Details stock picking algorithm in OpenERP

I read the algorithm used by OpenERP for deciding from which locations to pick the ordered products is: search the locations in order of localization then by name if they have the same localization.

I think localization is only about warehouses. So that would mean that within a warehouse it is always done by name.


  • Is that correct? It does not include some localization inside a warehouse? E.g. length of path to root. So if I have stock / Z-001 and stock / second floor / A-001 will stock be first taken from Z-001 (shortest route) or A-001 (alphabetical)?
  • Is it on the name of the location only or is the path to the location also included? So does it take in the case of a product on location "stock / A / Z-026" and "stock / B / A-001" first location Z-026 or location A-001?
