Ive recently been introduced to ERPnext and I am struggling to define the way to use the manufacturing Module for making items from steel where variable sizes items may be needed from the same raw material, which comes in standard or bespoke sizes
If we manufacture a simple Bench and use tube for the legs and some strengthening beams.
The tubes will all be specific lengths and we will need to plan the best cutting regime to get the maximum from each standard length of steel. If I say that the bench has 2 beams 2.5 m and legs of length 0.4 m. The standard length of our tube is 6 m.
If I set up each part with the quantity I can get from a standard length for the beam it will be 2 with scrap of 1 m for the beams and 15 for the legs.
For the best use of material we would want to factor in using the 1m length for 2 legs and reduce the scrap.
This is a simple explanation but the same issue arises cutting for parts from standard steel sheets.
Any thoughts ?
