You can build your own custom module for this requirement . You can proceed in these ways: You should first inherit mrp.bom and add a new field 'price_unit': fields.float('Unit Price') and redefine the onchange_product_id function define compute_price and compute_total function to calculate "line price" and "total price" Then you have to inherit mrp.production and define compute_production_cost function to update cost_price from BOM. We have created this custom module and it works perfect , in my module it takes avg purcahse price in BOM and we added an extra tab to manufactring form to compute Production Cost , in that tab you can add extra charges like electicity etc.. , that charges also added to cost by calculating per_unit charge depending on UOM. for any help you can contact: baijuks@hotmail.com

For which version of OpenERP?

Have you seen https://www.openerp.com/apps/6.1/production_costs/ ?

Production Costs Management Module. Includes:

  • Extension of production order to calculate manpower, material and fixed costs.
  • Extension of products for adding these three prior fields and updating its cost price (only if its 'cost_method' field is set to 'average').

  • A new wizard for repercuting structural costs over products.

  • Obtains prices of final production product. Prices in moves. Unit price in production lot, taking into account the cost of manpower.

@Ray Carnes I saw the community module  https://www.openerp.com/apps/trunk/product_cost_incl_bom/ but I beleive the problem there is that you are creating another field for the cost inc. BOM. You can see the cost of produced product, but you cant use it. For exmaple if user sells the produced product, the cost of the product won't be written off in journal entries. Because it writes off only from cost field. I mean when you use Anglo Saxon Axxounting.

Select Supply method as Manufacture, then you can view BOM cost field at Procurement page/tab of Product window

I am having the same problem and I am not able to find a solution for Oddo 8. I did update the cost manually but when the stock moves are created there is no cost invloved.

Anybody has any solution for this?
