Operations In Odoo Inventory

The methodical handling of a company's stock, including its raw materials, components, and completed goods, is referred to as Inventory Operations. Processing and warehousing are also involved. Inventory managers direct a team to receive and register new goods while keeping an eye on the company's inventory levels. Daily deliveries, assessing fresh supplies, and researching suppliers are among their responsibilities. We will go through the process of setting different product Reservation Methods offered by the Odoo 16 Inventory Module in this blog session. You can install and open the Odoo 16 Inventory Module to start with the process. 

Inventory Overview Dashboard

A comprehensive description of all potential Inventory Operations, including receipts, Internal Transfers, Delivery Orders, Returns, Manufacturing, Resupply Subcontractors, POS Orders, Dropship, and others, is provided in the Inventory module's "Inventory Overview" window. In the menu bar, the module provides unique choices for managing various tasks independently. Particularly in a multi-company situation, where the overview encompasses inventory operations for all specified businesses, the platform concisely summarizes all activities.

To create a new operation type in Odoo, each of the following fields must be filled out: "Type of Operation," "Sequence Prefix,", "Barcode," "Reservation Method," and "Company." By using the Ask option in the “Create Backorder” area, you can decide whether or not to place a backorder for any unsold items. You can also products traceability features inside the “TRACEABILITY” section. Additionally, the product source and destination locations can be set under the “LOCATIONS” tab.

Now, we are going to concentrate on the different types of “Reservation Methods” and their sample scenarios. In Odoo Inventory, the products are preserved in transfers according to the Reservation Method, whether Manually, At confirmation, or Before the Scheduled Date.

1. At Confirmation

In this Reservation Method, the products or services will be reserved immediately after confirming the order. So, after setting the Reservation Method as “At Confirmation,” we can check the functionality from the Odoo 16 Manufacturing Module.

A new Manufacturing Order can be easily created by opening the application and selecting "Operations" from the menu.

We are making a manufacturing order request for a new product in this instance; thus, we require specific components. Therefore, when you click the "CONFIRM" button, the components will be reserved right away because we have "At Confirmation" selected as the Reservation Method in our inventory.

The Manufacturing Order has been confirmed, as can be seen in the Pipeline Stages section. After that, the "Transfers" smart button will show the component details. The view of this feature will be different for each type of Operation Type. After confirming the Manufacturing Order, you can proceed with the next steps.

3. Before Scheduled Date

The items or components will be reserved using this reservation method before a certain number of days from the actual manufacture date.  Thus, you can select "Before scheduled date" as the Reservation Method in the Inventory Module and specify the number of days before the planned date that you wish to reserve the components in the "Reserve before scheduled date" column.
