|What is Purchase Order?
Purchase order (PO)
A legal document to another entity requesting for supply of goods / services for specific terms and conditions.
The buying entity’s request or instruction to a vendor
(external supplier) to supply certain materials or render/perform certain
services/works, formalizing a purchase transaction.
What is Work Order (WO)?
This term is used in many places.. In the Production Planning module, Production orders for assembly is a work order.
In the Plant Maintenance module, internal work orders are used for Maintenance / Repairs / Installation, modification or removal of equipment’s
The exact definition varies in different organizations. This is typically a PO for services to be done within the company premises (Work inside the company - hence work order).
I have also seen it being used for PO for maintenance orders (for materials and services).
