We are a drug wholesaler. We need to track lot numbers and expiration dates in our inventory. We also need to maintain a system to ensure first-expiry/first-out (FEFO) stock rotation.

I am using the odoo online v.10 and need to include the different expiration dates for each lot number in the same product.  If you track the inventory by Unique Serial Number or by Lots numbers there is no way to include the expiration date when receiving the merchandise. ¿Any help?

Step 1: You have to enable them first
     Go to 'Inventory' >Configuration >Settings > Under 'Traceability' > Select 'Track lots or serial numbers' in 'Lots and Serial Numbers'
     This will enable another option below called 'Expiration Dates' . Select 'Define Expiration Date on serial numbers'
Step 2: Configure your product  
     Under 'Inventory' tab  

         Product Life Time:  

         Product Use Time:  

         Product Removal Time: 

         Product Alert Time:

     provide values for these fields.

Step 3: If you have done step 1 & 2 Successfully
     when you try to validate an incoming shipment you will get a warning

        "Some products require lots/serial numbers, so you need to specify those first! "

     You can give a lot/serial number by clicking the button "Lot Split" (marked on the image)



You can see these Lot/Serial Numbers under  Inventory> Inventory Control> Lot/Serial Numbers
