Welcome to the era of streamlined manufacturing, where Odoo 17‘s Shop Floor Work Center Pages are revolutionizing the industry. 

These pages are not just a feature; they’re a transformative force for manufacturing businesses.

Imagine a bustling manufacturing floor, where every process is a cog in a well-oiled machine. This is not just a vision but a reality with Odoo 17’s Shop Floor Work Center Pages. 

As a revolutionary companion to the Manufacturing app, it provides a visual interface that transforms how manufacturing orders (MOs) and work orders are processed. 

It’s a digital conductor orchestrating the symphony of manufacturing processes with precision and efficiency. 

In this blog, we will delve into how Odoo 17 is redefining shop floor management, spotlighting a use case to showcase its transformative impact.



Odoo 17’s Shop Floor module is ingeniously designed with three main views : the All page, Work Center pages and the My page. 

Each serves a unique purpose in streamlining operations​.


This is the command center, displaying MOs ready to start, complete with all necessary details and status updates. It’s where the journey of each manufacturing order begins​.


Dedicated to each work center, these pages show work orders assigned to them. It’s where the specifics of each work order come to life, detailing every step required for completion​.


Tailored to the active employee, it displays work orders specifically assigned to them, ensuring a personalized workflow management experience.


Let’s consider a furniture manufacturer, “WoodCrafters Inc.” 

They recently implemented Odoo 17’s Shop Floor Work Center Pages to enhance their production process.

Step 1 : Installation and Integration WoodCrafters integrates the Shop Floor module with their existing Manufacturing app, setting the stage for a more synchronized operation​.

​Step 2 : Customizing Work Center Pages Each work center is assigned specific tasks relevant to furniture manufacturing, such as cutting, assembling, and finishing.

Step 3 : Real-time Order Tracking The All page becomes the hub for tracking all manufacturing orders, providing WoodCrafters with real-time updates on the production status.

Step 4 : Streamlined Work Order Processing Work orders are managed more efficiently, with detailed steps and progress tracking on the Work Center pages.

Step 5 : Personalized Employee Management The My page allows individual employees to focus on their assigned tasks, improving accountability and efficiency.

Step 6 : Quality Control and Completion The final step includes quality checks and the closing of manufacturing orders, ensuring high standards are maintained.
