Rescheduling Procedure (Node 27)

This function activity performs a rescheduling/cancellation of work order and purchase
entities generated by the planning process. For order types Work order and Purchase
Requisition, both rescheduling and cancellation can be performed. See: Implementing
Planned Orders. For Purchase Orders, only rescheduling is performed by launching an
Oracle Purchasing workflow.
