We have been trying to implement ERPNext in our industry where we manufacture machines for cutting. We also manufacture and regrind cutters used in our manufactured machines as well as for other similar machines available in the market. For new manufacturing the system works seamlessly and we are really impressed by the adaptability of the software.
For regrinding or servicing of the components we want your suggestion on how to implement, which is currently being done using an Access database, Following steps are involved in service scenario:
We make customers material inwards entry which has the transporter details & Customer Gate pass etc.
We issue an estimate based on the inward inspection of his components.
We receive a work order from the customer.
We issue Production order in our works to regrind the job
After completion we do outward inspection
Prepare Proforma invoice
Receive payment and send the material.
This scenario is similar to that of servicing of a four wheeler.
Thanks in advance.
The scenario worked for us and we have made custom print formats for the various reports. The frappe.get_doc command was really helpful in getting values from linked tables.
We have one more issue to address. We have two companies and we want to put an image in the company table so that we can call it in print format as per company selection. The problem is that we cannot make an attach fieldtype in the company table. We also tried to make a custom field default letterhead but the letterhead link gave error on form display. Please suggest how we should address this.
Thanks again. We are really happy to have chosen this ERP software for our company.
