How to create Multiple finished products from a single production order?

In my scenario, one bill of material need to produce multiple sub-finished products which go through different manufacturing processes to produce a single final finished product .

Is it possible in erpnext to have production order to output multiple products ?

@Savad_Ibrahim
You can try nested BOM structure for adding sub-finished products in a single finished group.

For production order, you will have to create separate production order for sub-finished product and then they can be used in the final Production order.
Please refer the link below to learn more about nested BOM.

Hope this helps

What Im looking at is Reverse Bom functionality where raw material is the parent and Finished products are child of the Raw material .

This is required in case of Plywood industry

hi Saved_Ibrahim

you mean you want to disassemble FG?

Not really.In Plywood Industry,Peeling Machine peels timber logs into sheets of core veneer of different lengths .

So,the raw material is Timber log and the FG will be multiple products(sheets of different size) as output of the manufacturing operation of peeling.

What I require here is to predefine the different outputs of the peeling process from an input item/set of inputs

@Savad_Ibrahim, This is an interesting case as it challenges ERPNext’s single product output’s default use case. BTW have you made any progress on this problem?

Not yet .We are thinking on developing a new app which suits our requirements and do api calls to erpnext application .

This is what we did finally

UAE base Group of Companies are facing problem in Manufacturing Module due to " Multi Raw Materials and Multi Finish Goods, weighting scale,

Nature of Business: Used Clothes
Example which may relate to original case

Multi Raw Material are Below:

Used Clothes Origin - A - 80KG
Used Clothes Origin - B - 90KG
Used Clothes Origin - C - 50KG

Multi Finished Goods are Below

Men Shirt 40kg Bundle- Qty 2 ( 2 x 40 = 80kg )
Boy Shirt 40kg Bundle- Qty 3 ( 2 x 40 = 120kg )
Scrap 1kg bundle Qty 20 (20 x 1 = 20 kg )

Explanation: Whenever we are producing the FGs we do not have exactly idea that what item will be produced more so FGs are uncertain.

#Savad_Ibrahim : how you can help us in above concern?

What’s the problem you are trying to solve with ERPNext? You can’t use a BOM for the scenario you described.

You have two options:

Make Stock Entry Purpose: Manufacture and consume the Input Materials by pointing the source warehouse to the warehouse where the raw materials are on ERPNext. And add the finished goods by pointing the Target Warehouse where you want to drop the Finished Goods to. If you have Perpetual Inventory turned on, you have to enter the valuation rates of the Finished Goods and the imbalance will be charged to the Difference Account.

Push out Raw Materials using Stock Entry Purpose: Material Issue and, if you have perpetual inventory turned on, charge it to an account, say Manufacturing Variabilities. Now as you start generating finished goods, make a Stock Entry Purpose Material Receipt. You will have to set the Valuation Rates of the items and charge it to the same Manufacturing Variabilities account. The balance in the Manufacturing Variabilities account will indicate to you whether you are getting better yields or worse yields than what you were expecting.

This is just the entry. If you want to forecast, you have to build slightly more complicated models.

Not sure if this helps, but this whole stuff is a bit complicated, especially from the accounting and forecasting angles.

Thanks

Thank You Sir

Thank You,

Please find the attached file for further brief,

As you suggest two options,

Bar-code labeling we are going to place as produce, so stock entry we could not.
