Complete Step by Step guide to Odoo 13 Manufacturing
Odoo 13 Manufacturing module manages all manufacturing related activities. Manufacturing in Odoo is more helpful for the production of a manufactured product or the product is built by some other products with different quantities. Odoo an Open source ERP solution helps you to implement and customize Manufacturing ERP software for your business.
Odoo Manufacturing Module manages production by work order or either by manufacturing order. Master Production Schedule(MPS) is available which enables to schedule the production of stock. Odoo Manufacturing enables to set of product variants and By-products in the bills of material. It manages quality control points, checks, measures.
First of all, you can install the Manufacturing Module in your database.
Odoo Manufacturing Orders are divided into one or more steps described by Work Orders and presented in a sequence determined by routings.
To Create a Manufacturing Order
Now you can create a manufacturing order Go to Manufacturing -> Operations -> Manufacturing Orders -> and click on the Create button.
Now you can fill all the required fields like Product name, quantity to produce, bill of material, deadline, planned date, responsible, source, company, components tab, etc.
After filling all the required fields now you can start production through clicking on the “Mark as to do” button.
After becoming done the production at that time, click on the “Mark as done” button.
To Manage Manufacturing with Work Centers and Routings:
Configuration of Work Center:
In the Manufacturing module, you can tick the checkbox of Work Order in the manufacturing module.
Go to Manufacturing -> Settings -> and tick the checkbox of Work Order then click on the Save button.
Now you can create new Work Centers and Routings in your manufacturing module.
Go to Manufacturing –> Master Data -> Work centers.
You can create a new work center and fill the required fields like Work Center Name, Alternative Workcenters, Code, Working Hours, Company. Now you can fill the following fields under the General Information Tab. You can add performance indices like time efficiency factor, capacity, OEE target, cost per hour, etc. from General Information Tab.
Configuration of Routing:
In the manufacturing module, routings can be used to specify the manufacturing operations to be done in work centers to develop a certain product. Every product has its own routes. It is not a single step process the manufacturing process may consist of many work centers and any work centers have its own processes and process time. At that time you can set the route of the specific manufacturing process.
Routing completely depends on the manufacturing company process. A few companies have the same type of manufacturing process. Then you can create only one type of routing. A few companies have a distinct manufacturing process Then you can create multiple routing.
Go to Manufacturing -> Master data -> Routing
Now you can click on the routings button to create new routing in your database.
At that time you can fill the following field like name of the routing, company name production location and add work operation there. Whenever you want to add work operation then click on add a line button.
Now you can fill the following fields like operation name, work center, and duration computation. There are two options available in duration computation: compute based on real-time and set duration manually and also an option for setting default duration. Then fill the next operation field and click on the Save button.
Configuration of Bill of Material (BoM)
Bills of Materials (BOM) are documents that describe the list of raw materials used to make a finished product. A Bill of Material is sometimes also referred to as a product structure, assembly component list or production recipe.
Once you have created a product and at least one component select them from the relevant dropdown menus to add them to your bill of materials (BoM).
Go to Manufacturing > Master Data > Bill of Materials > Create
Now we are creating the new Bills of Material (BoM). The product name and its quantity are essential fields. Add product quantity and each raw material and its in the ‘Components’ tab by clicking ‘Add an Item’. Later you added all the components, click on the Save button.
Now you can set the name of the Routing properly. Routings define the manufacturing operations to be done in work centers to produce a certain product. Routing is usually attached to bills of materials, which will define the assembly of products required for manufacturing or to produce finished products
Now you can create a new manufacturing order for the products. Enter the information on the following required fields like product name, quality to produce, BoM, routing, Deadline, Plan from, Responsible, Source, Company, etc. At that time, you can be configured three types of work center operations.
Go to Manufacturing -> Operations -> Manufacturing orders.
After clicking on the Plan button the stage of the Manufacturing Order is to be changed. Now Manufacturing Order is going to the Planned stage. Now clicking on the Work Order button to view the various type of orders.
Now Lets’ see the various work orders view like Packing, Testing, Long time assembly.
Now your first work order will be in a ready state and others work order in a pending state and waiting for another Work Order. At the same time, the first order is completed, now the second work order and third work order stage will automatically get changed to Ready state and process.
To Create Scrap:
Scrap is the discarded material from a manufacturing job and products are unusable or at the same time, it reaches its expiry date. In Odoo you’ll manage a defected or scrap product from any point of business like whereas receiving a decent, or throughout the internal transfer, etc.
Scrap management and Unbuild order facilities are two simple yet highly useful features of Odoo manufacturing ERP.
Scrap management in Odoo: One of the most useful features of Odoo is that you can create Scrap at any stage of the production line. Now Click on the scrap button to create instant scrap entry in inventory. You can create a fresh scrap entry. At that time you can fill the following details and click on the Done button it will be inserted into inventory automatically.
To configure unbuild a product:
Another useful feature in Manufacturing is Unbuild. You can unbuild the products into its bill of materials. It is the reverse process of production.
Go to Manufacturing > Operations > Unbuild Orders > and click on Create button.
While creating a new one, you can either select a Manufacturing Order. Now you can fill the following fields: product, Bill of Material, Quantity, Manufacturing Order, Location, Destination Location, etc.
Master Production Schedule:
MPS or Master Production Schedule is automate the scheduling process with the help of existing Minimum Stock Rules and Make-to-Order. The Master Production Schedule is also managed the Manufacturing Order to automate scheduling, along with existing Minimum Stock Rules and Make-to-Order newly added MPS (Master Production Schedule) will trigger manufacturing order (it could also be used for Purchase as well) based on customer demand. The Master Production Schedule module is designed to help the manufacturer order.
In Odoo manufacturing process is managed in the Manufacturing module, so first of all, we have to install that module in our DB, after installing another routing option (manufacture) is added in the product form.
You can plan manufacturing or purchase orders based on forecasts with the time rage of monthly, Weekly or Daily as we demand.
Looking at Demand Forecast one will come to know how much production is needed (Go to Manufacturing and under Reporting, you will find MPS).
Planning by Work centers:
Planning by Production:
Product Life Cycle Management (PLM):
Barcodes and work centers:
Quality Check Points, Checks and Measures:
Quality alerts in Odoo’s clean kanban interface. Drag and drop alert to report progress and use visual indicators to focus on critical alerts. Use tags to categorize quality alerts and create rules to automate alerts or actions. Categorize by addressee by the requestor.
Quality Checks: Quality checks in Odoo facilitates for easy checking and statistical process control. This feature enables an entire quality check process for a warehouse.
Quality alert on Work orders
Preventive and Corrective maintenance management:
Odoo computes standard statistics to help you plan preventive maintenance, including mean time between failure (MTBF), mean time to repair (MTTR), and expected next failure date and lets you automate metrology and preventive maintenance scheduling. In Odoo Corrective maintenance is carried out after the detection of failures. The corrective maintenance missionizes to restore the asset or equipment which performs the same intended job function.
