Are sequences for discrete work orders a standard function of QAD?
No, it is not a standard QAD function, they do not exist in QAD. The sequence is used by the Work Order Production Planner only to allocate components and to calculate available capacity; it is just an additional priority flag that allows you to put one order ahead of another one, if letâ€™s say you have customer specific orders and you know that you have enough capacity only for certain quantity then you can run what-if scenarios and simulate what will happen if you change the sequence of these orders.
How does this tool differ from WO What-If tool?
Production Planner WO contains most of the functionality that WO What-If tool had, and it has additional capacity simulation functionality and slightly modified component availabilty calculation.
