How to generate BOM with Raw materials and labour?

on 7/3/14, 6:16 AM 2,488 views

I am using Odoo v8. I am struggling create following scenario using BOM. Appreciate your help.

- To manufacture product A, It needs 45g of Raw material X and 0.15 minutes of machine time. How to define this labour in BOM?

- 1 kg of Raw material X is USD 3.00 and charge for a machine hour is USD 10. How to calculate the production cost?

- Is it possible to define Raw material waste in BOM or Manufacturing? Because this should automatically reduce the Raw material stocks

Maybe you could look into the work centers and costs? Define a route along the work centers (in your case only 1 with the machine) and  give it a product and cost.

Sampath if you want capture costs you need to define proper workcenter and define appropriate parameters at work center level and tag that to the finished product.otherwise if you want generate a task then the product will be defined as service and taged to the product .
