Odoo 10 MRP: Traceability
Traceability is a term which is used for checking the history of products and lots.In the products from view also there is a smart button of ‘Traceability’ which will always show history regarding how much products comes/goes out/inventory and all.
Lots: OpenERP online can also manage product lots.Two types of lots are defined-
Serial numbers: These are represented by a unique product or an assembly of identical products.They are usually identified by barcodes stuck on the products.The batch of products can be marked with a supplier number or your own company numbers.
Tracking numbers: These are logistical lots to identify the container for a set of products.
The double entry management in odoo ERP online enables you to run advanced traceability(upstream and downstream traceability)
Upstream Traceability: It runs from the raw materials received from the supplier and follows the chain to finished products delivered to customers.
Downstream Traceability: It follows the product in the other direction from customer to different suppliers of raw material.
We can also find this option of ‘Traceability’ in the products form view
