Real costs in manufacturing orders

This module allows to manage the control of Manufacturing Orders actual costs, by creating analytic lines as defined in the MO (from mrp_project).

It also updates product standard price when a manufacturing orders is finished according this formula:

(Product stock * Product standard price + Production real cost) / (Product stock + Final product quantity)


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


Processing a manufacture order, analytic entries adding costs will be created when:

  • Some raw material is consumed.
  • A work order is finished or paused.
  • Also, together with project_timesheet module, users time is also translated to costs in the linked analytic account.

The sum of all these analytic entries is the real cost:

MRP Real Cost Details

Cost/cycle = all overhead costs associated with running one work centre cycle (where a cycle is the Number of Cycles as calculated in the Work Order).

Cost/hr = calculated as all overhead costs associated with running the work centre (excluding any costs covered in the cost per cycle) / the number of hours the work centre is operating.

Pre-operation cost = Time before prod. x cost of the Pre-operation costing product

Post-operation cost = Time after prod. x cost of the Post-operation costing product

It’s up to the user to determine overhead costs as accurately as possible and use all, some or none of them in order to reflect their manufacturing process.
