These are my comments in the pad. Not sure about the format

#34 (2014-09-04)
Original text: Define a manufactured product, quantity and uom
BOM should also be used as a set for sales. This would allow the user to create a list of all components that are sold together.
#37 (2014-09-04)
Original text: Have many BOM Versions but only one active at a specific date
There should be a default BOM version, but many BOM versions should be active at the same time
#40 (2014-09-04)
Original text: Define a product, quantity, uom, start date, end date and a list of products that can replace the component
This is not feasable, a product should be replaced either by another product or by a BOM. The replacement products/BOM should have a priority. 
#47 (2014-09-04)
Please use the terms "validity start" and "validity end"
#54 (2014-09-04)
original text: Specify the product related to the machine
This should not be done. A link between the machine and the product should not exist. But, a link should exist in the routing to say what machines fo a specific operation is allowed.
#56 (2014-09-04)
Original text: Specify a list of Machine Configuration
What is meant with machine configuration?
#57 (2014-09-04)
Original text: Specify a list of BOMs that the machine can produce
This should not be done. A link between the machine and the BOM should not exist. But, a link should exist in the routing to say what machines fo a specific operation is allowed.
#61(2014-09-04)
Original text:Specify the duration to prepare a machine before starting the production
This should be only a default value. This default value could be overwritten when creating the routing.
#62(2014-09-04)
Original text: Specify the duration to clean up a machine at the end of a production
This should be only a default value. This default value could be overwritten when creating the routing.
#63(2014-09-04) 
Original text: Specify the duration to change the machine configuration
This should be only a default value. This default value could be overwritten when creating the routing.
#68(2014-09-04) 
Original text: Specify product quantities (consumed and produced)
This should be done in the routing of a specific product. Otherwise, the system will not be generic enough. The routing should contain on the step related to the production operation all these information. My proposal is to create a sort of "template routing containin these information in general or for a specific product group or for a specific product. The consumed quantities are not linked to the machine, but a combination of routing and BOM.
#80(2014-09-04)
The whole chapter is very confused. It is not clear whether it is about a work center or about an operation. I propose a rewrite of this part.
The work center should be a group of people/machines that form an entity. A work center should be able to have both HR (even multiple people ) and machines assigned to it.

Dear Community,

The OCA would like to launch an initiative regarding the Odoo MRP module. Based on the numerous discussions we had in Belgium last June and the recent ones on the mailing list, MRP seems a very hot topic for many of us. 


Here is how we would like to proceed regarding the requirements definition:

  1. Register on the mailing list: we would like to ask anyone interested by the subject to register on the Inventory & MRP Experts mailing list: https://www.odoo.com/page/odoo-community

  2. Read and review the Odoo MRP requirements: The OCA would like to thank Ana and Pedro who contributed a great ground to start building our list of requirements. Please read and review them carefully at:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wfmiT5nAW7d9I4CAyNQ2IKdOLzpN1a0rnR6Q539lf6M/edit#gid=0

  3. Suggest changes: To move forward, we would like you to suggest changes using the following pad: http://pad.odoo.com/p/mrp. If you disagree with something on the pad, please start a discussion on the mailing list with your arguments. We will do our best to update the Odoo MRP requirements according to the pad content and the maturity of the changes.

Once, there will be no more changes, we will assume that the Odoo MRP requirements are mature and ready to be estimated and specified. The OCA will then be able to raise money, dispatch and fund the effort.

Please keep in mind that the objective we want to achieve here is to define WHAT we want to be able to do with the next Odoo MRP module, not HOW. So start your requirement with "User can..." in mind.

Thank you very much for your contributions.
