Using the purchase order rule wizard

Using the purchase order rule wizard

The Purchase Order rule wizard is developed using the rule wizard framework of Business Process Server. This rule wizard generates rules that enable you to monitor and analyze incoming purchase orders. For example, you can use infopads to capture relevant purchase order data, trigger alerts based on the total price of a purchase order, calculate the average price of a purchase order, or periodically send summary reports to executives. In the following sections, different options of the Purchase Order template, such as triggering e-mails based on the total price limit of a purchase order, displaying price averages of purchase orders, and calculating the number of purchase orders per each state are reviewed.
For more information on creating new Rule Wizards using the Rule Wizard framework, refer to chapter "Using the rule wizard framework" in the Application Developer’s Guide.
For more information on rule wizards that are available in Business Process Server, see the chapter "Defining Rules with Rule Wizards" in the OpenEdge Getting Started: Developing BPM Applications with Developer Studio.
