Warehouse and Invoice workflow?

Hi all,

I am a newbie to OpenERP. I would like to OpenERP as warehouse and transaction management tool. The system should take care of

  • invoice
  • customer & supplier
  • stock level in warehouses and shops
  • accounting
  • stock/product movement

Therefore I created a Ubuntu VM and installed OpenERP and Warehouse module.

Earlier this week I downloaded the "Integrate your Logistic Processes with OpenERP" ebook and try to follow the steps. However the document is not updated for OpenERP 7. Therefore it is quite hard to follow.

There are several section that I can't follow

  1. I created an invoice for the customer. But the status keeps 'Open' after the invoice validation. I could only convert the invoice status to 'Paid' by reconciling by write-off. However it doesn't seems correct to me. Is there a right flow for reconciliation?
  2. Is there a standard workflow example for the following process?

    • moving stock from supplier to warehouse (including QC)
    • moving checked stock from warehouse to shop
    • generate invoice and ship goods to customer
    • view all the stock moving history
  3. Is it possible to create a customer with multiple address?

Lastly, does anyone has an updated guide?

Thank you very very much

  1. All the flow is right ... better go through the proper documentation and then decide.
  2. You have to look for doc.openerp.com.
  3. Of-course yes, you may define a customer/supplier with various address like invoicing address, shipping address and others. Better go for doc.openerp.com for more details about the OpenERP documentation.
