Activating the Dropship Subcontractors feature will help you to dropship subcontractors with components. The Resupply Subcontractors can be used to resupply subcontractors with the components. This will help the manufacturer to supply materials to the subcontractors when required. If the company has many warehouses, you can resupply components from one to another using these features. When raw materials are in demand, you can easily resupply them in warehouses. When products are out of stock, you can manufacture them in the warehouse for resupply by activating the Manufacture Resupply option. You will get three methods to define manufacturing procedures. By selecting the Manufacture option, you can directly move the components to the production location and start the manufacturing procedures. In the Pick components and then manufacture method, you need to follow two steps. First, you have to unload the components from the stock to the input location and then move to the production location for manufacturing. After picking the components and manufacturing the products, you can store them in the warehouse using the Pick components, manufacture, and then store products option. By activating the Buy to Resupply option, Odoo allows you to buy raw materials to resupply and store them in this warehouse. Clicking on the Save button will record the details of the newly configured warehouse.
