Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:

A consumable is a physical product which is treated like a stockable product, with the exception that stock management is not taken into account by the system. You could buy it, deliver it or produce it but OpenERP will always assume that there is enough of it in stock. It never triggers a procurement exception.
The demo data show several types of products, which gives a good overview of the options.
'Consumable' products: are supposed to be always there. Examples can be staples, nuts, bolts, tape, ...
'Stockable' products: are subject to the full stock management system (minimum stock rules, automatic procurement, ...). Examples can be (depending on your industry) hard disks, assembled computers, cars, ...
Consumable products- Consumable products are physical products which are available in the system.
Stock-able products- We have to maintain stock of these products. stock-able products can be unavailable products which may be available but not registered in the system therefore they are unavailable.
