Access to add and change pages is restricted. By the end of the document, you should have enough information to begin your own manufacturing setup in OFBiz. This document is written for the complete novice end user. No programming or technical experience is required. The 'something' that is manufactured is generally a product that can be on-sold to customers.
Manufacturing is not only an industrial activity carried out in a factory, but it can also be any range of tasks that result in an end product.
MRP is a three-letter abbreviation that is always used in conjunction with manufacturing — so what exactly is it? It also has the added benefit of letting you know when to buy raw materials to meet your manufacturing commitments. Take a look at your business processes. You need to know what your manufacturing flows are. You should be able to define and describe the type of manufacturing you do. Make sure to document all your responses and processes. Decide on which manufacturing process or processes you'd like to use OFBiz for.
Limiting your scope reduces your risk and makes it simpler to prototype and test. If your initial process implementation is successful, then expand the prototyping to include additional processes. There are generally the two main processes that trigger when you manufacture a product. They are as follows:. There is no stock held in a warehouse or shop. Your business may use either one or a combination of these processes.
To support the above processes you also need to ensure that you have the right raw materials in stock at the right time to be able to manufacture. Each manufacturing business will be different, so for demonstration purposes, we will use an example scenario. To make one table he uses 5 pieces of wood, 20 nails and a bottle of varnish.
The completed table is then put in his shop, ready to sell to customers passing by. He likes to keep a minimum of five completed, ready to sell tables in his shop. His manufacturing process and sequence steps are:. Our Objective for OFBiz. We will setup this manufacturing business in OFBiz and configure MRP to prompt us when we need to make tables and when to order more raw materials.
Approximately 15 minutes is required to complete this step. Next, we need to create Routing Tasks. These are the individual steps that are needed to turn the raw materials into a finished product. Use Manufacturing Manager to:. The final pieces of the manufacturing setup are to:.
