Disassemble a server

on 8/5/16, 5:18 AM 128 views

I have a use case which I have not come up with a solution in Odoo for it.

the product is server

it is made of different parts and each part has serial number



  SN: SRV0001 (is created during manufacturing process)

1xChassis, SN:


2xCPU, SN:



2x Memory, SN:



I can define BOM in the manufacturing process and build SRV0001

but when I use byproduct module to disassemble the server to the parts, I experience a major issue

for disassembling I have created BOM for Chassis and in byproduct entered other components wich would be created (and this is where I expected Odoo to come with a better solution)

the process of disassembling does not understand what serial numbers were previously used to build SRV0001. Also during the process, system asked for the lot(serial) number of the produced chassis and as soon as I enter that serial number 2 things happen

1- every byproduct component would get the same serial as the chassis

2-for components which are more than 1 in the byproduct, system stops working! as it cannot allocate the same serial for a particular product to 2 instances of that.

any comment on how to implement this use case is appreciated

Did you see this module and might it help? https://www.odoo.com/apps/modules/9.0/mrp_bom_dismantling/

seems to be good, but struggling to install this module.

I have an instance on d9tready, also tried to update modules list. but still nothing came up

I finally installed it (download, unzipped in the addon folder manually)

still struggling with one case

in my BOM, some parts get used more than 1

when I create a manufacturing order for disassembling, qtys are correct. but when I hit the "produce" I see only 1 row per item so I can enter 1 serial number and I keep receiving this error:

"You should only receive by the piece with the same serial number"
