Open Source Food Manufacturing Software - Item Variants

Item Variants

Food manufacturers have to manage thousands of product permutations — such as core type (Arabica, Robusta, Liberica or Excelsa) and form (raw or roasted) for coffee. In ERPNext, the primary item is stored as an item template, and each of the variations is stored as an item variant.

Bill Of Material (BOM)

A Bill of Material is at the heart of any manufacturing ERP software, and a well-defined BOM ensures that great food goodies are on their way. ERPNext's BOM is hierarchical, with the finished product at the top. It also includes item codes, raw materials, quantities, costs and additional specifications.

Batched Inventory

Move or split batches between different warehouses. If you produce food in batches, the Batch master will come in handy to maintain manufacturing dates, expiration dates, and other details. Automate batch creation with one-click configurations, and scan item barcodes with your device camera to easily search through stock hierarchy.

Quality Inspection

Stay away from legal with quality checks at each touchpoint with a food article. Ensure food quality with Quality Inspection Templates that can be customized however you need. Until the inspection is complete, ERPNext won't allow receipt or delivery.
