There are different reports generated in the reporting feature of Odoo 16 such as Work Orders, Manufacturing Orders, Overall Equipment Effectiveness, and Production Analysis. Let’s look into each of the reports to get a clear understanding of the reporting feature of the manufacturing module in Odoo.

=> Work Orders

Work orders provide detailed information about the work to be performed, including the scope, materials, labor, and other relevant details.

The ‘Work Orders’ report has various measures to be selected to customize the report such as ‘Carried Quantity’, ‘Cost per hour’, ‘Duration (mins)’, ‘Duration Deviation (%)’, ‘Duration per unit’, ‘Expected Duration’, ‘Quantity’ and ‘Count’. The measure selected in the below screenshot is the Expected Duration.

You can view the analytics according to different stages of the work orders by selecting the desired stage from the filters option. We can also change the view of the report from a bar chart to a line chart, pie chart, Gantt chart, list, pivot table, stacked chart, and so on. Additionally, we can add a custom filter to get the required set of work orders other than the default filters available in the dashboard.

=> Manufacturing Orders

These orders provide detailed instructions for the production process, guiding the manufacturing team through the various stages of production. It typically includes a Bill of Materials (BOM), Routing or Work Instructions, Quantity and Specifications, Resource Allocation, Timeline and Scheduling, and Cost Estimation.

The report gives every detail regarding the manufacturing orders created at the selected time. The measures available in the report include ‘Product Quantity’, ‘Quantity Produced’, ‘Quantity To Produce’, and ‘Count’.

Numerous filtering options are also available in the manufacturing orders report as you can see in the image below. The filtering can be done according to various stages and periods.

The ‘Group By’ option of the manufacturing report enables the users to categorize manufacturing orders according to ‘Product’, ‘Status’, ‘Material Availability’, ‘Procurement Group’, and ‘Scheduled Date’ and also have the option to add custom groups.

=> Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)

OEE provides insights into how well equipment is performing in terms of availability, performance, and quality. It is a valuable metric for assessing and improving overall operational efficiency.

The OEE Report gives insights into different measures such as the Duration of the operation in the work center, Employee Cost, and Count.

The above screenshot displays all the filter options available in the report such as Availability Losses, Performance Losses, Quality Losses, Fully Productive, Date, and Custom Filter.

The views of the reports can be changed at any time by selecting the desired view in the dashboard. We also have the ‘Group By’ option to group OEE based on the User, Work Center, and Loss Reason and can add a Custom Group. In the ‘Favourites’ option next to Group By, we can Save the current search, Link the menu in a spreadsheet, Insert the view in an article, Insert the link in an article, and add the report to a dashboard.

=> Production Analysis

The Production Analysis report of the manufacturing module provides key insights on numerous metrics such as Average Component cost per unit, Average Operation cost per unit, Average Subcontracting cost per unit, Average Total cost per unit, Duration of Operations per unit, Quantity produced, Total Component cost, Total Cost, Total Duration of Operations, Total Operation cost, Total Subcontracting cost, and Count.

If you select the ‘Pivot’ view from the top-right corner of the dashboard, you will have the option to download the table as an Excel sheet and Flip axis.

There is an additional option available in the Production Analysis report. The ‘Comparison’ button is just near the filter and the group by options is used to compare the production value of our business with a previous period and with the previous year.
