Creating a Materials Request
The Requester creates a ticket for the materials request and the Warehouse Staff reviews the ticket for approval of purchasing and releasing. Once the request is approved, the submitted materials for request will be added to the Construction Work Order Material record, where the number of requested materials will be updated and ready for Purchase Request or releasing (if the warehouse has available supply).
