Hope everyone is well
I'm a newbie from South Africa needing help
I didn't know which section to post so I hope I'm doing the right thing by posting here.
I recently starting manufacturing marshmallows for resale. It's not a big operation but I produce about 200kg a day. What I really need help with is that I have no manufacturing background and I would like to know of ways of keeping records of production and inventory of raw materials including yield and whatever else goes with it.
Since I am a bit tight on finance as this is something new I jus started. If someone can please provide me with ways of keeping these records without any expensive software. Manually or excel would do the trick I'm sure. My process of manufacture is
1. Cooking sugar water and glucose
2. Beating in planetary mixer
3. Either piping in starch molds or rolling and cutting on a table.
4. After drying its packing
Also how would costing be done as the product is one(marshmallow) but making them differently. The one on the table is rolled in coconut. Some days both table and starch are made. How would costing be done for this.
Really hope someone can help
