Starting the Manufacturing Process
Once you have created the semi-finished product of pull tea, now is the time for us to go to the Productions sub-menu to start the manufacturing process. This sub-menu will appear after you install the Advanced Inventory Management add-on . You can find this sub-menu under the Catalog menu. Next, follow these steps to find out how to start the manufacturing process.
Step 1 : To start the manufacturing process, click Add Production as shown below.
Step 2: Input pull tea in the Find Products column.
Step 3: Next, you can enter the amount of tea you want to produce in the Quantity column.
Step 4: Then, you can disable the Start production automatically button if you want to save the semi-finished products that you have entered now to be edited later. Keep the buttons on if you want to start the production right away.
Step 5: In the Details column, you can specify the outlet where your manufactured goods will be stored. Raw materials will also be taken from the outlet that you have selected.
Step 6: To complete the production process directly, click Save when the Start production automatically button is enabled.
Step 7: A confirmation pop-up will appear to warn you that the production process cannot be edited once it's started. Click Proceed to continue.
