Taken my pension, but still got a lot of energy. 

Worked as General manager, Logistic manager and SAP functional consultant (In Nexans). 

I always used ERP systems as a tool to better control our business.  And specially in Logistic operations.  

Currently helping an earlier colleague to set up Odoo for a new manufacturing business. Interesting...

From working with SAP, I fully understand what you are asking. Cost Center accounting is not supported in Odoo as standard. 

On work enter you have only one cost facot by the hour. You might include fix cost in that figure. In SAP this is split on different cost elements. (Electricity, workers etc). 

For projects Odoo give you Analytic account. I think quite ok for projects. But the reports might need some Customizing.
