2. Service product

3. Consumable product

Storable product: Storable product is the product used in stock management and its replenishment is more or less automated as defined by the rules established in the system. Storable products are kept in an inventory. In storable products, you can easily manage your minimum stock level by defining reordering rules for stock in your system. So there is no chance for it to be out of stock. If you do not set the Reordering rule, Odoo ERP will show a warning message in quotation about the details of out of stock.

Odoo ERP will prevent processing delivery orders that don’t have balance in the stock and it can be processed only by force availability button in the delivery order.

Consumable products; A consumable product is a tangible product that can be handled like a storable product with the exclusion that the stock management is not taken into account by the system. Instead, it can be directly received by the customer from the distributor. Odoo presumes that the product always has sufficient stock.

Services product; It is the services that provide the company to customers. It is a non-material product. Consulting service is an example of service products.in ODOO, services are also considered as products.

Product category; By enabling the product category feature, the user can sort out the products under a specific category.

Internal reference; For displaying product information, Odoo normally utilizes the product name field and the product description. In the case of every company, there will be a company’s own coding system for their products. For applying an alternative coding or numbering system internal reference field is applicable. The internal reference field is used to enter the product code which is used as an alternative code for the product.

Barcode: In Odoo the user can add or update product quantity or other details by scanning product barcodes. This can be possible at the time of product selling and product receiving. This unique feature will bring down not only human errors but also human efforts. The barcoding is very helpful especially when handling a large number of products.
