Odoo Manufacturing Maintenance Management

Odoo Manufacturing Maintenance Management

The manufacturing industry is concerned with the creation of many sorts of items. The footwear, and furniture sectors, as well as the telecommunications, electronic, petrochemical, and food processing sectors, are all important manufacturing businesses.

All sectors rely on a variety of machines and other equipment to complete the production process. Aside from supervising production and managing raw material purchases and product sales, investors will need to pay attention to the maintenance management of the machinery utilized in the sector. 

Machines account for the majority of an investor's investment in a manufacturing enterprise. As a result, we must ensure that our equipment works correctly and for a longer amount of time. For this, the equipment must be serviced on a regular basis.  Odoo maintenance

Odoo Manufacturing is a manufacturer.

Odoo 14 ERP is an open-source application, contains modules devoted to managing manufacturing and maintenance operations. Odoo 14 also provides for simple integration of the production and maintenance modules.

If you use Odoo support to manage to manufacture, you can also rely on the maintenance procedure that has been developed for your company. This is to ensure the quality of your items. Odoo 14 assists you in tracking equipment, scheduling maintenance and creating and resolving maintenance requests. Users of Odoo may handle maintenance activities in two ways: preventive and corrective. 

What is the best way to discuss preventative maintenance?

Preventive maintenance may be defined as maintenance performed on a regular basis, particularly in advance, to avoid unexpected mechanical breakdown. When the machine is in excellent working order, we may do preventative maintenance activity. When a piece of equipment fails, it usually emits a warning signal.
Preventive maintenance is performed prior to the occurrence of this failure. 

What is the purpose of Corrective Maintenance?

Corrective maintenance may be defined as the process of repairing a mistake. Because it is all about machines, corrective maintenance tries to fix a machine's mechanical mistake. When there are mechanical faults and machines cease working, we rely on corrective maintenance.

This type of maintenance procedure aids in identifying the problem. IT assists in finding the root cause and resolving the issue as soon as possible in order to restore machine and work center operations.

Corrective and preventative maintenance performed at regular intervals will assist the company in avoiding equipment failure. 

Equipment management is critical for controlling the industry's overall productivity.
The primary advantages of maintenance management are as follows:

- Preventing manufacturing losses

- Efficient use of work centers

- Cut down on component waste.

- Minimize downtime

- There is no labor waste.

- Maximization of machine usage 

How can the Odoo Maintenance module be used in the Manufacturing module?

First, we must install the module. Yes, indeed. We may now utilize it to handle many sorts of maintenance operations.

We can also discover columns where we may put in information such as department, employee, other, maintenance team, and so on.

Make an Equipment Category.

Before beginning maintenance, we must first construct an equipment category.

Let's see how it goes. We have a Configuration menu in the Maintenance module, underneath which we can discover Equipment Categories. 

To create the category, we just select the CREATE option. We may put in the specifics such as category name, personnel responsible, and firm name here.

We need to examine the status of maintenance work, which requires the creation of a maintenance stage.
This is accomplished by selecting the Maintenance Stages Configuration option from the Configuration menu. 

To create a form, click the Create button. We may name and manage the phases. 

Makeup Maintenance Requests

In the manufacturing business, we might initiate a maintenance request using the production or maintenance modules. We may go directly to the Maintenance request in the Maintenance module and create a new request. Similarly, we may create maintenance requests using the Manufacturing module. This may be done via a Manufacturing Order, Work Orders, or Work Center.
