you need to go through BOM. We developed long time ago for 7 a module for automatic MO validation to ease the process. Check Elico Corp repo on github

Hi all,

  In my company it is common for us to buy something by weight (per kg) and sell it by piece.
  In Odoo (v7), I cannot save the product if the unit of sale and unit of purchase do not belong to the same class. Is there a module that allows me to buy per kg and tell the system how many pieces on average there are in one kg? (or in other words, define a "conversion factor" for units not in the same class)

   Also, is it possible to have a product with different Unit or Purchase for different suppliers? So supplier 1 sells per kg but supplier 2 sells per 1000 units. If yes, what module would do that?

Best regards,
