Inventory : Procurement Methods: Replenish on Order (MTO)
This document covers the configuration and functionality of the Make to Order (MTO) procurement method for Odoo 13. This setting should pair with either Sale or Manufacturing and tells Odoo to procure the product on-demand and hold no stock.
Use Case: The MTO configuration is useful for products that are highly-customized to a customer's specifications and would be impossible to stock for that reason. Additionally, it can be used for products that are perishable and should only be purchased or manufactured as-needed.
To get started, navigate to the Inventory app.
Configure Your Product: Manufacture + MTO
From within the product template, under the Inventory tab, select Replenish on Order (MTO) and Manufacture. This tells Odoo to create a manufacturing order to fulfill the order each time it's ordered.
When you're ready, click Save.
Watch it Work
Navigate to the Sales app, then click Create. Create a quotation for the product you've configured for MTO + Manufacturing.
Next, navigate to the Manufacturing app.
Once there, go to Operations > Manufacturing Orders. Use the search field to locate your manufacturing order by its sale order ID. Here we can see that the manufacturing order was generated from the sale order we created.
Configure Your Product: Buy + MTO
From within the product template, under the Inventory tab, select Replenish on Order (MTO) and Buy. This tells Odoo to create a Purchase Order for this product each time it's ordered.
When you're ready, click SAVE.
