If I want to maintain stock of products that are halfway manufactured, can I do that?

Suppose I have a product that can have several operations applied to it.

The order of these operations doesn't matter: I can do A, B, C or C, A, B.

If I encode these as work orders in a routing, how can I specify that some of these tasks can be done in parallel?

How exactly does routing work? What /is/ a work center exactly? A worker, or a location, or a machine?

If your product is composed by finished parts you can stock, you can define those finished parts as BoM levels.

This way OpenERP will procure those parts first. If you set a routing for the production of these second level items, you'll get a situation where OpenERP produces and stock the components of your finished product. Then you can run the MO for the finished product whenever you want.

You can also create a BoM level called "My not-totally-finished product" if this is more similar to your situation.

So, essentially, "no". In other words, I need middle level products and MOs to track stock, or if I don't need stock tracked I can use routing?
