  • Split Manufacturing Order into separate orders

    In Odoo order split enables you to split an existing production order, for which processing may have already begun, into two separate production orders. These production orders are executed separately from a logistic perspective. When you split an order, you split off part of the order quantity (split quantity) of a production order (parent order) from a certain operation of the standard sequence (split operation). The quantity that is split off is produced in a separate production order (child order). In the process, the operations from the split operation onwards are copied from the parent order to the child order, along with the assigned material components. The system automatically recalculates all the quantities affected by the order split.

    Let’s have an example to split quantity in different MO in Odoo.

    Here we have one product Laptop Customized having Bill of material with following products: Windows 7 Professional, iMac, Mouse Wireless.
