Re: MRP BoM "upgrade products" - negative BoM line quantityby
It's not a correction of the order, but it's like selection an "option". So it's the same kit, but with another upgraded machine on top. This is how orders are done in their world, it seems.

Maybe I am missing something. But if a customer ordered a wrong product, kit or not, why not just credit the sales order and create a new one for the right ACME 2000 XL kit?
Negative amounts in a BoM seems to me a recipe for disaster.

Hi all I have the following use case: - Our client sells products as a "Kit", eg. "ACME 1000 kit". This is a product in Odoo with BoM of the actual "ACME 1000" device, together with some supporting items eg. ACME kit installation manual, ACME kit spare parts, ACME kit installation at customer site. On fulfilment of the sale order all these products are sent out together. - Their client calls and doesnt want the ACME 1000, but the ACME 2000 XL, but with the same supporting items. They order as a purchase order with two lines: "ACME 1000 kit", "Upgrade to ACME 2000 XL". Now that second product "Upgrade to ACME 2000 XL" should contain a BoM of "+1 ACME 2000 XL, -1 ACME 1000", so that the net result is that the kit is the same, but with one machine swapped for the upgraded one. However I cannot define negative amount on a BoM line. Does anyone know of a way / a module that is able to configure this? Tom PS. They want it this way so that the sale order lines and invoice lines match the customer's purchase order.
