I’m new to erpnext and ERP software in gneral. I’ve been playing around with erpnext for a while but I want to make sure I’m using the right tools.
I want to keep track of my manufacturing business. I’m self employed in the jewellery industry, and 90% of my jobs are made on commision and unique pieces. I take care of several activities like bench work, 3D modeling, 3D printing etc and these come at different fixed and hourly rates. I also rely on external workers for thigs such as casting, setting and shipping.
My aim is to keep track of the balance, do accounting, invoicing and keep track of deadlines + working hours. I don’t really rely on much stock, since most of the raw materials are provided by clients.
What is the best workflow? I went through the Engineer to Order video a coulple times, but I’m struggling a little to follow the videos, mostly becuse of different naming conventions between the latest version and the one shown in videos. Are there any textual resources instead with screenshots & stuff?
For instance, one of my largest doubts is this: should my several activities (bench, cadding, printing) + the external ones (setting, casting) be added as Items? Like if cadding is 25€/h should that be added in the system as an Item at selling rate 25 and then multiplied by how many hours went into that?
I do reckon my question is quite vague and my perplexities broad, but I want to make sure I’m getting this straight early on in order to minimize any correction work further on.
Thanks in advance.
