Odoo Manufacturing enables the end users to create the manufacturing order of a product and pass them in different stages in a production line and complete production. With Odoo Manufacturing app one can also customize manufacturing procedures matching your company’s process using Work-center and other routing concepts.
One can create a product by Manufacturing Order in two ways.
1) Creating a manufacturing order (Simple Method without Routing & Work Center).
Path: Manufacturing → Operations → Manufacturing Order.
Click on the “Create” button.
Product: Select product to manufacture in odoo manufacturing.
Quantity To Produce: Add the total quantity to produce.
Bill Of Material: Add bill of material.
DeadLine: Add deadline for production of the order.
Plan From: Add Planned date for production of the order.
Components: Raw Material for production of the product. This Comes from the Bill of Material.
After adding all the details Click on ‘Mark as Todo’ button for processing the order.
Click on the “Check Availability” button. Quantity available will be updated in Reserve.
Once all quantities are available Click on the “Produce” button.
Once you are done with the process for the production click on the “Mark as Done” button.
Production is complete in odoo manufacturing.
2) Creating Manufacturing order by customizing the work order, setting up Work Center & Routing.
This is the advanced method for complex production where Work Center, Routing, Bill Of Materials are used.
Path: Manufacturing → Configuration → Settings.
After enabling work orders, we need to set the Work Centers and Routings.
- Work Center.
Just as the word describes, it’s the place where the production work is taking place.
For Creating Workcenter we can click on Workcenters in the settings or
Path: Manufacturing → Master Data → Work Center → Create.
Create work centers and click on “Save” button.
Routes are the paths through which the production of each product goes. Production is not a simple process, it contains a lot of work centers, routes and so on. Here we can set the routes for manufacturing.
For Creating Routings we can click on Routings in the settings or
Path: Manufacturing → Master data → Routings → Create.
Fill all the details, add the work centers for this route and click on “Save” button.
We can start processing work orders in 3 ways.
1) By clicking on the work order from the odoo manufacturing order.
2) Clicking on Any of the work orders.
Path: Manufacturing → Operation → Work Orders.
3) You can open any of the ongoing work orders from the work center Overview.
Path: Manufacturing → Overview → Click on the Work Orders button.
You can see all the work orders.
One can get hold of each work order and complete the production. The production of the product will go through the route that we set for its production.
Here we shall click “validate” after completing each stage.
When the entire production is finished we shall click “Mark as done” or “ Mark as done and close MO”. Then the production is completed.
When we complete each production the product will be added to the inventory. The inventory will be updated automatically. All this is possible in few clicks in odoo manufacturing app.
Bill Of Material
Bill of materials, BOM are the components we add for the production of a particular product. Every product is manufactured with unique raw material.
Therefore, for the manufacturing of a product, we need to take the corresponding bill of materials.
Path: Manufacturing → Master Data → Bill Of Material → Create.
Here we shall see how to create a BOM and how to add the components. BOM is very well explained and easy to process in odoo manufacturing. Odoo Bom is covered in one of the odoo apps.
Product: Add product for which you need to create a Bill Of Materials.
Product Variants: Add variants if needed.
Quantity: Add quantity.
Routing: Select Route of production for the product.
Reference: Add Reference.
BOM TYPE: Select the type of the BOM as per required for production of the product either ‘Manufacture this product’ or ‘Kit’.
You can add the raw materials required for the product in Component under Components tab.
Select the work center operations for the raw material in Consumed in Operations.
If there are By-products in your manufacturing order then you need to enable it in Manufacturing Settings.
Once By-Products are enabled you can see a By-products tab next to Component.
Add the products, quantity & select the operations. under By-Product if there are any for the production of the product.
After adding all the details click on the “Save” button. It will save your details in odoo manufacturing.
Unbuild is yet another innovative feature in Odoo 13 manufacturing. Here we can unbuild a manufactured product in case of damage caused to any of its parts so that we need not scrap the full product. We can unbuild the product and take the good parts from it.
Path: Odoo Manufacturing → Operation → Unbuild Orders → Create.
Fill the necessary fields and click the “Unbuild” button.
At any stage of the production line, we can scrap the product. In all the production stages we can find the tab of scrap. When we click on the scrap we can immediately transfer it to scrap.
We can also create scrap manually from,
Product: Select product which is scrapped.
Quantity: Add quantity.
Source Location: Add location from where the product was scrapped.
Scrap Location: Select the scrapped location.
Once all the details are filled you can click on the “Validate” button.
