Unbuilding Manufactured Products

A product can be disassembled by removing its parts. In rare circumstances, a manufacturing business may need to unbuild a product. Purchasing things might also result in it happening. Keeping track of such unbuilt orders is crucial in these circumstances. As we just covered, an unbuilt order for a previously created product may be created using the Odoo 16  Manufacturing platform.

Go to the “Unbuild Orders” option from the  “Operations” menu to do this. You will receive a distinct platform to handle Unbuild Orders independently and create Unbuild Orders for acquired goods.


In the “Unbilled Orders” window, you can see the dashboard of all the order References, Products, Bills of Material, Manufacturing Order, Lot/Serial Number, Quantity, Unit of Measure, etc., as shown in the above screenshot. You can open the new configuration form by clicking on the “NEW” button.


The newly opened Configuration form window can be used to configure new Unbilled Orders. You can enter the Unbilled Order Name in the blank field inside the form. Then, provide the name of the “Product,” “Bill of Materials,” and “Quantity,” as seen in the above image. If the product is made in your business, you can include the “Manufacturing Order” in the relevant field. The “Source Location” field allows you to specify where the product is at the moment. You may provide the destination location in the “Destination Location” field for where you wish to keep the product's parts after the Unbuilding process is finished. You can fill in the appropriate boxes with the Lot/Serial Number and the Company. When you are done with the unbuild process, click the “UNBUILD” button.


Your unbuilt order will be stored in the Odoo database, and a "Products" smart button will appear in the configuration form so you can access the details of every component used in the unbuilt product as a dashboard, as shown below.


This “Stock Moves'' dashboard will provide the details of the component’s unbuilding date, Reference, Product, Lot/ Serial Number, Quantity, Unit, etc. The newly created Unbuild Order can also be managed from the “Unbuil Orders” dashboard.


These are the features available in the Odoo 16 Manufacturing Module to manage Unbuilt orders and scrap orders. Large manufacturing businesses can quickly deconstruct their defective goods, organize them out, and then place them back in the raw material categories with every record.
