The Manufacturing industry is changing and the enterprise applications running on cloud are playing a big role in helping manufacturers respond to change. Decision-makers are seeing the value of planning, collaboration and transparency offered by Manufacturing ERP solutions like Odoo.
Odoo Manufacturing ERP can help plan directly based on real-time manufacturing measures. You can easily integrate MRP, Quality, Maintenance and PLM. You can automate your shop floor and capture real-time data from your equipment. Odoo Manufacturing ERP provides a transactional system of records for your manufacturing business. You can use dynamic reports on everything from costing to traceability, performance analysis, OEE, and to make smarter decisions about your business.
KEY QUESTIONS THAT MANUFACTURING MANAGERS ASK ARE:
Do I have the Materials?
When will I get the Materials?
How much does it cost to produce?
What are my margins?
What is my bottleneck?
How much can I produce?
How can I produce more profitably?
Introduction To Odoo Manufacturing
Odoo Orders & Scheduling
Odoo BOM (Bill Of Materials)
Plan your manufacturing orders: MRP allows you to plan your manufacturing orders automatically using the master production schedule, minimum stock or made to order rules.
Forecast demand: The master production schedule automatically creates manufacturing orders based on demand forecasts, stock on demand and indirect demand.
Schedule work orders: This allows you to prioritize manufacturing orders to schedule work in the future, review the schedule and adjust it manually if needed.
You can also check your work center capability with a single click.
STREAMLINE PRODUCT ASSEMBLY
Manage worksheets and production- Workers use tablets on shop floors to record production, check worksheets, track time and more. All the information they need is just a tap away. Work orders can be perfectly integrated with work sheet instructions. The workers tablet is also integrated with barcode scanners for lots and serial numbers and quality control such as photo and pass/fail tests.
Control work-centre - All measurements are fully integrated with tools and machines. Odoo’s IoT toolbox allows you to connect tools and machines to the work centre control panel to automate measurements and machine set up or work instructions. Any device can be connected such as printers or barcode scanners. That way work is optimized, and errors are reduced.
Schedule future orders- Work is also timed automatically. This measure time is used by Odoo to schedule future orders accurately. This native integration is what makes Odoo different from other MRP manufacturing systems. All data are synchronized together instantly.
It’s easy to add a process as from another department through the assemble line and track it.
CONDUCT QUALITY CHECKS AND REDUCE ERRORS
Foresee malfunctions - If something goes wrong like a machine malfunction or missing raw materials, the worker can flag the order as blocked. Then trigger a quality alert, maintenance request or record scarp units as needed. This will directly notify the right department about the issue. Once it’s resolved the other teams are notified by these alerts triggered during the assembly. This helps you track any errors and makes productions more efficient through better communication between all the teams in the global manufacturing process.
Record and report production - Once the job is finished the worker can record production with the press of a button or by scanning the barcode. When production is complete the traceability report shows you the serial number of each item used to manufacture the product.
Fast and easy quality checks - The quality department has a key role through the whole manufacturing process. They can review the quality alert and track the status of investigation. Dynamic reporting features helps spot trends and conduct root cause analysis. Also, quality control points can be defined to make sure each piece of the product reaches quality standard.
Investigate root causes - The Kanban view keeps the team organized and helps you track investigations. As your investigation progresses you can assign a root cause. For continuous improvement you can set up
