We would like to use odoo to run our new company, manufacturing computer systems.  We would like to create skus consisting of other products, and have the cost calculated.  can the bill of materials be used in that way, or do you have to put a cost in on the product entry?

we would like to kep track of margins using this system, and track how deeply products were discounted...maybe even having a discount limit.  

can the multi-company function be used for resellers, with access to products?

For the first part Yes, you can generate the Product Cost Structure from "Sales--> Product--> Product Variants -> select Product -> Print -> Product Cost Structure". This is for version 8.0. Each product need its Cost Price updated to display on the superior Bill of Materials.

thanks for the tip, but I need the cost reflected in the interface, like the cost from BOM module does.

looks like I’ll be porting it to v8

 

Thanks,

Barry Smoke

You can build your own custom module for this requirement. You can proceed in these ways: You should first inherit mrp.bom and add a new field 'price_unit': fields.float('Unit Price') and redefine the onchange_product_id function define compute_price and compute_total function to calculate "line price" and "total price" Then you have to inherit mrp.production and define compute_production_cost function to update cost_price from BOM. We have created this custom module and it works perfect , in my module it takes avg purcahse price in BOM and we added an extra tab to manufactring form to compute Production Cost , in that tab you can add extra charges like electicity etc.. , that charges also added to cost by calculating per_unit charge depending on UOM. for any help you can contact us baijuks@hotmail.com, akhil.p.sivan007@gmail.com
