Just an example to illustrate my question:
I found stock journal entries which debit and credit were equal to zero!
I took me some research to find out that the cause relied on cost price of products which were not set; -which is unexpected and surprising because those article were received from suppliers through a purchase order then a reception and finally a a supplier invoice where the purchasing cost was present. Still not solved this issue!
Numerous other erroneous situations can be generated by the ERP "engine" just because a value for a field is not set at the creation time; and this will remain unnoticed until you make a search.
Now the question: is there any third-party module available to audit all these data which are necessary for a module or an action to perform as expected?
The Odoo so called "audit module" is only a module which logs various users' actions; what we need is auditing user's "non-action".
Settings->Technical->Actions->Automated Actions or Settings->Technical->Actions->Scheduled Actions I suspect is what you are looking for. How to create the action you desire would require more research. Odoo/OpenERP is not fully comprehensive by default and is part of the reason why they encourage you to use a trained integrator. A little searching through the documents should give you what you want to create an automated action every day that pops up a screen and demands sane input values for product cost.
The simplest way is a note to the user via:
Did you set Settings->Configuration->Purchases: Alerts by products or supplier
Then in your product: Edit -> Warnings Tab: Purchase Order Line -> Warning Message: Something like: Cost Price is Required
Something more complex would require a module I suspect.
Edit: Corrected to Purchase Order Line
