Odoo 9 Inventory Management

In this video we cover Inventory Management (formally Warehouse Management), one of the primary Odoo applications. If you are working with sales management, purchasing, or manufacturing you will ultimately have to also work with inventory management as well. This video covers the basic operations in inventory management: receipts, delivery orders, and handling internal transfers. Learn how to configure Odoo with multiple locations as well as multiple warehouses.

Previously called Warehouse Management in earlier versions of Odoo, Inventory Management often forms the foundation for a successful ERP system. Purchasing, Sales Management, and Manufacturing all depend on Warehouse Management to organize the inventory of products and their related transactions. In this video we cover all basic operations as well as review some of the options available for more advanced inventory configurations.


At the basic level, Odoo Inventory Management organizes products that are incoming from vendors (receipts), outgoing to customers (delivery orders), and products that must move between locations within the company (internal transfers). In addition inventory management also allows for the handling of backorders and provides the necessary inventory reports so an inventory manager can make the appropriate decisions for the business.


Often times when configuring an Odoo installation how well the inventory system is configured will have a great deal of impact on how well specific business requirements are handled. That is why in this video we use multiple examples for each of the major inventory operations and cover all the basic inventory transactions and options so that we have a firm foundation to begin exploring more advanced inventory topics in other Odoo videos.
