Goal

Purpose For Firm Planned Orders (FPOs)

In most manufacturing environments, work orders are going to reach a point at which there are limited changes that can practically be made to that work order quantity or the due date. If a work order planning message (P3411) recommends to decrease the quantity of the order, this will also affect the dependent demand on the components of that parent item. This will result in decrease messages or cancellations of related purchase orders.

As a work order progresses though production, there is a point in time where it would not be cost effective or reasonable to make any more changes. This is controlled with work orders statuses. The point at which no further changes should be made to a work order is set it to a predetermined status and it then becomes a Firm Planned Order (FPO).
