What should be best way to handle raw material if we implement ERPNext in metal processing unit.
Expected UOM Planning:
Purchase UOM: kg.
Manufactuing unit: sq cm, sq mm
Inventory Unit: Sheets (Primary focus).
I have a use case, where we get fixed sizes of metal sheets let say 10x5 ft and 4x8 ft.
- 3 sheets of 10x5.
- 4 sheets of 4x4
We will be making parts out of these sheets.
Let see we make only 2 parts of size 5x5 sq cm (for this only 1 sheet will be slightly used around 3-5%).
Now how can we maintain the stock in number sheets as 1 sheet (4x8) will be partially used,
technically 2 complete sheets (4x8) and 3rd sheet (4x8) with 95% will be available.
Now, when any sheet is partially used then its physical appearance is change, it will loose its shape so now what should we call that sheet for future as its no long 4x8 sheet in phyiscal size and appearance.
P.S: Whenever we make any thing out of those sheets every time we will have unique sizes of sheets after every process, now how can we reconcile our inventory for effective utilization and raw material procurement.
Have a good day.
