Manage production orders with Clougistic based on (nested) bill of materials.

MBOM Manufacturer Bill of Material

Create nested Bill of Materials to trigger replenishment. Replenishment will create all orders & production orders to complete the needed product.

Production order to start Production

Production is basically a need for a finished product.

Supplier to fullfill production orders

The finished product is produced by a supplier. To manage manufacturing:

  • create a supplier for production
  • add the finished product to the Clougistic productlist and add a replenishpolicy.
  • add the product to the supplier-products.

Production order

The supplier will receive a production order to deliver the product. Production orders are listed in supply > prodution.

Supply production with (raw) material SKU's

Add a manufacturer bill of material to a finished product and clougistic will supply production with raw materials from the inventory.

Print GTIN productlabels

If the finished product has a GTIN (EAN/UPC) (see product details) and the GTIN printnode is added to the design, it will print Code 128 barcodes for the finished product during packing.

Material SKU stockmanagement

Manage stock of the raw material by adding a replenish policy to the material SKU's the same way as a finished product.

Purchase a MBOM product without using the MBOM material SKU's

If a SKU has a MBOM attached it's still possible to buy the same SKU (without production) at a different supplier. Follow these steps:

  1. add a supplier with a product matching the MBOM SKU
  2. create a supplier products list with the SKU and set the field supply_mbom for this SKU to "0"
  3. import the supplier productlist to the supplier
  4. check if there is a match and if the value in the supplier productlist is set to "No" on the screen
  5. create a new Purchase Order for this supplier and add the SKU.
  6. process it.

If everything is ok, the MBOM is not been processed.

Cost Price calculation for finished product with MBOM

The cost price calculation will run upon reception of the finished product if the product unit price in the purchase order is set to zero (0) and if there is an MBOM order to supply production. Otherwise it will use the cost set in the supplier products list.

The calculation is based on the products in the MBOM order to supply production.
