Smarter Task Descriptions in Odoo: The Power of LLMs

Smarter Task Descriptions in Odoo: The Power of LLMs

Author: Kerrim Abd El Hamed

Here at MuK IT, we’re always pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with Odoo. Creating effective task descriptions that are both clear and comprehensive remains a persistent challenge in task management, highlighting a need for new solutions. While project managers strive for clarity, crafting these descriptions often becomes a time-consuming bottleneck. This is where the exciting capabilities of Large Language Models (LLMs) come into play.

Current task management within Odoo, while functional, relies heavily on user-generated descriptions. This approach suffers from several limitations:

  • Inconsistency: Variations in writing styles and detail can lead to misunderstandings and hinder efficient task handover.
  • Time Consumption: Crafting detailed descriptions, especially for complex tasks, can eat into valuable project time.
  • Limited Context: Descriptions often lack the broader project context, potentially leading to misinterpretations and inefficient execution.

LLMs offer a compelling solution. By training these models on vast datasets of project documentation, code repositories, and even communication logs, we can teach them to understand the nuances of project language and the relationships between tasks, goals, and project history.

Imagine a scenario where, instead of manually drafting descriptions, a project manager can feed the LLM key information:

  • Task Goal: What needs to be achieved?
  • Technical Requirements: What specific technologies or tools are involved?
  • Dependencies: Are there any related tasks that need to be completed first?

The LLM can then generate a comprehensive task description, automatically incorporating relevant details from past project data and ensuring clarity, consistency, and even suggesting potential subtasks for improved breakdown.

We’re currently in the exciting phase of developing and training such models for our own usage. While challenges remain in ensuring accuracy, the potential of LLMs to revolutionize task management within Odoo is immense. At MuK IT, we’re excited to be at the forefront of this development, pushing the boundaries of how AI can empower businesses to work smarter, not harder.
