This table contains the purchase orders of your supply chain (replenishment you are purchasing from your suppliers), either proposed by frePPLe or confirmed.

Unique identifier for the purchase order.

Read-only boolean flag indicating whether the purchase order is violating any material, lead time or capacity constraints.
This is very handy in interpreting unconstrained plans.
The criticality is a read-only field, calculated by the planning engine.
It represents an indication of the slack time in the usage of the purchase order.
A criticality of 0 indicates that the purchase order is on the critical path of one or more demands.
Higher criticality values indicate a delay of the purchase order will not immediately impact the shipment of any demand.
A criticality of 999 indicates a purchase order that isn’t used at all to meet any demand.
Note that the criticality is independent of whether the customer demand will be shipped on time or not.
The delay is a read-only field, calculated by the planning engine.
It compares the end data of the purchase order with the latest possible end date to ship all demands it feeds on time.
