Use this form to create and maintain the base status codes. The Base Status function is used to maintain the various status types, subsequent statuses, other status related conditions and stages. The use of the Status Codes in each business process enforces certain business rules, as defined by the user The business rules applicable to the different processes ensure that best practices are executed within the applicable sub-module.

The progression of the different business processes are defined by the allocated status sequence set up for the specific Status Type. The system is released pre-configured with various status codes. The user can change the interaction between these codes but not the codes itself. The user can for instance configure he sequence and loops between statuses.

In addition stages can be defined within a Status. No formal business logic is attached to a Stage and the latter gives the user more control of his process. During implementation it will be possible to attach certain business logic (such as “Alerts”) to user defined stages.


In general it is proposed that users do not change the existing status codes, but to merely select which codes are to be used and the sequence between these codes.
