I am currently assessing ERPNext to see if it will satisfy our stock control and manufacturing.
It is looking like a feature rich application.
We manufacture electronic devices using a factory and supply the raw materials/components for the factory to assemble into the finished assembly.
I can see how we create all the items for capacitors, resistors, ic’s etc and then apply those to the BOM for the finished assembly.
We can have a number of different manufacturers for a component used e.g.
CAP-10U010805 can be manufactured by Yageo, Samsung or another manufacturer of the same rating and package size.
We purchase normally dependant upon availablility as they all do the same job.
Is there any way to specify the different manufacturers as the same part number ?
We supply our BOM to the factory with the allowable substitutions listed, can these also be listed in the BOM ?
This may be outside of the capabilities on ERPNext but would be great if it supports this kind of manufacturing.
