We have similar problem. In manufacturing, each item is finally packed into a box, carton, or pallet, and each packing item should have it’s on serial number. For example. 1 mug is placed in a carton, and that carton is assigned a unique number. The same carton is then placed on a pallet, which in turn gets another serial number.
ERPNext does not seem to have any out-of-the-box solution for this.
If we are to create a new item, e.g. an item for Carton (containing 48 mugs per carton), then our inventory starts will show 1 Carton but I won’t know how many mugs are in stock.
I’m hoping one of the ERPNext gurus can shed light on this. @umair @JayRam
