Odoo's production app has already been thoroughly overhauled in previous versions. So in version 15 there are only a few new improvements.
New dashboard for production analytics
A new production dashboard has been added. This gives you direct insight into different units of measurement of your production process.
Only use variants with certain components by-product
It was already possible to use some components of a bill of materials only with a certain variant. This is now also adjustable for by-products and the operations of a bill of materials.
Analytic accounts have been added for manufacturing orders. Entries are made for:
raw material costs (change in consumption)
workshop costs (change with actual duration on work order)
Cost breakdown by-products
Support has been added for costing of by-products. The value of the by-product can now be calculated as a percentage of the total cost of production.
Mass Manufacturing Serial Number Registration
If you produce multiple products in one production order and the products all have a unique serial number, Odoo 15 has a new option to make that easier. When producing more than 1 piece, click on mass production and you can generate all serial numbers at once or paste a series in the pop-up.
Master Porduction Schedule(MPS)
On the MPS you can now also see the demand for a certain product in the previous year and the year before.
There are now two useful improvements for the employee who does quality checks on the production process:
Quality points per product category
Quality points can now also be set for an entire product category instead of for a group of individual products.
Work orders for quality checks
For a quality point you can now create work orders that the employees have to fill in when performing a quality check. The work order is completely free to draw up.
