Process Orders, sometimes also known as Works Orders are a request to make "x" units of a certain material which is issued to a Production Line.
Process Orders can be created manually within Commander using the Admin screen shown above. However if you wish you can link Commander4j to external systems and have these Process Orders imported/updated automatically as a part of a background Interface.
