Is it possible to send the customer name to a custom field in a Manufacturing Order when a Sales Order is confirmed for a Make to Order / Manufacture product? I know it is sending some data from the SO, becuase the Source Document field is automatically filled, but I can't find the code that does that to base my custom module off of.

Ultimately I am trying to add a Customer field to the Work Orders view, so that I can search by customer and see the status of their various orders instead of having to enter them individually by Manufacturing Order number. Any insight? Similarly, I would like to send the Customer Reference field from the Sales Order to the Purchase Order that is automatically generated, so that I can search by Customer Reference in the Purchase Order view.

I am also trying to achieve this. Did you ever get anywhere with a module?

The module that passes the Source Document to Manufacturing is sale_mrp. Unfortunately that module is not written in such a way that it can be inherited into your own module.

Update :- 

I found a wonderful app which does this:-
