I sell two metal boxes. I apply black or red paint based upon client selection. They can also choose to have a handle or not.
Say I have the following order for one client:
- 1 black box with no handle
- 1 red box with handle
This is of course a simplified example of what I need. The combination of finish products I sell is much greater.
I had the box, the colour and the accessory (handle) setup as three different products, which gives me the following sale order lines in my sale order:
- 2 Metal Box
- 1 Colour Red
- 1 Colour Black
- 1 Handle
When creating the sale order and also trying to create a reference code naming convention, I realized the client could end up with the handle on the wrong box.
I started looking at the BoM, but unsure that it could answer the need. Still I have a created a Bill of Materials, but haven't gone through the whole process and not clear how this would answer what I need.
What is the best way to set this up in OpenERP without having to create a product for every single combination?
you could use variants but all this does is create product.product records for each combination. As a first course of action have a look at configurator modules in apps.openerp.com as there might be something there that helps.
Another option would be to add attribute fields to SO line (e.g. colour, handle) - then you sell a box and let the paperwork (picking list) tell your staff what colour / handle.
