Hey Ana,

Thanks so much for your response!!

I appreciate the references and will take a look at each one.

I was really surprised that this functionality was not included in the core piece of Odoo.

I was concerned that one could not calculate a true cost of a manufactured part.

In my line of work, labor is the largest part of the manufactured part.

Again, really appreciate your response.

Link between timesheets and MRP is not included on Odoo Core.

We added that link on OdooMRP (sorry for spamming community with OdooMRP links but during last days a lot of people is asking for functionality that it's available by now in our project regarding to manufacturing and I don't know any other way of answering them)

So...again, please take a look here:

You would need at less mrp_project_link module + mrp_production_real_costs . If you also would like to collect stimated cost you would also need mrp_production_project_estimated_cost

You also could take a look to this small video trying to show how we are collecting those costs:

This question may have asked previously regarding Odoo. I have been looking through the MRP module and am having difficulty in determining how labor costs are associated with the manufacturing process. I cannot see how to link labor costs from time sheets or project management to an individual Work Order. 

There are times when a product is manufactured or fabricated at a work station not using a particular machine but rather labor and either purchased or fabricated parts. How is the labor costs associated with that particular module part in a work order?

How would one know if you are winning or losing on a manufacturing project at the work order level? 

Thanks in advance for responses.
