Dear Balázs!

  There are different problems - the manufacturing with with variable output and continuous production.
Variable output can be done changing the finished goods qty on manufacturing order.
You can set a BOM with theoretical quantities, and adjust it before done the MO.
Continuous production needs more organisational methods - split the production flow by time (hours, days) or other criteria, and create the BOM accordinly.

Best regards,

Dear All!

I would like to manage cutting of herbs with odoo, based on kg (volumes) and not on UNITS (quanties). The odoo work order insits on the BoM, however in real life the volumes produced of theese nature products vary. It would not be a serious problem but odoo does not allow me to „continue production“ (close a work order) until I produced everything.

In short: the quanities/volumes of the raw materials required for a manufacturing process vary most of the time.

Is such a thing doable with odoo?

Kind Regards
