I think this is the meaning here: the company does not wait the whole order to be completed to register part of it in the accountant "books"
I hope this helps

I can't find anything other than the usual meaning for "en dur." The amount is then decreased by the amount of the order.

Le Grand Dictionnaire terminologique traduit "en dur" avec "solid".

Go a step further and replace it by the synonym 'durable'.

Could that be the answer?
