I did a little research and I located a reference in a ver 6 manual that
indicates that E means WAITING.

I'm not sure that the E really means that nothing has been done. We have
14 SO's with the E and all but one show the finished qty equal to the qty
required. They are all still SO id. We are on 6.0.4. I had never even
noticed this status before this email. We typically do not see them so
I'm not sure what it means. Most of ours go directly into a 4.

Re: [BPCS-L] FSO Shop Order Status

This is version specific.

In 405 CD
E = Order that nothing has yet been done on,
Y = Order allegedly completed.
X = Order that someone has deleted.
4 & 5 not valid ... either a modification, or a different version

When shop order purge is run, orders coded "Y" are NOT purged if there's
missing postings. For example, to make the order we need to issue some
quantity of material. If less than that reported, then order not purged.

This topic confuses many of my people.
I tell them
(a) if you have an order that is partially completed, and you want to end
it, my advice is to change the order quantity to what we actually made,
run a ZERO quantity ZERO time labor ticket thru, because then BPCS will
revisit all operations and code them completed, and the order will go away
in next purge.
(b) if you force close the order, BPCS will NOT update itself with costs
statistics associated with any work that was done on the order.
