How do I produce a product?

Overview

metasfresh offers two possibilities to record the consumption of materials for production:

  1. Produce a product without consuming material.
  2. Produce a product and record the consumption of materials.

Preparation

Steps

  1. Open a completed manufacturing order.
  2. Start the action “Issue/Receipt”. The production window “PP Order Issue/Receipt” opens up.

    Note: If you have selected the manufacturing order in the list view, you can also go to the quick actions button at the top right to start the action .

a) Produce a product without consuming material

This is the easiest way to produce in metasfresh. The produced quantity is simply added to the account without booking the required products from the bill of materials (BOM).

  1. In the production window, select the product (MP) you want to produce, e.g. “Carrots chopped”.

  2. Select “Receive HUs” via the quick actions button.

    Note: If the product has packing instructions, this will appear on the quick actions button instead of “Receive HUs”.

  3. A new window opens up.

  4. Optional: Select TU Packing Instructions.
  5. Optional: Select LU Packing Instructions.
  6. In the field CU Quantity enter the received quantity of the product.
  7. In the field TU Quantity enter the number of transport units.

    Note 1: The field TU Quantity appears only if TU Packing Instructions are available.

    Note 2: The TU Quantity must be at least 1.

  8. In the field LU Quantity enter the number of loading units.

    Note 1: The field LU Quantity appears only if LU Packing Instructions are available.

    Note 2: The field LU Packing Instructions appears only if TU Packing Instructions are available.

    Note 3: The LU Quantity must be at least 1.

  9. Click “Start” to record the received HUs and close the window.
  10. When the allocation was successful, the received HUs will be listed below the product to be produced:

    Note: If you want to reverse the allocation, simply select the added HU, go to the quick actions button and click “Remove HU”.

  11. Select “Process” via the quick actions button to make the material posting. This makes the lines read-only:

  12. Click “Done” to close the window.

b) Produce a product and record the consumption of materials

The products required for the production are booked from the BOM. Adding the produced quantity works as described above.

  1. In the production window, select the component (CO) you want to book from the BOM, e.g. “Carrots unwashed”.

  2. Select “Open HU Selection Window” via the quick actions button.

  3. An overview of the matching handling units (HU) from stock opens up.

  4. Select the HU to be consumed for production.
  5. Select “Issue complete HUs” via the actions button.
  6. When the allocation was successful, you will find the issued HU below the component.

    Note: If you want to reverse the booking, simply select the added HU, go to the quick actions button and click “Remove HU”.

  7. Select “Process” via the quick actions button to book the HUs. This makes the lines read-only:

  8. Click “Done” to close the window.
