I've setup OpenERP 7 for a small coffee shop. The POS is working fine, but I need a way to track the inventory.
Inventory tracking through receiving and selling products seems rather straight forward, but there is one problem that I can't seem to get a handle on.
One significant factor affecting the inventory is food that is discarded because or age, spoilage, contamination, etc. What is the best way to input and account for this in OpenERP?
You can do this when receiving, when delivering, when manufacturing, and via an Internal Move when you need to do it not related to one of the previous events.
Make sure Manage multiple locations and warehouses is checked via
Settings -> Configuration -> Warehouse
under the Location & Warehouse section.
When you scrap products, they are transferred to the Scrap location. You have two ways to review the quantity of items scrapped.
1) For all products, go to
Warehouse -> Inventory Control â> Location Structure
Then select Vitrual Locations from the dropdown, click Scrapped, choose either Current or Period and click View Product Inventory.
2) For an individual product, open the Product and from the More menu, select Stock by Location.
