When a lighting hang is begun, the first task for the Master
Electrician and crew is to gather the appropriate materials from the
lighting shop. This is where the shop order comes in. It is
the lighting designer's duty to assemble a list of all materials
required from the shop. This list includes control elements such as
lighting boards, dimmers, lighting instruments, effects devices, etc.
Each lighting designer has a favorite method for preparing shop
orders. The specific format is not important, as long as it accurately
lists all materials required for a production.
