How do I to update the quantity for finished goods?

Gerald Ngui

Upon completion of a manufacturing process, the quantities of finished goods completed are more than what was planned for in the manufacturing order.

The manufacturing order does not allow me to change the quantity of the finished goods once I have started the production process. Also could not put the quantities earlier because the exact quantities produced are not known until the completion.

Seeking advice on what is the right way to update the right quantity of finished goods into OpenERP.

Could someone help advise? Thanks in advance.

Gerald, I'm in the exact same situation. Have you figured out a work around or best practice for this situation? Your help would be greatly appreciated. I installed the code below of Ray Carnes, but that function executes before Raw materials are even selected for production. Please help if you can!

I replaced the original code with your code, I get an error:

thx for help

sorry this message for Ray Carnes

Hi, has anybody resolved this issue, I have the same situation the finished goods are not the same with the planned(ordered) quantities on Production Order, we have a change of +1% ore -1% on produced quantities versus confirmed. Is there any solution, workaround or any advice how to do this producing more or les than the confirmed quantinty? Where to place the code gived by Ray Carnes? is this code a module? Please could someone help me? Regards

The following code overrides mrp_production.action_compute(). Pass the raw_product_id and raw_qty via the context.

        if not bom_id:

        if context.get('raw_product_id'):

Thanks Ray! I shall try this out.

really? you have to add/change code in order to update actual produced quantities? I guess in 99.95% of any production process the actual quantities do not match what was planned. That is just a reality of production. I think it is very surprising that an ERP application would have no GUI solution for such an everyday scenario. Actually it is hard to believe that.

sorry I am not technical at all. I think what you have posted is code that you suggest to add to a module right? If I am not on a wrong track here this adds functionality (which I feel is badly needed) to this. So why wouldn't that be added officially to the modules code (then it would be better, right)? Maybe I don't understand the way how Odoo is being developed. Would anyone mind to explain?

Where to place this code? Is a module?

I tried this code. This code executes after hitting the button "Confirm Production". After this gets executed, the materials to be used in production are populated. SO this code does not solve the issue from the OP. The problem is not with the Raw materials, the problem is that for a given number of raw materials, we have an output that varies. We can't be exected to make a new bill of materials every time a production process is run. We need the ability to alter the produced quantities of production. Has anyone solved this problem?
