This training requires to already have a medium to strong knowledge of supply chain management from a business perspective and have a basic knowledge of the Odoo Inventory App. At the start of the training, a quick introductory session is going to be held in order to have all participants sharing the same understanding of the Inventory App.

Why should you attend?

Always starting from the business needs as well as the related job positions in a typical supply chain, you'll see for each topic how it actually translates in the Odoo data model structure (why this design choice has been made?), which functional configuration is the most adapted and what are the best practices for each use-case presented. We are aiming at finding the right balance between theoretical knowledge and practical skills applicable right after the training. Here is a non-exhaustive list of the topics reviewed:

  • How to structure my warehouse network?

  • How to organize the internal locations within my physical warehouse(s)?

  • What are the typical stock operations and how best to ensure a proper follow-up (e.g. inbound, internal, outbound)

  • How does the reservation mechanism work? How can you configure it further per operation, using removal strategy and packaging? How to directly manage reservations from the reception?

  • How to maintain full traceability over your stock items (e.g. unit of measures, packages, lots or serial numbers)?

  • What are the main replenishment methods (e.g. manual and automatic reordering rules, manual procurement, make-to-order, master production schedule, replenishment report) available and when to use them?

  • How to translate a push strategy versus a pull strategy within the Odoo Inventory App?

  • How to configure custom routes and put away strategies to fit your specific supply chain paths?

  • How to manage your inventory adjustment and maintain a good stock accuracy with good practices?

  • How to implement a click-free environment using the barcode app? Which hardware to choose depending on the situation? Which pre-requisites does it imply inside my physical warehouse? What are the functionalities available and how to use them best in a simple and complex inventory flow? When and how to use the barcode nomenclature? What are the functionalities available and how to use them in a simple and complex inventory flow? When and how to use the barcode nomenclature? 

  • How to play with Lead Times and best practices to use them?

These topics will be covered using Odoo version 16 which means the new functionalities will also be presented.
