I have been following the progress of the Merpati app for about a year now, and I think it is a phenomenal rendition of odoo in a mobile environment. I am very interested to learn more about this warehouse management app you are talking about, but in the meantime I will read up on that blog link you sent me and hope to find a solution to my need. Please keep me updated as to the progress and release date information for the warehouse management mobile app you speak about. Thank you

Checkout mERP application that we have created. It allows you to attach barcode scanner to any field

Plus,  we are now working (70%) finished on specialize app based on mERP just for warehouse for scanning a lot of barcodes (locations, Products and etc.)

Let me know if you need more info.

I noticed that a few Odoo Android apps that do almost exactly what I require.

however the ability to scan a lot barcode rather than a product barcode is not available from what I have found.

I think a mobile app is most likely the way to go. Bow to figure out how to utilize the Lot barcode rather then the product barcode.

All, I am trying to determine the best way to automate stock moves of product around my warehouse. My idea goes as follows:

I would have like for the warehouse operators to be able to select a product lot by scaning a LOT barcode,

The user would then be prompted to enter the product quantity they would like to move  >  then they would have to scan a LOCATION barcode (source)

Finally once they have moved their product to a new location within the warehouse, they would scan the destination LOCATION barcode (destination).

Now the tricky part here is that I would like to be able to do this with fixed barcode scanners mounted on pallet jacks (machines that operators use to move pallets around), so that the operators will not have to get on and off the pallet jacks each time they move product.

I have all of the bar coding, however I need the ability to map certain hardware devices (barcode scanners) to particular functions (stock move) within Odoo. If possible I would like to avoid these operators having to interact with the odoo interface in order to make these types of transactions

If anybody has any experience with this sort of thing please let me know I would be very interested in how you accomplished the goal.

Thank you in advanced.
