The process of maintaining a business's assets and resources while keeping costs and time under control ensures that the manufacturing process runs as efficiently as possible. Well-maintained assets and resources keep your production steady and significantly lower the possibility of unplanned downtime. Unplanned downtime has a cascading effect, increasing unforeseen costs related to things like repairs (overtime labor, spare parts, etc.), delayed shipments, lost revenue, or complete machine breakdowns. Odoo Maintenance is a modern software system for manufacturers. It is a complete maintenance management software system that offers end-to-end services for any type of manufacturing business, company, etc. The Odoo 16 Maintenance application, which is available in the community version, will be effectively explained in this book.

Maintenance Management in Odoo 16

Maintenance management contributes to revenue by lowering operating costs and raising the caliber (and output) of manufactured goods by enhancing the operational effectiveness of plant facilities. Other advantages include increased workplace safety, increased productivity, and reduced employee mistakes, in addition to cost savings.

Advantages of implementing a maintenance plan:

  • Improvements in safety by lowering the risk of accidents, fatalities, and consequent liability brought on by faulty or malfunctioning assets.
  • Keep away from expensive downtime occurrences that could disrupt production and cost the company money.
  • Broaden the lifespan of assets and raise their after-use resale value.
  • Reduce the cost of maintenance because repairs often cost much more than preventive maintenance.
  • The ratio of planned to unplanned maintenance is, in fact, a crucial indicator of maintenance effectiveness.
  • Maintain assets to meet schedule and financial commitments.
  • Reduce operating expenses and energy use.
  • Maintain warranty coverage by keeping thorough service logs that show compliance with advised maintenance guidelines.

Odoo provides a comprehensive maintenance management system that will take care of your manufacturing business.

You can install the free community version of the application from the Odoo ERP platform. After installing and opening the maintenance application, you will see the application homepage, as we can see from the below screenshot.

As you can see, the maintenance homepage is arranged in a Kanban view dashboard based on team-based maintenance requests such as Internal Maintenance, Metrology, and Subcontractor. So the corresponding team will check and solve the requests which have been added to their team tasks.

Internal Maintenance: In this maintenance management team, users can request new maintenance activities inside their organization.

Metrology: Metrology is a study of measurement. Metrology, in the context of contemporary manufacturing, refers to quality control techniques used to measure the finished products and calibrate the production machinery. In the metrology maintenance team, users can add metrology-based maintenance requests.

Subcontractor: In this team, subcontractor-based maintenance tasks are arranged. Users can also add their tasks and requests to this home page as per the corresponding maintenance category.

This type of task organization helps to effectively manage the maintenance task of manufacturing companies or firms. You can also create new maintenance teams in the platform, which can be discussed in the upcoming sections.
