Click Production in the left-hand navigation bar to begin.
Select Manufacturing from the submenu.
This screen shows all manufacturing projects and their statuses. Click + New to create a new manufacturing process.
Using the Date fields, we can enter the current date, the start date of the manufacturing process, and the date the project is due.
Click Finish to continue.
You can always go back to the Overview page for the project to update dates.Proceed to the Assign Orders tab.
We will select products from our example order, 1100. to begin. Select each SKU that you’d like to manufacture.
Ensure all desired sizes and colors are selected. When you are finished, click Assign to assign them to this project.
The assigned SKUs will now appear in the bottom table. Click the Select All button to continue.
Next, click Create Project Items to add their processes and material requirements to the project.
Click OK to confirm.
Save your work before continuing.
We will move on to the Requirements tab.
This tab is capable of estimating the material to be used by the manufacturing project. Proceed by selecting the Calculate Requirements button.
The table at top will display all materials needed.The Required column shows how much of each material is necessary.The Inventory column contains your current quantities.
The Short column subtracts the Required field from the Inventory field, showing how many units of materials, if any, you need to purchase before proceeding.
In this example, we have adequate inventory of all materials to continue, however, if any material is short, you will need to create a purchase order for the required materials.Click Save before continuing.
Next, we’ll go to the Issue POs tab.
This tab shows all processes with which to manufacture the products, along with the costs and quantities.We’ll click Issue All Process POs to create purchase orders for our vendors. When they receive this, they’ll begin manufacturing.
For this example, we have all processes being completed by one vendor. However, you can also manufacture products using multiple vendors.After POs have been issued, they’ll appear in the bottom table. Click Save to finalize their creation.
As each process is completed, you’ll receive its PO using the Receive PO button. We’ll receive them by clicking the first process PO now.
This brings us to the Receiver page. We’ll select the first PO to continue.
Click Receive All Items for the first process PO.
Since all of our process POs are with the same vendor, we’ll receive the other two process POs using the same technique.
When each PO is received, its quantity under Open in the table at left will be 0. Save before continuing.
Once the last process PO is received, the finished goods are added to inventory.Now, you may allocate these units to the appropriate order and continue on the fulfillment process.
This concludes the ApparelMagic Manufacturing Tutorial.Now, try your hand at manufacturing one of the products you have developed.
