Job Shop Setup - possible?

By

I have just recently installed OpenERP 8 on my sinology server as a test installation.  I have it running and I can load different modules.


My question is what would be the appropriate way to set up my company?  We are a manufacturer that takes raw material and processes it into a product. (granite slabs into tops).  We carry inventory and also buy per the job.  We don't add any additional "bill of material" items to the product.  The work order runs thru different work areas where either people or machines manipulate the raw product until it is a finished product.

Would I set this up as a project with tasks or as a MRP (Job) with different tasks?  Are there any samples out there that I can look at as a starting point.

There are many industry specific products already out there that can do this.  We prefer to operate with in house products if possible so that we have the most control over development and tweaking.


Thanks in advance for your help and guidance.

You can't have a more typical example for an MRP case than this. And it is a relatively simple one too. You have a raw product (slabs) and a finished product (tops) as a simple BoM and some processing steps (jobs).
