Odoo MRP/Sales System Advice

Hello Everyone,

I've been trying for some time now to find an erp solution to my business. I've played around with odoo 10 and odoo 9 quite a bit but I'm not getting the functionality I hoped for as features appear to be missing from either version. So hopefully some significantly more experienced users can advise me on my setup!

Firstly, I'll explain the functionality I'm aiming for:
My business provides a service on our customers products. So they purchase our service online and send their product in, we perform our service and send the new product back with the old product. The service is a multi stage process, so it goes through workstions A > B > C > D. The scheduling of each order will allow employees to view the MO's ready for their processing stage.

Odoo is almost perfect for this as the manufacturing app allows routings ect. But as there there was no sales order information on the MO, this would make things incredibly confusing/unusable. I was advised in a pervious post to use an custom app called sales_mrp, so I found one for odoo 9 (there wasn't one for odoo 10). Downloaded odoo 9, installed on ubuntu, installed custom app. But to my dismay there is no workcenters dashboard for odoo 9, which was essential as each process needs to have a live view of orders ready for each workcenter.

What do you guys suggest? Is there something I'm missing? Will I need to get a sales MRP info developed for odoo 10?

Thanks in advance I really appreciate any help given!

Best Wishes,

Hello, I have studied your case.
As you are selling the service, I suggest you use the Project  Module of the odoo 10.

It will directly sync your sales order and create the task. To learn that how to sync your sales order with project task go to below link.
