"Issued" status in work order

I was thinking it might be useful to have a new status in Work Order for “Issued”. Oftentimes work orders are created well in advance (since they can take time or for other reasons). Just because a work order is created and submitted in the system does not mean that production should start for that item. An alternative is to leave the work order in Draft until production can start but this implies that the work order itself may see some changes.

What do you all think?

Umm…you can choose to leave the Work Order in the “Draft” state…

Alternatively, by default, even if WO is submitted, it doesn’t mean that the manufacturing has started. WO has “Not Started” which sort of means it is issued but yet to start :wink:
