Hi @nmoonga, I do manage an Small wood working company with ERPNext, but I focused on Integrate with the CAD software in the market, in my case (Promob) than doing huge changes in ERPNext.
As the way @Suresh_Thakor suggest, can work, only for products that don’t vary dimensionally, if this rappen, you will need to maintain a really ruge database for every partnumber you want to track.
In my ERPNext I do have some dimensional products, but I managed they by Mt2 (Square Meter), because is easy to get the pricing computing (Width X Length), instead of manage handreds of thousands of variations for every product varying in millimeters.
If you are planning to use ERPNext, the path I can recomend for you are 2:
1 - Get integrated with your CAD software, it will simplify a lot the things for you, if it’s not available, look for step 2:
2 - Build a product hierarchy instead of create variations of products
A product Hierarchy will require a custom field, with some informations Like
Morning, i might be missing something in the setup but i installed the app. created the DocType but i cant seem to find the DocType-client script.
Secondly i cant find the configurable item mentioned. all item links lead to sock/item and under variants all i see is enable variants and adding fields
Thirdly - cant find BOM doctype to set configurable. unable to procedd
Szufisher, i can find where to “create configurable item”. The images in the howto show path BUYING\ITEM where the configurable item is created but all item references are under STOCK\ITMES. in the ITEM under variants there are only attribute and manufacturer options for enable variants.
What am i missing? install went fine without error.
