Inventory - Odoo 15 Community Book

Routes and Rules

The movement of the stocks in the warehouse will be decided by the routes of operation applied to them. The routes of operations are created based on the rules applied to the product movement. You can predefine the routes and rules for the product movement before processing the operation or create new routes and rules at the time of operation. The push and pull rules will be used to create the routes of operations within a company.
