For 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. 

The 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.


features in Odoo Manufacturing


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 parts. 

4. Quality:  Odoo 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 satisfaction. 


5. Maintenance:  A 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 failure.


6. WorkCentre Control Panel

Tablets: Set tablets at every work center to organize their work efficiently.

Record production: Register productions, scan products, lots or serial numbers.

Worksheets: Display worksheets directly on the WorkCentre with instructions for an operator.

Misc. Operations: Scrap products, create quality alerts, and perform checks, right from the WorkCentre.

Alerts: Use 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.
