The new world is characterized by intelligent systems that communicate via the Internet, machines that can perform more duties, and tools that reveal potential opportunities you might otherwise have missed. If your manufacturing process doesn’t empower you with holistic control over the production and take advantage of smart technology innovations, it’s time to consider a change.

Manufacturing companies around the world are investing in solutions that offer either made-to-order functionalities for their production units or an easy-to-integrate upgrade to their existing system. Many leading software product and service providers however, offer the best of both worlds with applications that can be customized and also integrated with most manufacturing systems.

It’s Time For Odoo Manufacturing Management Software

  • With this system, you can manage the work in progress and semi-finished items easily, as well as track inventory and costs related to operations individually or collectively.
  • An overview of the capacity and projections from a bird’s eye view through MPS and forecasting
  • MPS-based production planning throughout the flow will reduce floor-level decision making.
  • Control inventory levels within the system using MTS, MTO, or Assemble-to-Order processes

Auto procurement for production is managed through Material Resource Planning, which can also be set with minimum quantities.

Master Production Schedule is one of its advanced features for Advanced Planning and Scheduling. It is possible to schedule resources well in advance against an order or against a make-to-stock order. In addition, it comes with a neat Gantt chart that shows the load on resources and the progress of the project.
