Technical

The MRP Production Add Item module adds a new Transient Model (Wizard) `wiz.add.production.item` that allows users to add a new product to be consumed on manufacturing orders. This wizard has the following fields:

  • `product_id` Many2one field for the Product to be added

  • `product_qty` Float field for the Quantity of the product to be added

  • `product_upm_id` Many2one field for the Unit of Measure of the product to be added

  • `production_id` Many2one field for the Production Order the product is being added to, which has the default `active_id` for the production order the wizard was launched from

This uses the existing procurement group and routes to procure additional items.
