This module introduces two new models in order to manage stock moves with packages according to the packaging and stock location properties.

  • Stock package storage type (

    This model is linked to product.packaging and defines the type of storage related to a specific packaging.

  • Stock location storage type (

    This models is linked to stock.location and defines the types of storage that are allowed for a specific location.

Therefore a Stock location storage type can include different Stock package storage type in order to validate the destination of a move with package into a stock location. Moreover Stock location storage type can include product, size or lot restrictions for the stock locations it's defined on, so that a move with package will only be allowed if it doesn't violate the restrictions defined (cf stock_location_storage_type_strategy).

Moreover, this module implements "storage type put-away strategy" in order to compute a put-away location using storage types.

The standard put-away strategy is applied before the storage type put-away strategy as the former relies on product or product category and the latter relies on stock packages.

In other words, when a move is assigned, Odoo standard put-away strategy will be applied to compute a new destination on the stock move lines, according to the product. After this first "put-away computation", the "storage type" put-away strategy is applied, if the reserved quant is linked to a package defining a package storage type.

Storage locations linked to the package storage are processed sequentially, if said storage location is a child of the move line's destination location (i.e either the put-away location or the move's destination location). For each location, their packs storage strategy is applied as well as the restrictions defined on the stock location storage types. If no suitable location is found, the next location in the sequence will be searched and so on.

For the packs putaway strategy "none", the location is considered as is. For the "ordered children" strategy, children locations are sorted by first by max height which is a physical constraint to respect, then pack putaway sequence which allow to favor for example some level or corridor, and finally by name.

Known issues / Roadmap

Currently, the module supports only strategies applied on packages (stock.quant.package). For implementations that do not use packages, it would be possible to add compatibility with product packaging.

The information needed from a package are:

  • the storage type, to know which strategy is applied
  • the dimensions and weight, to apply constraints

If we want to support product packaging, we would need to:

  • guess the product packaging of a move line based on the product and quantities (multiple of a packaging quantity, for instance 8000 would be a pallet if the pallet has 2000 units, 1900 would be Box if the Box has 100 units)
  • from the product packaging, we know the storage type and dimensions

Everywhere the module is using package_id, we would have to check this:

  • use the package if a package is set
  • else, use the computed packaging

About Unit of Measures:

In v13, there is an assumption of height to be expressed in mm and weight in kg. In v14, packaging can be expressed in differents units. Explicit fields are introduced like max_weight_in_kg in order make simple and efficient computations.
