Hi my dear doers since we’re getting used to the manufacturing process i would like to enhance the flow of information within stealthy wood after all the company is destined to grow and i want to be sure good communication is established before new teams join us to do so odu developed an eco a.k.a change order feature once stealthy wood is big enough this part of the manufacturing process will be the manufacturing engineering team’s responsibility but for now i’ll handle it myself an eco is a document that outlines the proposed modifications to the products or parts affected by the requested change it’s a central information hub for everyone associated with a given product i need to set one up because it will help streamline product development and improvement everyone can have their eco type and companies can of course have several in my case one is enough because i want to change my table legs only to some that are more durable so let’s see how that will work in stealthy woods database all right here i am on my database.
Now the first thing we’re going to need to do is to create an eco type so i’m going to jump to the plm application go to configuration eco types and click on create now i’ll just need to name it for now so we’re going to put table revision and then i’m going to click on save now i’m only going to use this type when the bom of a table we produce is in need of a revision of course and then we’re going to jump to our dashboard while i have an overview of all of our eco types but i’m just going to jump directly to this one that we just created i’m going to start adding some columns or rather some stages so let’s go ahead and say new for the first column then in progress then validated effective and lastly refused because we want to keep track of those as well but we don’t need to see them all the time so i’m actually going to click on edit stage and click on folded in the kanban view so that i can have a better overview of what’s actually happening and we’ll see that the those that will be refused will be folded all right so let’s go ahead and modify our other stages as well and we’re going to start with the effective stage let’s click on the little cog icon and then go to edit stage now the first thing i’m going to do is to take allow to apply changes now by taking this i allow odoo to apply the requested changes to the billet material.
When the task reaches the stage i’m also going to check final stage and by ticking this odoo will automatically move the task to the stage when the final approval has been given and you’ll see below that we will actually be able to set up some approvals which i’m going to do on the other stages but let’s save this one for now as it’s the final stage i don’t need it for that one but we’re going to hop on over to new we’re going to edit this stage as well all right so i’m going to go ahead and add the first approval that needs to be done here so i’m going to just put uh acknowledge demand all right and the admin which is me will need to do this and then i have my approval type as well so i can say that this will be an optional approval it’s required or i just need to add a comment which is what i’m going to select for this first one all right and that’s all that needs to be done uh for the news stage so let’s go ahead and move on to in progress i’m going to modify this and i’m just going to say approve and i’m going to add the user which will be me again and this time i will say that it is required so that means that this approval must be done in order for the task to move to the next stage so he will be blocked here in progress until it is approved at which point i can then move it to the next stage which is the validated stage.
So by doing that i’m sure that only the correct changes are allowed so let’s save this and then lastly we have our validated stage now here i am going to allow to apply changes all right and i’m also going to add the final approval as well which needs to be done by the admin once again that’s me and it is required so let’s go ahead and save this and now that my columns my stages are all set up we’re going to create a new eco so i’m going to click on create and i’m going to add a short summary so i’m going to say replace table legs all right i have the type which of course is going to be table revision as we’re looking at um only this ethio type and then i can apply it on the product only or on the bill of material which is what i’m going to select then i’ll need to add my product and when i add the product the related bill of material is going to be automatically populated then we have our responsible which is me by default since i created this all right and then we have our effectivity so it’s going to be as soon as possible or we can even do this at a specific date of course if i select that i also need to select the specific date but i want to say as soon as possible below we can add some notes and then we’re going to go ahead and click on save and start new revision at which point we are going to have some additional tabs, such as bomb changes routing changes and then i’ll be able to see the um next required approval as well so in this case we’re in the new stage so uh we see that i need to acknowledge the demand.
So i’m going to go ahead and log a note and say looks good and then i’m going to move it to the next stage so i’m going to move it to in progress all right then we see that that um that role that approval has been done the demand was acknowledged so let’s go ahead and move it to validate but we can’t as i mentioned earlier once i have approval that’s required it must be approved before the task can be moved on to the next stage all right so let’s go ahead and click on ok ok and what i want to do is actually replace the table legs but first let’s reprove this for now all right and i see it’s approved i’m going to move it to the validated stage so now i’m able to do it because i completed that you also notice that i also have a reject button as well which may be required in some cases um but fortunately here i was able to approve it all right um and as i said i want to replace the table legs so what i’m going to do is actually click on update bom and you’ll also notice here that i have this smart button that will also let me access the bomb and i see that it’s revision number two and when i click on update bomb or when i go to that revision and under the miscellaneous tab we’re going to see that this is version two of the bomb now this is really important or really useful because by having this version feature and duplicating the old one when working on the new one odoo prevents problems like engineering e-bomb and manufacturing in-bomb overlay so by doing so i will only modify the bomb one time and manufacturing operators won’t have to juggle with several different bombs at the same time so that’s just odoo’s uh unique way of managing that process all right so here i am i’m modifying the bomb i’m going to click on edit i’m going to remove the old table legs and add table leg version 2 because that is what we want to update and then i’m going to save this i’m going to hop back to the eco all right and if i go to bom changes i’m going to be able to see what has been changed so even though i did that directly on the bomb we’re going to see those changes here so i saw that i removed the old legs and added the new legs all right i will also be able to see routing changes as well if i make some of those which i didn’t hear all right and of course i can keep track of my approval so here i am on the validated stage and i want to go ahead and approve this change all right.
So i’m going to click on approve and i can apply those changes right away so let’s click on apply changes and once i’ve clicked on apply changes it moves automatically to the effective stage um and if i go to my bomb i’m going to see that um this is now my production bill of material because it no longer has that archived flag that we saw earlier on and when i go to the bill of material so let’s go to our bills of materials quickly here i’m using the shortcuts we’re going to go to our table and when i go to miscellaneous i’m going to see that we are actively using the version 2 or the second revision of this bill of material here so i can easily keep track of everything that’s going on so that’s all for this video thank you for watching and if i don’t see you go afternoon good evening and good night
