Re: Continuous / Repetitive Manufacturing

Hi Tom/Kitti,

  Yes, we use Odoo for our chemical manufacturing plants and this is exactly what we do for our continuous processes. We don’t have a scheduled cron to enter the batches, but the supervisors enter batches periodically based on flow meter readings, tank levels, etc. 

  I don’t know about current Odoo versions, but we had to heavily customize Odoo 10 to get chemical batches to work for us within the Odoo manufacturing paradigm. I can say that even though is was some work, it’s just like everything in Odoo: I’d rather spend time customizing Odoo to work for our process than changing our processes to work for some ERP system.

What makes such processing different from having a ir.cron scheduled action that creates the same production order from the same BoM for each "batch" done, and in producing, assigning each such batch an individual lot number?

I worked in a chemical plant for some time and thats basically what they did - one batch per machine and time period, and then some QC testing done for each batch created - if product parameters outside perimeter, adjust process and throw away batch.

Dear community,

Are there anyone with experience around continuous / repetitive manufacturing and Odoo/OCA, i.e., chemical refinery plant, bio diesel plant, solar energy plant. The process with continuous stream of input material and by products.

It does seem to me that, Odoo has nothing around this area and is not a good solution, is it?

Thank you!
Kitti U.
