What Are The New Features In Odoo 16 Inventory Module

Functional Odoo 16

Businesses now face a variety of operational challenges as a result of the fast-paced environment we live in. Also, managing the operational constraints gets harder every year. As a result, the competition intensifies with each new business. The commercial and logistics sectors have faced significant operating reductions as a result of the epidemic's restrictions.

After everything settled down, the company started operating as before.

They are all waiting for them: the harsh competition, the economic downturn, and the challenge of returning to the previous normal. As a result, the business will need specialized operational tools that can deal with any situation with ease in the event of challenges.

Odoo Inventory Management can handle a huge number of different transactions, up to several thousand operations. It enables businesses to manage their inventory of goods or assets effectively. An integrated inventory and tracking solution for warehouse management is called Odoo Inventory Management. You could be able to manage your warehouse, vendors, buy flow, etc. with the aid of the Odoo Inventory Management Module.

This popular Odoo application manages key tasks for businesses whose operations depend on successful inventory management, particularly those in retail or wholesale, manufacturing, or shipping; as a result, its importance can vary. Businesses like Retailers and Manufacturers benefit from its smart inventory features, facilitation of productive working, varied warehouse management, forecasting abilities, etc.

In order to achieve maximum performance and popularity in its field of endeavor, Odoo is using a few new features and has prioritized performance with version 16. Instead of just being an update from the previous version, the new version's main goal is to improve Odoo's performance. Odoo 16 has also added new features for managing the inventory of the company which is listed below.

Automatic Batch Transfers

Automatic Batch Transfers help to choose whether to automate the creation of batches per contact, carrier, or destination country at the level of Operation Types.

To enable batch transfer, go to the settings of the inventory module and under Operation, we can find a field to enable Batch transfer which helps to manage a batch of orders, a picker can use batch picking, which minimizes the number of times he needs to return to the same spot. In Odoo, this means you may combine multiple transfers into a single batch transfer and process it using the form view or the barcode application.

The next field is Maximum transfers per batch - here the transfers are not automatically added to batches that will exceed this number of transfers, and the next field is Maximum weight per batch - the transfers are not automatically added to batches that will exceed this weight if the transfer is added to it and the next option is Auto confirm.

Force Backorders

Allowing customers to place orders even when you don't have enough inventory on hand is known as Backordering. Backordering is used by businesses when a sudden rise in sales causes things to sell more quickly than they can be stocked. Retailers all over the world utilize it as a standard procedure when they see a rise in sales.

Odoo 16 adds a backorder option inside the Operation types which helps to choose whether or not backorders are generated automatically as shown below.

When the option is set as Always, a backorder is automatically created for the remaining products, and when the option is set as Never the remaining products are canceled.

Inventory Adjustments

Inventory adjustment is a vital feature for adding an opening stock of the company and for managing inventory in some cases the real inventory counts in the warehouse may occasionally differ from the reported inventory counts in the database for any warehouse management system. The difference between the two counts may be the result of theft, injury, human mistake, or other circumstances. In order to resolve the discrepancies and guarantee that the recorded counts in the database correspond with the actual counts in the warehouse, inventory adjustments must be done.

In Odoo 16 certain new features are added to Inventory Adjustments such as added storage categories, as well as the Last count date, and also added a filter for starred products, and a "Apply all" button on the screen's top as shown below.
