Re: how odoo handle with catch weight.by
It seems to me that saying 'how to handle catch weight' is an oversimplification of a more complex business process.
Some industries receive unclassifies material that needs to be analysed. The unit in which you receive the raw product can be different to the unit that you pay to the supplier, once the company unveils the class / quality of the product received.
You find similar processes in the waste management industry.
In my opinion you must receive in a weight unit, and then implement a manufacturing process that implements the sorting process. You then invoice to the supplier based on the information known after the sorting process, not on the basis of what you initially received.
In my opinion you would require specific developments to implement this process in Odoo.
for catch weight, quote as 'Catch Weight Many buyers are confused when they hear the expression catch weight since many ERP vendors use the expression dual units of measure. The term catch weight originates from the seafood industry when large shiploads of freshly caught fish arrived in the processing plant. The plant contracted for a large number of pounds of fish, but they never knew what combination of fish they would receive until the catch was sorted at the plant. The sort identified how many pounds of fish, by species, and that determined the pay for the fishing boat captain and crew. The original expression catch weight applied to the total weight of the catch, and has now been applied to other proteins industries such as beef, pork and poultry. In a traditional meat company, particularly on the fresh side of the business, products are tracked by actual weight throughout the entire supply chain. These products, which do not have a nominal or net unit weight, are identified as catch weight items. Throughout this document, the term “actual weight” will be used to describe the catch weight requirement. The issue of variable weights permeates the entire supply chain. Companies must have the ability to value, inquire, commit to orders, cost, receive, produce, place orders, price, ship and invoice by actual weight. The ability to handle variable weights is a fundamental requirement that must be properly and fully handled by the core transaction ERP application.'there have a similar concept in odoo is unit of sale. but it not fit the catch weight 100%. UoS have defined mes_type as variable, but not implemented yet.On Fri, Mar 13, 2015 at 2:07 PM, Rick Oliva <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:Can you not create a new unit?
