MRP Module Work Centers use Minutes only, need seconds

In the MRP module, the Work Centers feature only accepts hours and minutes as the cycle time entry (00:00). I need to enter the value as seconds as our machines have cycle times in seconds such as 7.2 seconds/cycle. How can we modify the field so that it starts accepting seconds and milliseconds?


Questions according to what I'm playing this scenario.
a.) 1 cycle = 7.2 seconds = 0.12 minutes = 0.0020 hours

Since odoo - openerp does not allow you to register fraction of time less than a minute I suggest setting your cycle follows.

b.) will use a base of 100 in order to have a larger number that allows us to configure our times to be able to place that accepts openerp.
for we say that 1 cycle = 1/100 and my time will be 1 * 100, that way I have the following numbers.

1 cycle = 1/100 = 0.01 = (7.2 * 100) = 720 seconds = 12 minutes = 0.20 hours. Now if I can now configure your work center follows.

Capacity per cycle = 0.01
1 Hour Cycle Time = 00:20 Hours

With this configuration you will get the same result.
