How to "Make to Order" from POS

Some background:

We buy beer in barrels and sell it by the glass.. I have a "Barrel of Beer" product (route: Buy) that I use to "manufacture" the product "Beer" (route: Make to Order, Manufacture). This allows me to have real stock levels of the barrels of beer.

When I sell beer through a sales order, a manufacturing order is generated and I have to run it manually. Once completed the stock level of my barrels of beer decreases accordingly. 

What I would like to do is to be  able to sell the beer through the POS and for the MO to be processed automatically. I think I need to change the way the routing is set up, but I'm a bit green on that subject, so any help would be greatly appreciated.



Also, can someone explain how I generate the MO from a POS order?

Have a look at AUTOMATED ACTIONS.  


You can create one which is triggered each time a Manufacturing Order is created to complete it automatically.

(If you create a database with demo data, you can review Set Auto Followers on leads which are urgent and come from USA


Hi Ray, thanks for the link. I will take a look, however not been a coder, I'm not sure how far I will get :) I would have thought Odoo would do this "out of the box", but I'm not going to be that lucky.
