Set aside spreadsheets and focus on cutting metal sheets. ERPNext helps handle all of the manufacturing flows so you can craft precision-cut machinery that will stand the test of time.
Increase productivity, manage your supply chain smoothly, and get your metal tools to distributors and consumers faster. ERPNext is fabricated with integrated inventory support to manage your manufacturing, suppliers, and customers — all in one software.
Total Control Over Your Production Cycle
Keep an eye on your metal business and ensure orders are fulfilled with our Production Analytics Report — an aggregated view of production status. It includes several reports to help you analyze manufacturing load and make insightful decisions.
Metal fabricators have to manage thousands of product permutations, such as finish or length. In ERPNext, the primary item is stored as an item template, and each of the variations is stored as an item variant.
Navigate through the multiple levels of your BOMs and understand the foundation of your metal products. With the BOM Browser, you can not only view the BOMs of sub-assemblies, but also update them in real time to maintain accurate costs based on stock value and ongoing procurements.
With the Job Cards, Operations, and Workstations features, you can automatically capture mundane activities on your shop floor. A single screen shows the real-time status of job work, the location of each workstation, employee assignments, and the status and next steps of each work order.
Material procurement and production planning for metal products can become complicated with the sheer number of variants. Be it a work order against sales or material requests, ERPNext will show every aspect of your MRP. Track material consumption of batched inventory to curb expenses and achieve zero wasted resources.
To maintain a rigid manufacturing line, you may need to subcontract metal fabrication processes from time to time. Be it drawing or packaging, some jobs have to be outsourced. Use the Subcontracting feature to supply raw materials to a third-party distributor or supplier and easily track all activities.
Optimize your workstations based on the resources available for open production orders. Identify and eliminate bottlenecks at the shop-floor level by creating a capacity plan. You can also maintain and manage planning schedules for a predefined period of time (30 days, 45 days, etc).
Move or split batches between different warehouses. If you produce your metal products in batches, the Batch master will come in handy to maintain manufacturing dates, expiration dates, and other details. Scan item barcodes with your device camera to easily search through your stock and make data-driven decisions.
Don't let systems stop you from measuring materials exactly the way you want! Keep track of different units of measurement for your inventory. Set up conversion factors in the Item master itself and facilitate smooth sales, purchase, and stock transactions. All conversions will be handled by the system.
Use the supplier portal to help suppliers manage themselves. The suppliers can submit requests for quotations and automatic supplier quotations, or access ongoing purchase orders and receipts. Suppliers can also raise purchase invoices for fulfilled orders. You can then verify these invoices for final approval.
To prevent stockouts, track an item's reorder level. When the stock level goes below the reorder level, ERPNext will automatically create a material request. This helps you replenish inventory at exactly the right time and reduce chances of stock exhaustion.
Create your own custom metal fabrication ERP software. Map your most important data by adding custom fields in your forms. Customize form behavior by auto-fetching values, hide fields based on user roles, and create custom print formats — all without a single line of code.
All the tools you need to achieve manufacturing excellence are part of the world’s first smart, DIY ERP. Transform your organization with excellent documentation and video tutorials that facilitate a zero-touch, super fast ERP implementation.
Control your paper manufacturing line with material resource planning, work orders, job cards, and other features to account for planned and unplanned scenarios. Record scraps, assign them value and sell or reuse them.
Figure out how to get products to market faster, while keeping costs down and minimizing liability. ERPNext provides not just production planning, but also integrated inventory, document storage and more.
