metasfresh offers two possibilities to record the consumption of materials for production:
Prior to production, ensure that all the required products to be consumed are on stock. For information on how to create a Goods Receipt, see here.
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 .
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 material (BOM).
In the production window, click on the product you want to produce, e.g. “Carrots chopped”.
Note: If the product was assigned Packing Instructions, this will appear on the quick actions button instead of “Receive HUs”.
A new window opens up.
In the field Quantity CU enter the completed quantity of the product.
Note 1: The field Quantity TU appears only if Packing Instructions TU are available.
Note 2: The Quantity TU must be at least 1.
Note 1: The field Quantity LU appears only if Packing Instructions LU are available.
Note 2: The field Packing Instructions LU appears only if Packing Instructions TU are available.
Click “Start” to save the assignment and close the window.
When the assignment was successful you will find the assigned products underneath the product to be produced:
Select “Status: Planning complete” via the quick actions button to make the material posting. This makes the lines read-only:
The products required for the production are booked from the BOM. Adding the produced quantity works as described above.
In the production window, click on the component (CO) you want to book from the BOM, e.g. “Carrots unwashed”.
Select “Issue HUs” via the quick actions button.
An overview of the matching handling units (HU) from stock opens up.
Select the HU to be consumed for production.
Select “Issue selected HUs” via the actions button.
Note: If you want to reverse the booking, simply select the added HU, go to the quick actions button and click .
