A purchase order tracks what you ordered from the vendor and the estimated delivery date.
Receipts are the verification of what and how much your operation received from a vendor.
The data from entering Purchase Orders, then verifying what was received from the PO in a Receipt is used in calculations such as Warehouse Rationing, Order Fill %, and Suggested Order Quantity.
