I just came across ERPNext and it looks very promising. I have installed it on my VirtualBox and started to play around with it.
We are an ice cream company. I defined the BOM with our various ingredients (Milk, Cream, Sugar, etc.) and that looks very good. I like how it calculates the standard cost based on that.
First question: Would you use the packaging material as part of the ingredients to add the costs for that?
Second question: When we produce the ice cream based on the recipe, we sometimes have varying yields. If it’s a single batch that we produce, we might be able to make 4 tubs, if it’s a subsequent batch, we might be able to make 5 tubs out of the same recipe. When I define the BOM to create 4, then I can’t enter 5 when submitting the completed work order. How would I do that?
Third question: While it has created a batch number based on the structure I have defined, is it later possible to scan a QR Code based on that batch number when picking the tubs from the freezer?
