Hi Gurus, 

our company sells clothes. We wholesale the clothes by box or dozen, a dozen normally has different sizes but one color, and a box has many dozens of different colors. I have created a product (Say Product1) with size and color as variant. Now I wonder if I can create 2 new products, 1st is "Dozen of Product1" which includes 12 of Product1 of different sizes, and 2nd is "Box of Product1" with many of "Dozen of Product1". We are only reseller, not manufacturer. Do we still need use BOM? 

Also, we may need to open a box and sell them to different customers if needed. so that is, we receive our mechandise in boxes, then sale them in boxes or sale them in dozens, how do we handle these in Odoo?

I think you can handle that with the BoM function afterall you are packing/assembling into a Dozen. Create the individual products 1, 2,3..with the color and sizes. Then create the BOM. Manufacturing order will allow you pack the boxes and store them as complete dozens in the warehouse. This way you can monitor the individual products themselves and dozen packs as well.

Hi Ochora, 

Thank you for your promopt and accurate answer, tried to vote for your answer but I don't have enough Karma.

I also figured out the answer for my second question. It can be done by install the mrp_byproducts module. Then you can defind "Dozen of Product1" as component, Product1(small size) as the produced product, and Product1(other sizes) as byproducts. By doing this you actually disassemble the package.
