I need to track the profitability and costing of every project or job we enter. It is basically a profit and loss statement for each project. I did not find built in functionality so far. Can anyone advise what I can do?
Typically the report records the following:
Warehouse Material Issued
In openERP , we will use analytic accounting for this purpose , you can refer to many documentation to give you an idea of how to do it , but there is no fixed way of controlling such kind of process because every company has somehow different way to manage their costing.
one of the document that i found is useful is this link http://www.netcerto.eu/en/openerp-possibilities/analytic-accounting
I found this company called Pragmatic based out of India. pragtechblog.blogspot.sg
I am wondering if anyone here has used their module and product before?
Is there any other way to perform Job Costing without additional modules and yet can perform job tracking and costing elegantly? The Analytic Accounts is a functional possibility but its not an elegant solution and would require significant training for my staff to use the system properly. I require an "idiot-proof" system to create jobs, track costing and provide reports.
