What is an Ordered Route?

An ordered routing causes the routing entity to wait until an order signal is received (see Order Signals). Entities will wait in the output queue of the activity (or in the storage) from which the Ordered routing is connected until the Order Signal is received. If you want to continue processing entities behind the entity waiting for an order signal, make sure the capacity of the output queue or storage is sufficient.


• Just-in-time systems require that production inventory is controlled. The Ordered route in conjunction with the Order Signal allow the control of when and how much is ordered from an upstream activity.
