We are at the stage of implementing ErpNext and what we have observed so far is satisfactory. Even though i am quite happy with ErpNext, i am having some issues. One of which is about batch numbers. Let me explain the situation here.
Material-01 has a BoM which only has Material-02 in it.
Material-01 is subcontracted. I need to send Material-02 to the supplier for them to process. Afterwards what i get from the supplier, becomes Material-01. I would like to trace both Material-01 and Material-02 by assigning them batch numbers.
Everything works perfect until i try to receive Material-01 from the supplier. I am able to send Material-02 with batch no, let’s say “batch01”. When i would like to receive Material-01 from the supplier, system warns me to assign a batch number (this is what i want, i need to know which batch i use in my BoM’s in production). When i assign a batch number, let’s say, “batch02” to incoming material, i receive an error:
“batch02” is not a valid Batch Number for Item Material-02
“batch02” is a batch number for Material-01 actually. The only solution seems not using batch numbers for one of the items. But in this case i loose traceability. I am stuck here. Can anybody help?
