How to Manage Lots in Odoo 14

Functional Odoo 14 Warehouse

Lot is a common term used in any industry. We can explain a lot as the number of pieces or units of a particular product. Or in other words, a lot can be identified as a batch of products. In such cases, products manufactured in a single batch can be identified with the help of lt number. Usually, a lot number is used during the trading of a product. 

Lot management is a very crucial part of any business. Lot number helps to track the product or we can say that the lot number increases the traceability of a product.

Odoo Lot is a group of products of the same type. Odoo enables the use of Lot number in the sale, purchase, inventory management, and manufacturing modules. Another similar feature enabled by Odoo is the serial number. In Odoo Serial number is the identification number allocated to an individual product whereas a lot number is a number used to identify the batch of products. 

Lots are useful during the transaction of the bulk quantity of products. The Lot number helps in quality management, reporting, and tracing. As all products prepared in one batch get the same Lot number, it is easy to return the products or send the product for repair on detecting any damage. 

To make use of the Lot management feature of Odoo 14, install Inventory Module first.
