Smartclass - Advanced Inventory & MRP
Luogo: Inventory & MRP - 07/11/23, 09:00 - 07/11/23, 17:00 (Europe/Brussels) (8 ore)

This smartclass will be held over two days: Monday November 6th and Tuesday November 7th.

Entrance to this smartclass includes breakfast, lunch and drinks during the two days.


This training requires to already have a medium to strong knowledge of Supply Chain Management and Manufacturing from a business perspective and have a good knowledge of the Odoo Inventory and Manufacturing apps. At the start of the training, a quick introductory session is going to be held in order to have all participants sharing the same understanding of both apps.

Why should you attend?
Always starting from the business needs as well as the related job positions in a typical manufacturing company and its supply chain processes, you'll see for each topic how it actually translates in the Odoo data model structure (why this design choice has been made?), which functional configuration is the most adapted and what are the best practices for each use-case presented. We are aiming at finding the right balance between theoretical knowledge and practical skills applicable right after the training. The training will be done in Odoo 17 and it will be the opportunity to present you how the new features work.
