How to configure Lots & Serial Number in Odoo 14 Inventory module?

Lot and serial numbers are key elements that are mostly used to track the products and product movement. This will help to track the product movement within the warehouse and outside the warehouse.

What is a lot? Lot is the unique identification number that is used to identify a group of products of the same type.  Usually, we use a lot of numbers when the products are small or cannot be considered individual products. Lots are picked as batches.

On the other hand, all items which can be identified as individual products or items will be assigned serial numbers. Here the unique identification number is assigned to each and every product.

When we discuss in detail, we can say that a lot contains a number of units of a single product. It can also be considered as a batch of products. The batch identification number or Lot can be used to manage sales operation, shipment, and other activities in a business.

Lot and serial number management are important when it comes to a business as it ensures our support to track the product. Increased traceability is the highlight of a lot of serial number management.

Lot and serial numbers are usually set and managed in the inventory of the product. When we manage a product in inventory we can add a lot and serial number so that the product can be traced thereafter. The inventory management tools usually support this lot and the serial number management support system. 

Odoo Inventory is a module that is capable of managing all inventory-related operations is best suited for Lot and serial number management also. We can create a unique identification number for an individual product with the help of a serial number and a unique identification number for a group of products using Lot management support. Odoo supports the users to manage a lot and serial numbers for different operations.

In short, a lot number is used to transact bulk quantities of products. This helps to transact the product, track the product and generate reports. Serial number on the other hand smoothens the transaction, reporting, and tracking of individual products. We can detect the damaged product and ease the return activity also with Lot and serial number.
