Odoo has all the necessary features to effectively and efficiently manage a manufacturing industry. It helps the end user to handle the complexity of production, manage bills of materials, plan manufacturing orders and track work orders etc.
Odoo Manufacturing enables the end users to create the manufacturing order of a product and pass them in different stages in a production line throughout the complete production cycle. The user can also customize manufacturing procedure matching their company’s process using WorkCentre and other routing concepts.
Odoo manufacturing also enables a user to manage ‘Scraps’ during any stage of the manufacturing procedure and ‘Unbuild’ a manufactured product if needed. An organization may assign different level users to overlook the entire manufacturing procedure for effective management of the entire process.
