Integral Logistics Management — Operations Management and Supply Chain Management Within and Across Companies

15.1 Order Release

Intended learning outcomes: Describe order proposals for production and procurement as well as order release. Explain load-oriented order release (Loor) and capacity-oriented materials management (Corma).



The order release changes the status of an order from “proposed” to “released” and triggers the flow of goods to a procurement process or production process.

Generally, for an order release, the availability of all resources needed to execute the order must be checked, in particular the availability of components and capacity.
