I’m a total newbie to ERP in general and in ErpNext in special. I have played with ErpNext on a locally installed instance and I find it quite close to my needs but there are specific, key items that I can’t understand yet.
Before asking for help I will briefly define my activity:
We produce items that mainly fall in 6 categories, each category having at least 5 sub-categories, with different operations.
Depending on the project, the items can be unique, or series engineered to specifications. All the Items that we produce have unique names, but in the case of series items, we can also have the same name for the entire series.
As far as I understand , I can create Item Templates that I can further use along the production process.
During a normal workflow should I create an item in ErpNext for every item I produce or I can just pick up the right piece from the templates and create a new production order ? If that’s the case, how can I change the name of the PO to be the same with the drawing number of the part I produce?
Please note that I intend to use an Erp system to follow the production, therefore i need to know at every time where are the parts, what is the last operation they have gone trough, the duration of all the performed operations.
In this case, let’s suppose I have 50 identical parts with different delivery dates, going tough 5 operations. In this case, 10 might be already cut, 10 already milled, 5 in deburring, etc. How can I update the status and track them individually?
Category: CNC milled parts
Operations - cutting, milling, deburring, wrapping
According to the 2D drawing I receive from the client, my product’s name will be 200-200. In this specific case, I will create a unique part with a unique name.
Should I create an item for it or just launch a production order based on the template previously created? How will the operators be able to fill in the times in timesheet if the timesheet name cannot be changed (eg: timesheet name: TS-000375)?
What is the intended correct workflow for this application?
