The activities associated with creating a Purchase Order or Stock Transfer Order for materials (parts, ingredients, semi-finished goods, goods, products, merchandize) or services specifically for a Sales Order or Work Order. This may include approving Purchase Requisitions and submitting these Purchase Orders or Stock Transfer Orders to supplying parties.
A Source-to-Order Purchase Order or Stock Transfer Order is typically created for and linked to a specific Sales Order or Work Order, thus enabling the receiving process to recognize the customer order or production order for which these materials where purchased.
