I have a situation where three companies need to share the same products. Each company has it's own procurement method for the product and it's own stock levels. I would like to avoid having to maintain three separate, almost identical, product lists.
For a product [A]
- Company 1 makes [A] from raw material
- Company 2 buys [A] from Company 1 and uses it in manufacture.
The product is always the 'same' product (so should have same ID) but it can be used differently in different companies.
I have looked at product_multi_company, however this seems to be only for the prices.
How do I go about configuring this?
(OE v7, Ubuntu 12.04)
Regarding stock you would just have to define a separate shop/warehouse/locations for each company This thread will help you with that:
As for separate procurement I also had this issue and managed to solve it with a simple script that I've whipped up in 5 minutes (hence it might not be that stable)
It is only partially tested on version 7, if I can help out a bit more with it please let me know
To achieve this, the trick is on the property for each company i.e on the settings>parameters>configuration parameters. For each company make sure that you have defined it Income/Expense accounts property, Receivable and Payable accounts property etc. Then on the product do not set the Income/Expense accounts. Make sure that also on the Product category you have not defined the income and expense accounts.
When you switch from company A to company B, openerp automatically selects the correct income/expense accounts using the property defined for that company. Properties are defined in the model ir.property. Remember to also define properties for ir.sequences. Hope this helps.
