Incoming Subcontracting work

Can someone customize the process/module for subcontracting. In ERPNext there is a module for material which can be given to vendor on subcontracting basis for further processing.

There is also possibilities in many Industries that they are processing material which is send by customers to process since that particular has gt facilities and capabilities to take such subcontracting work. So there is out going subcontracting process as well as incoming subcontracting process.

With this ERPNEXT’s subcontracting module will be fullproof.

Can you detail out the specs?

I mean create a BOM. Take the incoming Material that your customer sends you and set it up as Raw Material. Take the item that you bill your customer and set it up as a Sales Item. The BOM now adds on the materials you consume during the subcontract process. If it is just job work, then there are no materials added.

If you do the same work for multiple customers, you can either turn on Batch at the Item Master level, so that you can distinguish between Customer’s raw materials, or you can create customer specific warehouses. Or you can have different Item Codes for different customers.

Or am I missing some of the details?

Thanks

Jay Dear Sir,
Yes, this is also subcontracting process
called as a ( incoming subcontracting) and if the customer provides
material and processed then only labour charges are billed. Yes, there can
be BOM for this incoming subcontracting work. This is happening for many of
the engineering companies especially who are undertaking heavy fabrication
work, Laser cutting jobs etc.
In pharma or chemical companies (process
Industries) the process is called as a loan licensing and all the QC tests
and parameters are applicable for this.
I will try to prepare a write up
on this and can send you later on.
I can also send mock up for this
process and for QC test, parameters process.
Only thing is that I am new
on ERPNext and do not have full version.
I have got total 36+ years of
experience - out of that I was in Industries(Engineering, Automobile,
Process, Consumer Products) for 20 years in their computer/software
department and developed all functional modules that time as a homegrown
S/w development and then I was there in IT company like Patni Computers and
IBM for 13 Years. Right now I am a consultant for ERP and worked mainly on
Microsoft Dynamics and SAP Business One products.
I liked ERPNext and it
is growing and making good pace with latest technology with fulfillment of
needs of business. Great Going!! Hence would like to contribute something
or suggesting some gaps for the ERPNext ERP. Since I was using old
technology so trying to learn new technologies also.
