Openerp 7: picking check (before shipping)?

on 6/19/14, 7:59 AM 1,085 views

We have a webshop (magento based) with a lot of products, and we would like to reduce the number of steps before shipping an order

Our procedure before we send our shipments:

  1. Client orders in webshop
  2. We receive the order and manually print the picking report
  3. The products are picked on the given location on the picking report (loc_rack)
  4. We check all products manually by barcode (compare barcode on picking report with barcode on product)
  5. We pack the items and send the order

As you can see the steps we have to take are a lot, but we want to make sure the right product will be packed.

Is there an addon for checking the product (or product quantity) before packing? Or do any of you have an addon that could be useful with picking an order? A must have picking addon/app/script? What steps do you take before shipping an order, and what do you do to check the items before you ship?

we have similar issue, if your step 4 "4. We check all products manually by barcode (compare barcode on picking report with barcode on product)" could be automated, it would save lots of time

You can create chaining rules to add extra steps into your process if you want. Also, each step can be manual (ie the user needs to confirm) or automated (just creates a move).

A simple step might be to set your warehouse up so that picked goods (stock location) go to a QA/dispatch location. Once they are confirmed as ok to send the user completes another picking confirmation.

could the extra checking step be confirmed by a barcode scanner? so each item goes through a barcode scanner, if is not in the order, then get rejected.
