When using Outside Operations on Manufacturing Work Orders (WO) it may, from time to time, be necessary to adjust or correct either the work order or the related purchase order (PO).  This document provides answers to a variety of situations where understanding the relationship between the WO and the PO is beneficial.  Refer to the main bulletin on this subject, E1: 30/31: Outside Operations Setup, Execution and Accounting Document 627264.1.

There is limited integration between the work order (WO) and the purchase order (PO); therefore specific changes may require manual intervention. The primary link between a WO and the outside operation PO is the Related Order Number field (RORN).

The connection between the WO and the PO must be originated by generating the outside operation from the WO routing by either Work Order Processing (R31410) or from the Work Order Routing (P3112) interactively, using the row and form exits in Manufacturing Work Orders (P48013).  The only visible connection between the two documents is the Related Order field (RORN).  Manually updating the RORN will not make all of the behind-the-scene connections needed in order to correctly link a WO and PO for use in outside operations.  The following questions detail how specific changes may be made in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.
