Deactivate backorder generation

Asked by Samuel Feterman on 2013-08-16

We need to ship only what´s in stock, meaning that if a customer orders 25 units of product A and we have only 10 in stock, we deliver those 10 units and finish the transaction, without generating a backorder.

Is it possible to accomplish this modifying workflows or we have to develop a module extension?

Thanks

Samuel,

This is an interesting business model.

You have to stop procurement creation and handle Real stock quantity on delivery.

Module extension is the way to go.

Thanks.

Can you please send a quotation for this extension?

Thanks

I think correct business model should be:

- you send the 10 you have in stock
- and generate a backorder of 15 for those missing.

The second stage can be handle by a condition on sale_order (eg. order missing product yes/no ?)

What do you think ?

Samuel,

Nicolas is saying right.

But nevertheless, your business model is yours and OpenERP is flexible enough to get this right.

I will contact you personally for cleaner explanation.

Thanks.

Thank you Nicolas for the suggestion, but in this specific case we do not work with backorders at all.

We ship what´s in stock and just keep a historical data on partial sale orders for statistical pourposes.

The ideal would be a configuration parameter on Settings > Sales that allows to choose if the backorder functionality is used or not.

Thanks again !

I believe this is not so general practice in business.

But as I said, any software should be flexible enough to adjust to your needs, OpenERP is of that kind.

I've sent you an email from LP.

Thanks.

Samuel,

Please close this as solved if done.

Thanks.
