Odoo Bill of Materials

Bill of Materials (BoM) in Odoo is a list of raw materials or ingredients and its respective quantities needed to manufacture the final product. BoM is the basic building block of any manufacturing process.

In Odoo, each product may have multiple Bill of Materials(BoM) associated with it. But a Bill of Material can only be associated with a single product. A single Bill of material can describe multiple variants of the same product. While creating a manufacturing order for a particular product we need to select the corresponding Bill of Material of that product from BoM list. So before creating a Bill of Material, make sure that all the raw materials are already created in the product list.

To create a Bill of Material of a product from the product form itself by clicking on the Bill of Materials as seen in the window.

Or you can create from the manufacturing menu by selecting master data and then Bill of Materials.

Now,you will get a list view of bill of materials.From this window click on create button.

click on create button on the list view of bill of materials

Then fill the fields to create a BoM.

Product,Product Variant,Quantity,Reference,BoM Type and Routing are the required fields.

  • Product: Final product to manufacture.
  • Product Variant: You can add variants to a product that comes in more than one option, such as size or colour.
  • Quantity: Quantity of the product which you need.
  • Reference: Reference is an easy way to differentiate each BoM in the list while creating a Manufacturing Order.
  • BoM Type: This is the type of BoM. It is of two types,
    1.  Manufacture this product
    2. Kit: It is a useful feature to sell a product as components.

  • Routing: This option makes the manufacturing process more advanced. Routing allows each company to configure more detailed manufacturing process matching their internal workflow by setting up Work Centers, Work Orders etc.

Routing allows each company to configure more detailed manufacturing process matching their internal workflow by setting up Work Centers, Work Orders etc.

We can also create and edit the routing.

In routing, we can specify each operation conducted in the manufacturing process and each operation will have its own corresponding work centre too.

To add each raw material and its quantity in the Components tab by clicking Add an Item.After you added all the components, click Save button.

Then in the Miscellaneous tab you can add sequence,manufacturing read lines and operation.

  • Sequence: It is used to prioritise the BoM of a particular product.
  • Manufacturing Readiness:
    • All Components Available:

The Material Requirements Planning(MRP) order will stay at waiting stage until all the components in the BoM are available.

    • The components of 1st operation :

The manufacturing process will be possible even if the components are partially available.

  • Operation:

It is not a mandatory field.When a procurement has a produce route with a picking typeset, it will try to create a Manufacturing Order for that product using a BoM of the same picking type.That allows defining a procurement rule which will trigger different manufacturing orders with different BoMs.

You can add the Byproducts by clicking Add an item in the following window.When we manufacture the product with this BoM the byproducts will be created automatically.
