Unit of measure and bill of materials
We are trying to setup Odoo for a catering company. We are having a problem with units of measure. We have created items that we can sell and items that we can buy. Now we are adding Bills of material for the recipes of the items that we can sell. For example - Pancakes. The bill of material will be, flour, eggs, oil amd water...
The problem is that some recipes require that we consume certain products in a different Unit of Measure than we buy them in. For example, Oil is being bought from the supplier in Liters, however the recipe wants us to use Kilograms. The client has worked out the recipes to indicate the required quantity always in Weight, but they do not purchase many of the products in weight but rather in volume. For example when adding oil to the BoM for pancakes we need to add 460 grams of oil. However oil is purchased from the supplier in Liters
What is the right way to handle this?
