Would be nice to Launch Multiple Dispatches from a Single Work Order to roll-up costs from several Dispatches:
We use Multiple Crafts, at different times, on the same Charge Code with slightly varying work instructions depending upon Trade.
For example: A large Machine Shop (toolshop) project against one particular Charge Code.
Supervisor could Launch a Materials Order Dispatch to obtain necessary material. Then launch, say Dispatch2 for a machinist to complete part A (w/ EstHrs X) of the project; Dispatch3 to a machinist to complete part B (w/ EstHrs Y) of the project, Dispatch4 to a welder to join the two fixtures (w/ EstHrs Z); etc...
Its possible now, to create several different work orders and launch individual Dispatches from those, however, that places more burden on the Customer OR Supervisor to make those duplicate work orders with greater opportunity of error, approve, schedule, launch...lather,rinse,repeat It may be more convenient to have the ability to just launch multiple dispatches from a single WO.
