Estimated costs in manufacturing orders

This module extends the functionality of MRP adding estimates for Manufacturing Orders costs, as followed:

  • Raw Material cost: for each material to be consumed in the MO, an analytic line is generated at product cos
  • Operators time: for the time recorded by the operators during each operation, one analytic line will be generated (number of lines to be equal to the number of operators).
  • Machine time: for each operation, one analytic line will be created in the associated routing, taking whether the hourly cost or, if missing, the cost per cycle.

This module also allows to create some manufacturing orders called "virtual", that don't permit to be confirmed, but include the buttons for estimating the costs of the selected manufactured product.


This module depends on the module product_variant_cost_price, that is available in:


When the manufacturing order is confirmed, analytic lines are automatically generated in order to estimate the costs of the production

A new menu is available "Virtual Manufacturing Orders for cost estimation" where the user can managed virtual MO:

  • When a new MO is created and the new field "active" is false, the MO will be considered virtual. It is only used for cost estimation and can not be confirmed.
  • To estimate the cost of the MO, the user has to press the button "Compute data" in the tab "Work Orders".
  • These virtual MO have a separate sequence number.
  • The user can create a virtual MO directly from the product form.
