Control Manufacturing Costs with Odoo ERP

Manufacturing with USA Odoo

Odoo Manufacturing is flexible and configurable to meet Basic Distribution, Process Manufacturing or Discrete Manufacturing. With proper configuration, you can control the standard inventory definition, simple KIT Bill of Materials, direct manufacturing orders or complex shop floor control. These options allow you to capture material, consumable, manufacturing, and labor costs.

There are four applications that work together to inform you with answers to:

  1. What do you need?
  2. When do you need it?
  3. When do you need to build it?
  4. When do you need to ship to your customer?

Inventory, purchasing, sales, and manufacturing are the four applications at the root of Material Requirements Planning.

Odoo Solutions

Financial Accounting with USA Odoo offers best-of-class Odoo solutions. USA Odoo allows a complete ERP configuration that encompasses MRPII and MRPI functionality:


The Inventory Control provides total management of raw materials, sub-assemblies and finished goods across all warehouse locations. Both manufacturers and distributors can benefit from the comprehensive features which accommodate even the most challenging environments.


With proper configuration and accurate Bill of Materials, you can automate your purchases based on Just in Time rules.

New product development allows you to easily manage vendor bids on new items.

Tracking vendor performance and costs make it simple to negotiate best price with date effective control.


Sales allows you to track, leads quotes and orders. Once an order is confirmed, the Material Requirements engine kicks off and generate Purchase procurement and Manufacturing orders. With configuration options you can choose to Build to Stock or Build to Order.


At the core of MRP is the Bill of Materials. USA Odoo offers a very flexible BOM for almost any manufacturing environment.

You can configure your manufacturing operations with basic manufacturing orders to give you detailed material, consumable and labor costing. With basic configuration you can simple back flush your production at the end of the day, or use the MRP power to plan your daily and weekly schedules.

For better control, you can turn on BOM Routings and Work-centers. Routings map a sequence of operations required to build a product. These routes will process through a work-center where you can capture machine time, employee time, and overhead costs. You can determine at which work-center you want to consume your raw materials or sub-assemblies.

With these tools you can measure true capacities, validate material, labor and overhead variances.
