Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
When the product has quantity on hand equal to zero, and customer orders this product, then, we need Odoo to generate a purchase order automatically for this product.
Odoo is not generating the automatic PO. We have Odoo 8.
As for an example, I created a test product. I ticked "Buy" check box, and unticked the"Make to order" check box. I added a vendor (has an address) on the product as follows:
Supplier: Old Stocks
Delivery Lead Time: 0
Minimal Quantity: 1.00
I also created a reordering rule for this product:
Product:  0.0.0.0 Would Our Legacy Survive?
Warehouse: Amman Stock
Minimum Quantity: 5.000
Maximum Quantity: 20.000
Quantity Multiple: 1.000
I made a purchase order for this product, and transferred the delivery order. The quantity on hand became 4 (less than the min. quantity in the reordering rule). Run the schedulers from Warehouse -> Run Schedulers. However, the RfQ was not created.
What should I do to get an RfQ auto-generated, when the there is sales order for a product with "Quantity on hand" equal to zero?
Thanks you :)
I faced the same issue as we wanted to automatically generate POs in draft. Weused the following configuration:
We set up a reordering rule with a minimum quantity of 0. This was done for every product
By doing that, when a customer orders something which exceeds available stock, your stocked amount will be less than zero, triggering the reordering rule.
- the item needs to have a defined supplier, otherwise no purchase order will be generated.
- not sure if the item needs to be stockable
- you have to execute the planner in the warehouse menu (there is a scheduler that can be activated to execute that planner every m minutes).
Maybe there is a way to do something that might apply to all products, but I do not know how to do that (it would be interesting).
Any further automation or group configuration you might achieve, please share. Having to add a restock rule for every product is cumbersome.
Hope this helps,
