dropdown – How to view and edit different states of a system for the supply chain


As for the supply chain, I can consider two options: a drop-down menu indicating the status of the order, such as not launched, processed shipped. Or a slider as a mechanism showing progress toward the end, similar to the way the shipping sites do it.

Are there other ways to do it and best practices to consider?

States would not be started, in the process, shipped, arrived, canceled.

The drop-down list does not allow you to view all of them at the same time, which is less desirable, however, if you need to manually change the desired state.

The current design is below. I think it's redundant to have both, but if the user can change the status, I'm not sure to like the slider with notches on the drop-down menu.
