Packaging material as a product

- 14/10/2016 16:13:17

I was wondering if there already exists something for modelling
packaging material as a product itself.

What I'm thinking of is creating the necessary packaging material as a
product itself.

This way packaging material can have a price and a stock etc.
Also complex packaging can be modelled as MRP (e.g. a cardbord box that
contains several inlet parts made from styrofoam)

Of course I could already do this using products of type 'consumable'
but I don't want this stuff to apear on normal product listings so I
would like to mark it somehow as packaging material.

Simplest way would be to mark with Bool flag or create extend the
product_template.type field.

Does anybody know of something like this existing already?
I had a look into OCA/product-attribute and several OCA/stock* repos.
I also used Odoo-CodeSearch.

What do you think about the idea? Any opinions? Anyone interested?

Thanks. Regards,
