You can now edit ingredients and operations lists on MOs

⟵ Back to all news

Good news! 🎉

We’ve just updated Katana with a brand-new feature which allows you to edit ingredients and operations lists on manufacturing orders (MOs). 🤘

If you need to add an item to your product, such as a custom design, color or engraving, then this feature comes in extra handy for you. Or perhaps you sell products with a long list of custom parameters your customers can choose from. In this case it’s going to be a lot easier to keep one product variant and then adjust the ingredients on the MO based on the parameters your customer has selected. 

It basically means that you can now create a new MO with the default product recipe and then make adjustments on the MO where needed.  

For example, let’s take a manufacturer who sells simple and custom-design T-shirts. A sales order comes in with the custom attribute “Unicorn” image sticker. To adjust the ingredients list all you have to do is open the manufacturing order, click “+ Add new row" under “Ingredients” and add “Sticker on textile / Unicorn”.

The same applies to the operations list. In the example above, the custom sticker order means that an additional operations step is necessary. Scroll to the operations section on the same MO and click “+ Add new row” to add the new step “Apply sticker on T-shirt", as well as the associated resource, time and cost. 

You can of course add, remove and edit the ingredients and operations lists as you wish. 

Hopefully this feature will make your life a lot easier when offering unique customization options to your customers. Please let us know what you think, and of course feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. 

Happy manufacturing,
Katana Team
