Say goodbye to your legacy tools with a contemporary manufacturing ERP software that simplifies your plastic manufacturing business.
Control your plastic manufacturing line with material resource planning, work orders, job cards, and other features. ERPNext helps you account for planned and unplanned scenarios, be it using different materials or a big new contract.
Just like cheaper plastics are replacing metals in many areas, ERPNext aims to replace overpriced ERPs. Use its integrated inventory system to manage your manufacturing, suppliers, and customers — all in one software.
Keep an eye on your plastic products 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.
Plastic manufacturers have to manage thousands of product permutations, such as material or size. In ERPNext, the primary item is stored as an item template, and each of the variations is stored as an item variant.
Create BOMs (with or without operations, single or multi-level), automate the routings, and compare and update BOMs. Get started by building the BOM of your best plastic product today!
Navigate through the multiple levels of your BOMs and understand the foundation of your plastic 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 plastic 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.
Your manufacturing line may be as strong as PVC, but everyone needs help here and there. Be it coloring 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).
If you produce your plastic 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 plastic manufacturing 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.
