Manufacturing ➔ Entries ➔ Authorise production
Authorizing production orders is a step used for checking production orders before they are processed. However, authorization is an optional process as it depends on the settings at System ➔ General ➔ Settings, under Manufacturing settings. If the Use authorise check box (under the Production order status section) is selected, then authorization becomes mandatory. Otherwise, the production orders created will be authorized automatically.
Only employees with the proper rights (defined at System ➔ HR & Security ➔ Security roles, and added to the personal cards of the employees under the Rights tab at HR ➔ People ➔ Maintain) are allowed to authorize production orders.
