There are different ways to set a batch as completed.
One of these is by scanning a frame label at a QC station at the end of the production line.
If every item in the batch is scanned, the batch will be set as completed.
If every item in an order is scanned, the order will change it’s status to be “ready to ship”.
If there is no bar-code scanning to set the product as completed, then it is possible to manually complete the batch.
To do so, click on “Complete” when the batch has been processed.
