31 is used.

Until release, the production order is just created and no goods movement is allowed..i,e practically you will not issue any material to that production order which is not released to shop floor and can not have good receipt of that product.

This is the practical importance of release of order.

please come back if you need more explanation.
