In MRP, how to have a list of procedures to follow, and track that they are followed?

I'd like to have detailed procedures (preferably with file attachments), that is a worker is to follow when creating a product.

I would also like to track who and when fulfilled the procedures.

Seems like this might be possible with Routings and People Work Centers, but how do I track who actually performed the work and when?

Is this possible in OpenERP?

Going to answer my own question...

install mrp_operations and document modules.

in settings > manufacturing > manufacturing order > planning, enable "Manage routings and work orders" and "Allow detailed planning of work order"

in settings > knowledge > enable "Manage documents"

Create a Work Center. You can attach files (such as a procedure video) to a Work Center

Create a Routing and add Work Center Operations. These are your procedures.

Add a Routing to a BOM

When you make a Manufacturing Work Order, it will use your BOM, its Routing, and its Work Center Operations. A user can view the procedure instructions via the Work Center. OpenERP will track who performed which Work Center Operation via mrp_production_workcenter_line.write_uid , assuming that worker is logged in.

Just need to show who the actual user name now.
