Product Disassembling VS Assembling

on 3/29/16, 7:31 AM 390 views

Hi Guys,

I run a medium sized meat processing business. I buy slaughtered lamb and goat and process them into products that can be sold in butcher shops. The Manufacturing module and the BOM comes with it clearly won't cut it for the fololwing reasons.

This process involves pulling materials apart rather than assembling parts into a product. To further complicate the situation, there different product configurations: the same material can be made into 

Set A which includes products X, Y, and Z

or Set B, which includes product I, II and III

Is there any ways in Odoo, to achieve the following (or any part of this)

     to account for the movement of materials

     to transfer the cost of materials to the finished products

Jing, You will likely need to use the \mrp_byproducts module (available for V7, V8 & V9)  it allows you to generate multiple products from your incoming material.

From the mrp_byproducts documentation:

You can configure by-products in the bill of material.
Without this module:
A + B + C -> D
With this module:
A + B + C -> D + E

For the variations in what you can get from the original material you may need to use multiple BOMs (multiple Products).
