To place a Menu under Other Module menus you need to include the Parent module in your __openerp__.py file and give the parent menu id in your menu item. Let me explain you with an Example. Consider a model called Test. To make that Module visible under Human Resources module do the following steps:
Step-1: in __openerp__.py add the following line "depends" : ["hr"],
Step-2: then in your view xml file add the following lines Line-1: <menuitem id="menu_test" parent="hr.menu_hr_root" name="Test Module Parent"/> Line-2: <menuitem id="menu_test_child" parent="menu_test" name="My Menu" action="action_test"/>
Here **parent="hr.menu_hr_root"** denotes the parent id under which you are going to place your menu. i.e., hr.menu_hr_root is the id of the Human Resource menu. And **name="Test Module Parent"** denotes your Test menu's parent name and it can be anything. The Line-2 denotes your clickable menu. Here the **action="action_test"** denotes the action to be carried out when you click on My Menu.
You can create menuitem like this:
<menuitem id="menu_product" name="Products" parent="base.menu_base_partner" sequence="9"/>
In other module, you need to use module name where the first its been created before menu id like this:
<menuitem id="product.menu_product" name="Products" parent="base.menu_base_partner" sequence="9"/>
Here, I used product before taking it's reference, it means its created in product module and i want to use it in another module so you have to user module_name.MENU_ID.
