Hello everyone

I need to know the proper way to register movements from warehouse to a cost center (an area of a company that we want to control incomes and costs). How to manage, for example, movements of products from warehouse to the kitchen of the company itself, for consumption in the dining hall.

Another example is what take place in livestock management, in those farms there are movements from warehouse to the cost centers (an area, an animal lot), for feed consumption. How to manage those movements of products?

In Odoo warehouse we can configure different types of locations. Which location I could use? Production? This one consumes “raw material” and produces finished products. But how could I specify the different cost centers, so we can register all movements made to them.

We will install the Accounting app, but in this moment I refer to warehouse operations.

Any help, thanks in advanced.

If you do not want to involve accounting/invoicing, solution could be:

- configure warehouse to use multiple warehouses and zones (by default it uses one)

- configure additional zone as internal warehouse zone, label it for example 'cost centre 1'

- after above, you will be able to create internal stock movements between zones; whatever you would hae in wh, you will be able to move to 'cost center' defined as above.

What is important, in opposite to wh operations based on accounting, internal movements does not infolve invoicing - which usually is advantage in case as your.



PS. just I've read your post again, and not sure anymore if I tried to answer right question :) maybe try to describe example/case you have to reflect in odoo?
