I would like to indicate that I’m new with ERP in general and new with ErpNext. We have an ERpnext server running since 3 months only. We are running full cycles of selling/purchase/manufacturing in parallel of our “rich paper application” and I’m very pleased to see all the improvements ErpNext is bringing to us.
In our business we are manufacturing on order. Our items are an assembly of 25 items configured in a BOM. The selling orders are contening 10 differents items per one or two units. A typical order is 10 lines, with 10 items, each one or two units. we are running about 40 orders a day.
Production is plannified for one to 3 days. It means that a production run is going to manufacture 400 items for shipping around 40 orders.
I would like to describe what I do in front of my ErpNext to manage that production:
- open an order -> make material request of type manufacture
- open the material request -> make production order. 10 productions orders are made (one per item)
- open a production order, choose WIP warehouse (see https://github.com/frappe/erpnext/issues/6636), save and submit click Yes for quantity to manufacture.
- on production order click start, make 1x quantitiy,
- stock entry (source to wip), save and submit
- back to production order, finish make 1x.
- stock entry (wip to target warehouse) save and submit.
Repeat that cycle for the 10 items multiply 40 orders. Means a lot of click and time
Is there some ways to improve that? is it the right way of doing things?
