Seeing What Orders have been Placed Upon Us for a Part
Sometimes we will be subject to orders placed on us from other divisions, who
need some parts that we typically have in stock. These orders (known as Internal
Orders, or IOs) are recorded on the system as Scheduled Issues. These are visible
from within MM and Promis, although MM provides the more concise description.

From here is is simply a matter of keying in the part concerned and
looking to see what MM provides. The scheduled issues are presented in
the bottom right quadrant (the scheduled receipts, i.e. parts coming in,
are on the left) and show the IO number, the date it is due to go and
the quantity to be sent.
This information can be gleaned from Promis' Gross Requirements
Review. If the gross requirements are examined, they will display all IOs
as well as local work orders and forecasts. The only problem with this method
is that the person examining the gross requirements must be canny enough to spot
an IO number as opposed to actual build or flex.
