For example if i'm running a company that sells cans and bottles of beer I would like to be able to sell and remove from stock down to a per can or per bottle level to allow me to provide samples to potential customers among other things. The beer is packaged into carton/cases of 24 cans or bottles each. Each of these carton cases can be further subdivided into 6 packs and then down to individual units.
How do I define a delivery of XXXX number of cases and then allow for individual units, 6-packs, and cases of 24 all while keeping a track of the inventory of a given beer down to a per can level?
I would like to be able to invoice them as pallets, cases, 6-packs or individual units, however i'm having trouble understanding how to set it up in v8.0 correctly for purchasing, sales, and warehouse management. If anyone has any insight on this or can point me in the right direction it would be very much appreciated.
Anyone had an reasonable approach for this?
The idea of defining different UoMs certainly is a possiblity, but for me, this is a bit of a pain: we are producing machinery and therefore have many different products we need to purchase (in packaging unit) and put in a BoM (in a smaller quantatiy than in the packaging unit).
But e.g. for screws, stickers, or even liquids needed (like oil) this approach would lead to an nearly endless list of UoM (e.g. Barrel201L, Barrel100L, Package100unit, Package215units, Package500units and so on...)
Any different ideas/ solutions for this?
(Except using BoMs itself e.g. ->
Thermal oil barrel 201L (as BoM) containing
201x Thermal oil (with L as UoM)
EDIT: I see what @Nicolas PIGANEAU is talking about. You have to
Configuration> Sales > Product Features > Allow using different units of measure
I'm going to see if this will allow for sinlge 6packs, 12 packs and cases...
Still not sure how you can link SKU #'s together and or price discounts.. I'm sure there's a work around... working on one.
