Help with Item conversions


I buy 1 bag of stuff from my supplier and he charges me for 1 bag of stuff.

When the bag comes, I have to take out the stuff and sort it.

1 bag equals 200 sellable things.

I’ve thought about different ways to use ERPNext to handle this but am not happy with what I’ve come up with. What do you suggest?


You can do this, conversion of Purchase UOM to stock UOM

If you do not want to track the “repack” operation, you can convert the UOM in the Purchase Receipt. Depends on whether you want to track the repack operation or not.

It is possible only, if you are generating the material request manually because if you are generating the material request using production planning tool, then system will generate the material request in stock UOM as the BOM has the usage in stock UOM.
