Prediko enables you to keep track of your Raw Materials and to raise Production Orders for Finished Goods based on the Bill of Material.

"I have my full catalogue of raw materials now in Prediko. I can order easily and see the number of units in stock - which helps me greatly to know if I have enough on hand to fulfil my Production Order!"

Quick guide to Raw Materials

Step 1: Create Raw Material Catalogue.

Go to Raw Material > Catalogue > Add Raw Material.

You can also upload in bulk via Import

Step 2: Add correct Units in Stock, Supplier and Lead Time days.

Step 3: Create a PO for Raw Materials if you need to order more.

We sync inventory from your POs to the Catalogue page. Such as when you receie units, the "Units in Stock" will be increased.

Step 4: Create a Bill of Material for the Finished Good.

Go to Raw Material > Bill of Material > Add Bill of Materials.

  • Select Products that need Bill of Materials and select SKUs that share the same Bill of Material

  • Select Raw Materials (that you have previously created) and add quantity

  • Add Production Days

Step 5: Now you can see the related Raw Materials on the SKU page.

Step 6: Create Production Order

Production Order = the order for finished good items that have Raw Materials associated
