MRP functionality

MRP 2 – full-blown Manufacturing Resource Planning. Manufacturing ERP with production scheduling functionality:

  • Capacity planning,
  • Materials planning,
  • Routings,
  • Automatic operations scheduling based on available resources and lead times of materials,
  • Calendars, Gantt charts,
  • Drag-and-drop rescheduling,
  • Multi-level manufacturing orders.

MRP 1 – Material Requirements Planning:

  • Simplistic, but not easy and not powerful.
  • Manual scheduling of manufacturing operations.
  • No automatic scheduling based on materials availability, lead time, and workstation capacity.
  • Difficult to manage complex products and production processes.

Limited Work in Progress (WIP) accounting.

User interface

Simple and streamlined.

A lot of screens and dialogues.



Target customer

Manufacturing companies with 10-200 employees.

As manufacturing module is only an add-on, not the focus of the software, a manufacturing client is not the main target customer.

Functionality is mainly designed for service, wholesale, and retail companies.

Support materials

Detailed User Manual.

Contextual help in software.

Detailed training videos.

Simplistic User Manual.

Simplistic training videos.

Mainly not focused on the needs of a manufacturing company.


Manufacturing professionals are able to implement the software independently, without the need of consultants.

Due to the very modular nature, it is not easy to implement Odoo at a real manufacturing company without the help of software specialists.

The code probably needs to be customized a lot.

Add-on modules from 3rd parties probably need to be bought extra.

Ann Richmond

Development Director, Randr

You guys are truly the best and the software is such a lifesaver for small companies like ours. Also just a note, our ISO auditors really liked everything that MRPeasy had. Everything is documented within the system!! And we do not need any additional systems.


Benjamin Raffiani

CEO, Sox Trot

Best value in the small manufacturing space by far. With MRPeasy, our capacity doubled. It streamlined our production, and procurement so well that I’m now able to spend a lot more time on growth and sales. Extremely comprehensive and works seamlessly with Xero and Shopify.
