Modern, DIY ERP For Food Manufacturers
Say goodbye to your legacy tools with a contemporary manufacturing ERP software that will accelerate your food manufacturing business.
Best-In-Class Food Manufacturing Software
Food manufacturing is complex, be it dealing with quality assurance checks, constantly changing food prices, eco-friendly packaging, or the competition to keep up.
Increase productivity, manage your supply chain smoothly and get your food to distributors and consumers faster with ERPNext. It's packed with integrated inventory to manage your manufacturing, purchases, sales, suppliers, and customers — all in one software.
Total Control Over Your Production Cycle
Keep an eye on your food manufacturing 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.
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.
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.
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.
Material Resource Planning
Material procurement and production planning for food products can become complicated. 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.
Factory Floor Management
With ERPNext's Job Cards, Operations and Workstations features, you can automatically capture daily activities on your factory floor. View real-time status of the job work being done to manufacture products, the location of every workstation, employee assignments, and each work order's current status and pending steps — all in one screen.
Does your business involve outsourcing processes to a supplier? Check out the Subcontracting feature in ERPNext. It makes it easy to supply raw materials and track suppliers' labour and operations. Finished goods are valued based on the cost of raw materials and procured services.
Use serial numbers to uniquely identify units. Set up naming series, and ERPNext will automatically create serial numbers for new stock. You can even scan item barcodes via your device camera for easy search through all your stock.
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).
Multiple Units Of Measure
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.
Quick Stock Balance
With the Quick Stock Balance report, you can perform stock audits to verify stock at the warehouse, and check it against stock logged in the system. Simply scan a barcode with any device (no barcode scanner required!) and start counting.
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 cloud manufacturing ERP software. Map your most important data by adding custom fields in your forms. Customize form behaviour by auto-fetching values, hide fields based on user roles, and create custom print formats — all without a single line of code.
