How do I enter existing stock in the warehouse module?

on 11/24/13, 11:03 AM 858 views

For a friend I want to make an inventory for products that are already in his warehouse. As the warehouse works with stock movements, I'm a bit puzzled on how to "move" products to the locations they're already in. Business is a vintage aircraft restoration company, so lot of the parts are taken from other aircraft and kept as spare parts for restoration projects. They're stored in the warehouse at a specific location.

What would be the flow that I have to follow in order to have them in the current stock?

You should do that through Warehouse > Inventory Control > Physical Inventories

Thank you Fabrice. This looks the right place indeed. There are so many options in this application!

There are only as many options as modules you install. Make sure to not install what you don't need. Many people who start with OpenERP want to install absolutely everything and then are surprised to feel overwhelmed.
