I want to discuss about the version 7 not 8, ok.

Manufacturing and stock are two modules, each one has a manager and a user rules.

Now, a Manufacturing user will launch a production order that will consume a quantity of product X , this operation will pass a stock mouvement but the problem is that I want that the stock manager or stock user who have to confirm firstly then the manufacturing manager (user)

In other way I want to add a step between production confirmation and stock mouvement.

Example : M : Manufacturing user S : Stock user

M create order (MO)

M confirm the order

S have to confirm the stock mouvement

M finish the production

S receive the product in the stock

Thank you

There is a configuration option "Manage manual picking to fulfill manufacturing orders".

With this option, you will now see a new option on products:

When you UNCHECK this, a picking step will have to be completed first - adding the extra step you need.


Thank you, Following this method, I can control the manufacturing order, but I can consume the M1 without picking, An other problem is that when the order finish, the picking is done by MRP User not on Stock manager, I think about draft stock mouvement not force the picking! Thank you
