a Manufacturing company which handles many manufacturing products have to track
every manufacturing orders efficiently. With an effective and robust ERP, one
can easily manage the manufacturing processes without any strain. Odoo
encompasses several features to effectively and efficiently manage a
manufacturing industry. The odoo manufacturing module helps the end
user to handle the complexity of Production, Manage Bills of Materials, Plan
Manufacturing Orders, and Track Work Orders etc.
working methodology is very simple in Odoo manufacturing. 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 one can also customize manufacturing procedure matching your
company’s process using WorkCentre and other routing concepts. You can easily
manage ‘Scraps’ during any stage of the manufacturing procedure and ‘Unbuild’ a
manufactured product if needed. An organization may assign different level
users to overlook the entire manufacturing procedure for effective management
of the entire process.

1. Manage:With Odoo Manufacturing implementation, it helps
the manufacturers to access the business information in one click. It helps the
top management officials to manage and monitor all key business information
real-time and transform them into business growth.
2. Schedule & plan:It
provides improved control over components inventory, more accurate
demand-planning, streamlined production scheduling, and more effective
coordination of distribution channels, which enable companies to improve
on-time delivery of products, a critical performance metric for manufacturers.
Especially if they’re involved in mass production, manufacturers will have a
large amount of inventory coming in and going into production. Manufacturers
will be able to track all of this inventory, along with their characteristics,
numbers, locations, etc.
3. Define Flexible Master Data:Before
manufacturing takes place, routing needs to be properly defined. Routing is
basically the methods to create the product using the materials outlined in the
BOM. This may involve multiple stages and multiple work centers (the groups of
individuals/locations where production activity takes place). Odoo
manufacturing does the following:
Create multi-level Bills of Materials: Set
a Bill of Materials within another in order to manufacture components of a
product in another Bill of Materials.
Optional routing: Create
new routines for work orders in order to sequence your production depending on
the routing used.
Version changes: Allow
your products to evolve and add configurable options when creating orders.
Phantom of Bill of Materials: Create
phantom BoM to manufacture and sell products in kits or to build replacement
manufacturing inspects quality checks for purchased materials before
production, in the middle of manufacturing stages, or as final inspections. On
account of any problems, the quality check systems in manufacturing ERP helps
narrow down the issue, thereby improving the product quality and customer
manufacturing ERP can also allow maintenance orders to take place for repairs
and other fixes. Such orders will organize requests and be assigned to the
maintenance team. With ERP systems such as Odoo, these systems can also
automate preventive maintenance (regularly scheduled maintenance on items so that
they’re less likely to fail) by computing statistics such as average time to

Misc. Operations: Scrap

alerts to show changes or quality checks to the operator.
7. Business Intelligence:Odoo
Manufacturing also gets a detailed analysis report on your production line, analyze
the performance of your work centers and production, plan alternative
production strategies etc. are some of the qualitative measures Odoo BI engine
can suggest to you in manufacturing module.
