I forgot to mention, we are using a odoo v9 out of the box.
So as for the merging POs, this seems to be different from v8, but no documentation on how

Hi all,
I have some questions about the implementation of the manufactoring and the purchases modules .
Would like to know how you guy are dealing with certain situations and the implementation of that withing odoo.

Our current (non-odoo) process/situation is that a work order is generated when a sale is closed.
This work order contains ALL the items that need to be manufactored.
- Within odoo this generates a bunch of work orders, one for each type of item.

Since we can have a quite extensive list of various items for a customer/project 30-40 different workorders looks a bit overwhelming. (or is this normal?)

A similar situation with the purchases,
We dont dispatch purchase orders every day to providers but we like to collect a reasonable amount before ordering (for reduced transportation costs) or simply because we only place orders on a fixed day of the week.

So after a bunch of sales orders there can be quite some pending purchase orders (20+) for a single provider. 
Is there a way to combine them all to a single PO? 

like to know how you guys are handling these situations
