When I click produce on a manufacturing order it automatically reduces materials and increases inventory. However, manufacturing is not instantaneous, and I see no mechanism for accounting for the intermediate step.
A set of configurations is required to have real-time inventory values recorded, which include the movement of value from raw materials, through WIP, to finished goods. I created a video and shared slides that give an overview of this process.
OpenERP has a very simple mfg module, that it is not suitable for real manufacturing without "massive" tailoring. It seems that this lack of real mfg module is the most weak point of OE. There are several different "proprietary" OE mfg modules available, but only for "closed" usage. It seems that there is not yet strong open source community for OE and that may be reason for that people are not sharing best practice solutions with each other.
