you can read openerp documentation for multi company to know if it is what you need, see :


Hope this will help and works.


Thanks GEM, I looked at this but it seems to only generate stock movements and i need to have PO and SO between the companies. Essentially it needs to be as if they are completely separate entities, who just happen to have the same products.

Now, in Enterprise version 11. You can create multiple routes for your multiple companies. I also set up the same scenario where Company A will purchase Product A from Company B and Company B will manufacture it with MTO.

To set up this thing you can activate intercompany rules in Company form, inter-company tab. (Please note this feature is only available in Enterprise edition). This set up creates automatic Purchase Order/Sales Order for a Company B if you are creating Sales Order/ Purchase Order from Company A and selecting Company B as a partner.

After this set up you can set up you can set up multiple routes. I create following routes for each company

1. Buy for Company A

2. Buy for Company B

3. Manufacture for Company A

4. Manufacture for Company B

Setup you product and try creating Orders....!!

Regarding stock you would just have to define a separate shop/warehouse/locations for each company This thread will help you with that:


As for separate procurement I also had this issue and managed to solve it with a simple script that I've whipped up in 5 minutes (hence it might not be that stable)


It is only partially tested on version 7, if I can help out a bit more with it please let me know

Good luck!

To achieve this, the trick is on the property for each company i.e on the settings>parameters>configuration parameters. For each company make sure that you have defined it Income/Expense accounts property, Receivable and Payable accounts property etc. Then on the product do not set the Income/Expense accounts. Make sure that also on the Product category you have not defined the income and expense accounts. 

When you switch from company A to company B, openerp automatically selects the correct income/expense accounts using the property defined for that company. Properties are defined in the model ir.property. Remember to also define properties for ir.sequences. Hope this helps.

There is a new module that you can use to create a workflow for multi-company PO and SOs.
