Find out how to configure the inventory management mode in melba, manual or automatic, with or without recipe inventory

To avoid surprises, inventory management in melba is manual by default.
That is, stocks move up or down each time you click on stock actions via More actions -> destock or Other actions -> store buttons.

In order for all the raw materials used in the manufacture of the production tasks (recipes + sub-recipes) to be automatically and correctly destocked, it is therefore imperative to program each sub-recipe in a separate task.

In this example, if the bolognese sauce itself uses a homemade tomato sauce sub-recipe, it will also be necessary to plan the task beforehand to destock the direct ingredients that compose it.
Stock quantities can never be negative.
The quantities of the stock views are equal to the sum of the corresponding transactions.
Any stock operation generates transactions for accurate tracking.
These transactions can be exported and rolled back as needed.
