Manufacturing: Manufacturing Workflows: Basic 1-Step Manufacturing


The purpose of this document is to demonstrate the basic workflow of the 1-step manufacturing process in the Odoo 14 Manufacturing application.



To get started, navigate to the Inventory application. 

Navigate to Configuration > Warehouse ManagementWarehouses. Edit an existing warehouse, or create a new warehouse. Refer to the Inventory > Warehouses + Locations documentation for more information on creating a new warehouse.

Under the Warehouse Configuration tab, find the Manufacture field in the Resupply section and set it to 'Manufacture (1 step)'. 

 When done, click save

Manufacturing Order

Navigate to the Manufacturing app.

Once there, go to Operations > Manufacturing Orders and click create. Complete the form according to the instructions outlined in the Manufacturing Orders documentation. Under the Miscellaneous tab, ensure the warehouse you've configured for 1-step manufacturing is selected.

When you're ready, click confirm.

Next, click Check Availability to reserve components.

Good to Know!

Work Orders?

If you have Work Orders enabled in configuration, and there are operations on your Bill of Materials, you'll Plan your order and complete it via work orders first.

Step 1: Complete Production

Because there is only one step in this process, you'll now complete the production of your product. When you're done, enter the quantity that was completed in the Quantity field, then click Mark as Done.

Your manufacturing order is now complete. Now, click the  Product Moves smart button.

Here we can see that components were moved from stock to production, then finished products were moved from production to stock.
