Check out this documentation page on inheritence.  There are various ways to inherit an object, depending on how do you want to "use" the field in the other class from the new class, that is provided by OpenERP.

Inheritence is not really necessary if you don't want to re-use the same methods, etc.  You can just re-define the fields.

Use name  not equal to inheritance

from openerp import models,fields,api,_
class Inheritance0(models.Model):
    _name = 'inheritance.0'

    name = fields.Char()

class Inheritance1(models.Model):
    _name = 'inheritance.1'
    _inherit = 'inheritance.0'
