Manufacturing order without BOM

I'm trying to add a manufacturing order which doesn't need any raw materials from my end. So it doesn't need any BOM. But I can't create it? Is this possible?

I need this in manufacturing route, not via purchasing.

This is a miracle! How do you do that??? Joke aside, are you talking about subcontracting, providing a service or what else? How can you manufacture something that does not need material and/or labour?

Yes, it needs materials. But the company doing the manufacturing is spending money on it, not us. So we don't need the BOM.

So this is subcontracting?

Hi all

this is also what I'm looking for

I'm working on a "transformation industry" area where we get materials from partners and we only apply some treatments/services on the materials and then we send them agin to the customer.

So we don't really need a BOM but just define some routings and operations to be done (very similar to a project)

Don'"t know how to solve that with Odoo
