Stock Valuation Layer Usage

Alpha License: AGPL-3 OCA/stock-logistics-workflow Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module allows to trace the usage of stock valuation layer. That is, makes it possible to identify in what stock moves was a given valuation layer used, and how much quantity was taken by the particular stock move.

This kind of traceability is important in case that at some point you want to conduct an revaluation (for example, in case that the purchase order price changes after the products have been received into stock).

Also, it changes the way the outgoing layers are created in order to respect the MTO case. When creating the out svl, Odoo takes the first layer available with value. The module stock_valuation_layer_usage arises an issue with that Odoo process. Odoo will take always the oldest svl. However, that is not the case for MTO. When there is a fixed link between the incoming move and the outgoing move, at the time of creating the outgoing svl the system should take the specific incoming svl not just the oldest one. Also, when the case is not MTO, the system should avoid using svl that are "reserved".


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
