Work Centers

Work Centers are the places or organization units where you can perform the manufacturing processes. In the process of manufacturing a specific product, we may need different types of equipment and workspaces at each stage of production. So, by assigning different Work Centers for each activity in the manufacturing process we can ensure quality at each step. In the Odoo Manufacturing module, you can create different Work Centers for different activities in the production of a product.

You can easily manage multiple activities in the manufacturing process by creating separate Work Centers. In order to get the Work Center window in the Odoo Manufacturing module, first, you need to activate the Work Orders option from the Settings menu of the module.
