Hibou Odoo Suite: Inventory Modules: Product Catch Weight
This documentation outlines the processes of using Hibou's Product Catch Weight module for Odoo 12. This module allows you to account for differences in ordered weight vs. expected weight, which is quite common in the food industry.
First things first, let's install the module! To do so, navigate to the Apps application.
Once there, remove the "Apps" filter and search for "Product Catch Weight". When you're ready, click install.
To get started, navigate to the Inventory application.
Configuration for Catch Weight
Once there, select Configuration followed by Settings.
Under the Products section, select the option for Units of Measure. In the Traceability section, select the option for Lots & Serial Numbers. When ready, click Save .
Configuring a Product to use Catch Weight
Next, go to Master Data > products. Select an existing product and edit, or configure a new product by clicking Create.
Under the Inventory tab, in the Traceability section, select 'By Unique Serial Number' for Tracking.
Under the General Information tab, you will see a new Catch Weight UOM drop-down. Select the UoM for the catch weight of this product (i.e. the UoM you'll be selling by). The Catch Weight UoM must be in the same UoM category as the Unit of Measure and Purchase Unit of Measure. To create a new UoM, see the 'Good to Know' section below.
When you're ready, click Save.
Good to Know!
Creating a Unit of Measure
To add a new unit of measure, while in the Inventory app, select CONFIGURATION > Units of Measure > UOM . Here you will find a list of all Units of Measure. Click CREATE . Fill in the following fields:
Unit of Measure: The name of the unit of measure.
Category: The category of the unit of measure (weight, unit, volume, etc.).
Bigger than the reference Unit of Measure: Your new Unit of Measure is larger than the reference Unit of Measure. For example, we have a 50lb case. The reference unit of measure is kilograms. So for Bigger Ratio we enter the 22.67969 (kilograms), which is 50lbs.
Reference unit for this measure category: Your new UoM is equal to the reference Unit or Measure.
Smaller than the reference Unit of Measure: Your new Unit of Measure is smaller than the reference Unit of Measure. For Ratio enter the ratio of the reference unit of measure.
Active: Leave checked to keep the Unit of Measure you are creating enabled.
Rounding Precision: The computed quantity will be a multiple of this value. Use 1.0 for a Unit of Measure that cannot be split.
When you're ready, click Save.
