Manufacturing Settings is where you can define properties and validations which will be applied to the masters and transactions involved in the Manufacturing cycle.
To access Manufacturing Settings, go to:
Home > Manufacturing > Settings > Manufacturing Settings
If enabled, materials can be consumed without immediately manufacturing finished goods in a single Work Order.
This is useful if one or more time consuming products are being manufactured. For example a single product takes a month to manufacture and the raw materials are consumed daily. In a regular scenario, this won't be feasible with stock entries. Enabling this option will allow you to create stock entries for Material Consumption without having to create an entry to backflush. End result is that you can see the stock being consumed in the Warehouses and can update the final manufacture entry for finished goods at a later stage.
The Stock Entry of type 'Manufacture' is known as backflush. Raw materials being consumed to manufacture finished goods is known as backflushing.The method selected here will be chosen for backflushing raw materials:
Capacity planning is the process in which an organization decides whether or not to accept the new orders based on the resources and existing work orders.
If checked, capacity planning won't be done. Enabling it will help to decide whether or not to accept the new orders based on the resources and existing work orders.
If enabled it'll allow creating work orders, job cards etc. outside workstation working hours.
If enabled, it'll allow production activities even on those days that are marked as holidays as per the Holiday List of the organization.
The number of days specified here means the number of days in advance when the capacity planning activities will be initiated for production.
This specifies the time span that should be kept between two operations in minutes.
This Warehouse will be auto-updated in the 'Work In Progress' Warehouse field of Work Orders.
This Warehouse will be auto-updated in the 'Target Warehouse' field of Work Order.
This Warehouse will be auto-updated in the 'Scarp Warehouse' field of Work Order.
While making Work Order against a Sales Order, the system will only allow production item quantity to be lesser than or equal to the quantity in the Sales Order. In case you wish to allow Work Order to be raised with greater quantity, you can mention the Over Production Allowance Percentage here.
Example: Sales Order is for 50 units, but your MOQ or minimum manufacturing batch might be 100, so you need to have 100% overproduction allowance to manufacture 100 instead of 50.
While making Stock Entry against a Work Order, the system will only allow production item quantity to be lesser than or equal to the quantity in the Work Order. In case you wish to allow Stock Entry to be raised with greater quantity, you can mention the Over Production Allowance Percentage here.
Example 1: Work Order is for 50 units and Stock Entry - Material Transfer for Manufacture was also executed as per the Work Order but actual production was 55 units. In this case, you need to have 10% overproduction allowance to manufacture 55 instead of 50.
Example 2: Work Order is for 50 units, but you want to produce 100 and at the same time don’t want to amend your Work Order, so you need to have 100% overproduction allowance to manufacture 100 instead of 50. This will allow you to do Stock Entry - Material Transfer for Manufacture for 100 and Stock Entry - Manufacture for 100 instead of 50.
If enabled then the cost for a corrective operation type will also be included while calculating finished goods valuation.
If enabled, the Material Transfer button will be visible and will allow you to transfer raw materials even if after the raw material requirement is fulfilled against a Job Card.
This is particularly useful in cases where the transferred raw materials are damaged and additional raw materials need to be transferred to produce the same amount of finished goods as intended.
If ticked, the BOM cost will be automatically updated based on Valuation Rate / Price List Rate / last purchase rate of raw materials.
If checked, system will automatically create the serial numbers / batches for finished goods on submission of Work Order.
