Hi my dear doers nowadays more and more businesses send their materials to other companies to produce the finished goods that action is called subcontracting and here at stealthy wood we rely on subcontractors as it provides many strategic benefits. It gives us the opportunity to focus on key operations, while our partners perform other tasks throughout the manufacturing process and since our subcontractors team will be doing part of the job it enables us to offer more without having to worry about extra hiring and staffing after all maintaining a small staff is critical for us.
As we have many secrets in fact bruce wayne wouldn’t be happy if everybody knew that he was batman oh wait jokes aside as our subcontractors use their own equipment we don’t have to invest in expensive machinery, which means we have more money to invest in our core business so let’s dive into selfie with database to see how we can rely on subcontractors all right here i am on my database the first thing we’re going to do is jump to manufacturing configuration settings and for this video we want to be sure we have subcontracting activated which i already do and as we have already seen in some previous videos some processes use bills of materials and at stealthy wood we actually use them a lot and to subcontract products using odoo they are necessary.
So we’re going to go to the products menu and we’re going to click on bills of materials and here we have a list of all of our bills and materials and as you may know stealthy wood is a wood furniture manufacturer and all of our manufacturing processes are managed by ourselves but in order to offer more we would like to sell new products such as lamps to sell alongside our desks unfortunately we’re not very skilled with electrical components so that’s why we’re going to send our raw materials to a subcontractor who manufactures the electrical parts for us. so let’s go ahead and create a new bill of material by clicking on the create button.
Now the first thing i’m going to do is actually to change the bom type because i know this is a subcontrary subcontracting bill of material so for manufacturers products let’s change that to subcontracting and once i select that i of course will need to add my subcontractor so we’re going to add azure interior as our subcontractor and you can have multiple subcontractors if needed then we’re going to select our products this is going to be for our office lamp and then after we’ve added the product we of course will add components as we would for any other build material so let’s go ahead and add a lampshade a lamp base and a bulb all right something else to point out is that on each of these components on the product page underneath the inventory tab i have a resupply subcontractor on order selected so you do need to have that um activated on the product page for each of your components for a sub contracting bill of material all right so i have that saved for each of these components let’s go ahead and save this bomb all right now if i want my subcontractor product i simply need to order it from the subcontractor and i’m going to do so from the purchase application so let’s jump to purchase create an rfq add the subcontractor and the product of course so our office lamp here then i’m going to save and confirm this rfq turning it into a po now once i have done that we’re actually going to jump to the inventory application because of course my subcontractor will need the materials in order to manufacture this lamp.
So i’m going to send the materials to their location so the job can be done so under delivery orders we’re going to jump to the eighth delivery orders that are waiting all right and i see um that there is a delivery order here for azure interior all right i see the source document as well which is um the receipt so we’re gonna go ahead and select that jump to operations i’m going to have all of my components here so it’s really convenient once i created that purchase order this delivery order to send the products to the subcontractor was automatically generated all right so let’s go ahead and check the availability and we’re going to validate this delivery order okay apply and that’s done so let’s imagine they received the components and they have manufactured the product sent it back to us now we can go ahead and receive it in odoo so let’s go back to our inventory dashboard and we’re going to go to our receipts all right so i have this receipt from azure interior and i see now that it’s ready to go, so let’s go ahead and validate this we’re going to apply we’ve seen we have received the product and that’s it nothing is easier um and it’s all thanks to odoo and thank you for watching that’s all for this video and if i don’t see you good afternoon good evening and good night
