Stock Storage Type Buffers

Alpha License: AGPL-3 OCA/wms Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runboat

This is an extensions for putaway with storage types (provided by stock_storage_type).

In a warehouse, some areas where goods are put cannot be accessed directly and need to be moved to a buffer first (for instance, because they need a special machine to move from the buffer to the bins).

In this situation, when we have several buffers each serving several bays, e.g. 10 buffers in front of 10 alleys, we want to avoid putting everything in the alley 1 if anyway the buffer is full.

This module allows to define buffers in front of a set of locations. When a buffer contains something or has move lines that reaches it, all the locations are removed from the put-away computation.

This is specially useful when used with stock_dynamic_routing with a configuration that adds an additional move going through the buffer when we have to reach these areas.


This is an alpha version, the data model and design can change at any time without warning. Only for development or testing purpose, do not use in production. More details on development status
