Work order


The work order contains all relevant information for completing a set task. The project manager uses it to assign work to members of the project team. Together with the degree of outcome completion, work orders form the basis for monitoring progress with respect to the project. Work orders can be issued internally or externally. A work order is issued for each work package.
