Cost of product per warehouse

Hey guys, I have the following question. How could I structure the costs per product?

As you know If I have shops and warehouses on different cities and states, costs are not always the same. That's why I need to store costs per warehouse even for accounting entries. Actually OpenERP stores cost of products on standard price, but it doesn't work when you have different costs on each warehouse. Does someone knows a way to handle this? I thought about multi-company but this is not the case, because each shop belongs to the same company. I only want to have different costs based on warehouse.

Is there an addon that handles this?

Have you tried the FIFO (first in first out) module?


Product prices are persisted for every unit of a product based on the price paid when received.

I'll give a try to check if this is what I need. Thanks

Hello Grover,

Review this module, lp:~argilsoft/+junk/hesatec_product_cost_multicompany

It handles product cost per company, this was our approach to one project with multishops. Finally the company wants to measure performance for each shop, so we took the path using multicompany environment.


Kind Regards

Possible solutions without custom coding. 1. Create different products - one for each warehouse with cost. 2. Create attributes for the product that indicate the warehouse and add the appropriate amount to the product price.

If those don't work for you, you are going to have to do some custom coding.

Thanks for your response, but these options doesn't work for me because I do need the same products on each warehouse. I think that I've to code this but it's going to be really difficult because I need the standard price on account journals too and everyplace where standard price is called.
