Manufacturing Order Management

Under Odoo manufacturing module, one can produce a product in two ways. Firstly, one can create a manufacturing order following simple default stages and complete the production. Secondly, one can create a product via customizing the work order by setting up work center and routing mechanisms.

MANAGE MANUFACTURING IN SINGLE STEP/ WITHOUT ROUTINGS

On can go for simple step i.e. manufacturing orders without routings in case your manufacturing process is limited to one place, one person and one step.

By default, Odoo carries the manufacturing process without any routing.

Create a manufacturing order

To create a manufacturing order, go to Manufacturing> Operations> Manufacturing Order

Upon clicking CREATE button, you can create new manufacturing order.

  • Choose a product from list (or you may create new one).
  • Choose Quantity to produce.
  • Choose Bill of Material either from the list or create a new one.
  • One can define the deadline for completing the production.
  • Planned Date-Date at which you plan to start the production.
  • You can add the Responsible for this manufacturing order.
  • Source: Reference of the document that generated this production order request.

Click MARK AS TODO after entering all details.

  • Components Tab show you the product, unit of measure, tracking, products to consume, reserved product, and consumed product.
  • Finished product tab will show you the number of finished products.
  • Miscellaneous Tab gets you with the operation type, Components Location and Finished Product Location.

Click “Check availability” to see the availability of raw materials in inventory. If the red turned black, it denotes that the system holds sufficient stock in the inventory so as to start the production of the product.

Since Odoo offers negative inventory support, one can start production even without ensuring the raw material availability. Click “Produce” to start production.

You will be navigated to a new wizard like below:

Click SAVE.

And once you start the production, the status bar will change as follows

Click “Mark as Done” to complete the production process.

Now you can see the status bar changes to To Done from To close.

Here one gets the provision to avail the Traceability Report, from here.

MANAGE MANUFACTURING WITH ROUTINGS AND WORK CENTERS

Comparing to simple method, manufacturing with routing and work center is an advanced method of carrying the manufacturing process. The advanced method, facilitates to configure more detailed manufacturing process such as setting up Work Centers, Routing, Work Order management etc.

To enable this feature, Go to Manufacturing ->Configuration -> Settings and activate Work Orders feature under Operations Menu.

Click SAVE to mark the changes.

Now create a new manufacturing order via following the configuration

Manufacturing > Operations > Manufacturing Order > Create

Fill the fields same as before.

  • Choose a product from list (or you may create new one).
  • Choose Quantity to produce.
  • Choose Bill of Material
  • Now, add routings to BoMs and configure your operations taking place at different work centers. The Work Centers are the locations at which work orders are performed. ‘Routing’ mechanism, is automatically filled once you choose the BoM.
  • One can define the deadline for completing the production.
  • You can add the Responsible for this manufacturing order.
  • Components Tab displays the product tracking, products to consume, reserved product, and consumed product.
  • Finished product tab displays the number of finished products.
  • Miscellaneous tab will show you the operation type, the location where the system stocks the raw material and the location where the system will stock the finished products.

Click MARK AS TODO after entering all details.

Click “Check availability” to see the availability of raw materials in inventory. If the red turns out to be black, it simply denotes the inventory stocks sufficient amount of components to carry the production.

MANAGE PRODUCTION

Once you have created and confirmed a Manufacturing order, you can start production. Odoo will list all the Manufacturing orders under Manufacturing > Operations > Manufacturing Orders. You can view the status of all ongoing manufacturing orders from this place.

Select a Manufacturing Order from the list.

To start the work order, click on the play button on top right corner.

You will be navigated to a new window listing the work order.

Upon clicking the Work Order,

Under the Work Instructions tab, you can see the instruction to be carried out in the production process.

One gets to see the work instructions, that has to be referred before going to the production.

Under Current Production Tab, one gets to see the quantity in production, component details.

Uder Time tracking Tab, one can see the planned date, effective date, expected duration,and real time duration.

If you click PROCESS, the work order will start.

From here, one can PAUSE the production, SKIP the production, Take a picture of the current state of production and also many other options via using dropdown menu set on the left side.

Utilizing dropdown menu, One can BLOCK, SCRAP,ask for MAINTENANCE REQUEST and trigger QUALITY ALERT on specific components of the work order.

Upon clicking the BLOCK button, you will be navigated to a new wizard, where you will be asked to specify the lost reason for blocking the work center from carrying the work order. One can also add additional descriptions if any.

If case, you want to mark the products as SCRAP, click on scrap button and you will be navigated to new window:

Here you can specify the product, quantity, lot, package, owner, work order, manufacturing order, location and more.

Upon clicking MAINTENANCE REQUEST button, you will be navigated to new window requesting the type of maintenance: Preventive or Corrective maintenance. Here, one can specify several other details like manufacturer, equipment, manufacturing order and so forth.

Upon clicking QUALITY ALERTS, you will be navigated to new window like below.

Here one can specify the desired details and set quality alerts on components of the work order.

PLANNING WORK ORDERS

At times, organizations need to plan their work orders. Doing as such, they can arrange the work for the entire day and be certain everything goes well. It also abstains from planning numerous work orders simultaneously, especially when you don't have the ability to do it.

With Odoo, organizations can schedule the beginning date for their manufacturing orders. What's more, in the event that you plan two work orders at a similar work center, at that hour, the subsequent one will be scheduled just after the first, keeping away from work superposition.

Configuration:

Manufacturing ->Configuration -> Settings and activate Work Orders feature under Operations Menu.

Click SAVE to mark the changes.

Now, go to Manufacturing> Operations> Manufacturing Orders. Create new order with Planned Start Date.

Mark your Manufacturing Order as to do and plan it. Via clicking Planning menu, you can access to the scheduled orders.
