Re: Tracking packagings in stock

- 28/05/2024 12:20:59
Probably I am missing something here.

However, please let me offer my 2c by asking the following:
- wouldn't it be that the natural solution is to manage the type of packaging in parallel to the type of products? In my experience, dealing with products in various physical structures (solid, gas, liquid, powder) and not having the various types of packaging is "insane" :-).
Certainly, I am missing something in the initial question.

Best regards, )

Dear OCA members,

I have been confronted with the following issue, and made a module with the link below for something of a fix.

Here is the use case: in addition to knowing how many units of products we have in stock, we want to know under what packagings there products are. For example: not only do I want to know I have 95 units in stock, I want to know that I have 5 packages of 10 units and 2 packages of 25 (because one has been opened and 5 units taken out from it).

It seems modifying the stock.quant model to take into account these packagings would be a hairy task as it is a core model that is read to/written to in a bunch of places.

Our simple solution is to create an intermediary model and a computed field on stock.quants and products that will store this information: 

This allows to preserve native Odoo functionality but also serves our requirement (we only care about showing this, for some data that we receive from a connector to another WMS). It works in our situation but someone out there might have thought of a more general approach, what do you think ?

Best regards,
