Odoo 14 Community Edition

Rules and Routes

The Odoo Inventory module provides you the provision to create various rules and routes to handle the inventory of an organization. This customizable feature allows you to configure the product movements of the platform based on the routes of operations that have been specified. These rules and routes can be defined at the beginning of the operation or they can be created and added during the process of operation. In the Odoo platform, these product movements which are configured based on the routings are strictly controlled and monitored until the user defines any changes.

The routes are created based on the rule of product movement defined. The push and pull rules are used to create the routes of product movement inside a company. The push and pull rule mentioned for each route and the locations of the product movements would add up to the efficient product movement and removal in the company inventory.

For configuring the routes in the Odoo platform, initially, you should activate the multi-step routes option from the settings menu of the Odoo platform.
