Variables in BOM

on 10/26/14, 6:48 AM 762 views


Hello Everybody,

At the moment I am investigating the possibility of implementing OpenERP into our current business. But I got a question, hopefully any of you can help me out.

The Case:

We are selling ropes with different 'Colors' and different 'Breaking strengths'. Customers order these ropes in variable 'lengths'. The raw material is stocked in bulk boxes.


CustomerA orders 10pcs of 1,2mtr rope with a breaking strength of 10kg in the color red.  

A sales order is created, the selected product could be "rope 10kg" extra properties of this product are "length = 1,2mtr", "color = red" 


Is there a possibility to have a BOM created that works with multiple variables and contains 10x 1,2 mtr "red, 10kg" rope. Without having all products generated on forehand. 


Thanks in advance,



Short answer is yes, and that would relate to sale properties and or attributes... There isn't an easy solution yet, so u might have to get dirty in code or get help.
