Table of contents


Imagine you have the following packagings:

  • Pallet: 1000 Units
  • Big box: 500 Units
  • Box: 50 Units

and you have to pick from your warehouse 2860 Units.

Then you can do:

>>> product.product_qty_by_packaging(2860)

    {"id": 1, "qty": 2, "name": "Pallet"},
    {"id": 2, "qty": 1, "name": "Big box"},
    {"id": 3, "qty": 7, "name": "Box"},
    {"id": 100, "qty": 10, "name": "Units"},

With this you can show a proper message to warehouse operators to quickly pick the quantity they need.

Optionally you can get contained packaging by passing with_contained flag:

>>> product.product_qty_by_packaging(2860, with_contained=True)

    {"id": 1, "qty": 2, "name": "Pallet", "contained": [{"id": 2, "qty": 2, "name": "Big box"}]},
    {"id": 2, "qty": 1, "name": "Big box", "contained": [{"id": 3, "qty": 10, "name": "Box"}]},
    {"id": 3, "qty": 7, "name": "Box", "contained": [{"id": 100, "qty": 50, "name": "Units"}]},
    {"id": 100, "qty": 10, "name": "Units", "contained": []},},

Known issues / Roadmap


  1. Fractional quantities (eg: 0.5 Kg) are lost when counting units
  2. Maybe rely on packaging_uom
