INVENTORY - Odoo 17 Enterprise Book

Scrap Management

Inventory that is deemed scrap is made up of damaged or unusable goods. Products with expiration dates may also be included in scraps. There is a potential that damaged or expired goods will be discovered while maintaining the inventory. We need to get rid of these products as quickly as possible because we cannot sell damaged or outdated goods. Most of the time, products with minor damage are employed in repair procedures. The recyclable components of scraps can be utilized during recycling procedures. You can save money and, most importantly, the environment by using a smarter scrap management system. The scraper that was taken from the inventory can be taken to a site for scrap.

You can designate a spot for scrap from among the storage spaces available in the warehouse. Let's see how managing the location of scrap in your storage is made easier by Odoo17. The management and configuration of storage locations in the Odoo17 Inventory have already been covered. You can configure a location for scrap using the same procedure. You can do this by accessing the Locations menu found under the Configuration menu. The opening of a new window is depicted below.

To establish a brand-new spot for scrap, click the New button.

You can enter the location's name in the field provided in the window for creating a new place. Here, the location is referred to as Scrap Location. The remaining stages are the same as those we outlined in the prior Location configuration section. The most crucial step is to turn on the Is a Scarp Location field in order to treat this place as a scrap location. You can click the Save button once you have entered all relevant information. In the storeroom, we've finished designating a spot for scrap. By using this technique, more scrap sites can be created.

Let's now examine how to add items to the scrap location. The majority of processes in the Odoo17 inventory management system, including receipts, delivery orders, internal transfers, manufacturing orders, point-of-sale orders, and many more, give you the option to add to scrap. We took a delivery order for the demo at this point.

As seen in the screenshot above, the Scrap button is located on the delivery orders. Clicking this button will add any delivery order items that are broken or past their expiration date to the scrap pile.

The fields for the scrap product's name, quantity, package, and owner are all available here. This window will display the product's Source Location. You can choose the scrap location from the drop-down menu in the Scrap Location field if you want to move broken or expired goods there. The item will be moved to the designated scrap location when you click the Validate button. The delivery orders will be reduced by the amount of the scrap product.

You will find a separate platform to manage all of these scrap orders under the Operation menu of the Inventory module, as seen below.

On this platform, the user can access List, Kanban, Pivot, and Graphical views. The Reference, Date, Product, Quantity, Unit of Measure, Source Location, Scrap Location, Company, and Status details of the Scrap Orders are available from the List view. Using the Create button in this window, you may also create a new scrap order.
