Allows you to use Manufacturing Request as a previous step to Manufacturing Orders for better manufacture planification.

Project description

Mature License: AGPL-3 OCA/manufacture Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module extends the functionality of Manufacturing to allow you to use Manufacturing Request (MR) as a previous step to Manufacturing Orders (MO).

Some of the benefits you can obtain are:

  • Allow managers to review what is going to be manufactured.

  • Better control of manufacturing calendar.

  • Manage big requirements splitting them in batches.

  • Know your bottleneck component in advance and only schedule what you really can build.

Table of contents


To configure a product to automatically generate Manufacturing Requests from procurements instead of directly create manufacturing orders you need to:

  1. Go to the products that you want them to trigger manufacturing requests.

  2. Go to the Inventory tab.

  3. Check the box of a manufacture route and the box of Manufacturing Request.


To use this module, you need to:

  1. Go to Manufacturing > Manufacturing Requests.

  2. Create a manufacturing request or open a existing one (assigned to you or created from a procurement).

  3. If you click on Request approval button the user assigned as approver will be added to the thread.

  4. If you are the approver you can either click on Approve or Reject buttons.

  5. Rejecting a MR will cancel it and propagate this cancellation to destination moves.

  6. Approving a MR will allow you to create manufacturing orders.

  7. You can manually set to done a request by clicking in the button Done.

To create MOs from MRs you have to:

  1. Go to approved manufacturing request.

  2. Click on the button Create Manufacturing Order.

  3. In the opened wizard, click on Compute lines so you will have a quantity proposed for creating a MO. This quantity is the maximum quantity you can produce with the current stock available for the components needed in the source location.

  4. Use the proposed quantity or change it and click on Create MO at the bottom of the wizard.

NOTE: This module does not restrict the quantity that can be converted from a MR to MOs. It is in hands of the user to decide when a MR is ended and to set it to Done state.
