Yes, maybe this is quite a special case. I like the juice example, but you also could think of any other food processing company. Or chemical industry (gas naphta). Or metal works, which sometimes buy "heat" from neighboring plants. In some industries you can also have some kind of vendor managed inventory, where you have an actual physical stock at your site, but it is not of your concern, your concern starts after the meter only. I think in the advent of smart meters, such use cases can possibly multiply.
"Con medidor" -> Metered Buying
"Bajo Pedido" -> Make to order
Something like the annexed screenshot, however, would be cool:

I do not think it must be in the core.Exactly as you explained, from some PoV (No standard supported) you can decide control the Water consumption or not, then the configuration I proposed is only for the case where you want control water (or any consumable which may be is critical or not to your product).i.e: If you produce Juice, Water is critical, but if you produce pieces which need water to cold the machnery may be it is not.Then it is depending of the process itself and anybody can decide how manage (purchasing, mass balance, etc).I am ok, with this topic as it is now.... (but may be it is because I do not have any idea what would be the right approach).Regards.
