Ordering system.  A proforma is created and tracked. Once the proforma is approved by the customer, the system moves to the WorkOrder stage. The workorder tracks production and labels. Once the products are marked as produced, the system moves to the Pallet Shipping stage.  At the pallet stage, the items added to pallets.  Multilpe pallets can be used, each product can be spread across multiple pallets and products out of stock can be backordered to a later shipment. Once complete, the system moves on to the Packing List where weights are confirmed and extra information for import/export customs is added. Once the pallet is completed, the invoice is created. Once customer receives the product, the accountant records the order and permanently closes the order.
