One feature of odoo is not need programming, only needs to adjust workflow to adapt to current user's worlfow.

But I hope to know when needs to program and customized module?


Is there a rule to help us recognize when workflow adjustment exceeds the user's workflow requirement and needs programming and customizing module?

Always use programming/custom modules to permanently alter the working of OpenERP/Odoo. Customizing Odoo from the GUI only ever works for fast demo purposes. 

Configuration can be done within the GUI, alterating alwasy from a module. At least that is how we run Odoo.

does programming/custom modules need to program in python?


modification xml is enough for most case and can satify most requirement?

Depends on the requirement. But keep in mind that a minimum module requires at leaste __init__ as well as __openerp__ files, which are python.
