Effectively manage inventory of composed products.
The ProductMixer module effectively manage stock of composed products. Introduce “Mix” of complex products. Its main interest is to allow updating product inventory according to the quantities of “real” products actually in stock.
- Automatic update inventory of composed products.
- Advanced inventory management of complex products.
- Segregate real and virtual products.
- Compatible with the latest versions of Dolibarr(3.x.x).
What’s a Mixed Product??
A mixed product, or “composed” within the meaning of Dolibarr is a virtual product that included various byproducts, virtual or real.
Example: I sell colorful balloons, single or by batch, with different quanity for each color. By creating a product for each lot “lot of balls” in Dolibarr, I could assign specific characteristics (price, description, etc. ..), which is very convenient. Once the batch created, we associate the respective amount of by-products (balloons) that compose it. The product “balls kit” is then a virtual product while balloons are real products.
Issues with Dolibarr
Currently, Dolibarr does not know how to manage stocks virtual products. It impacting stocks of byproducts when movement is performed on the product. Conversely, if a movement is carried out a by-product, inventory of “parent” products remains unchanged, which creates errors stock.
What the module does??
After stock movement, the module go to both charge the stock changes by-products but also to update the inventory of all virtual products that uses this product. To do so, a specific algorithm has been developed to recalculate the stock of a virtual product, whatever its complexity, based solely on the stocks of real products.
Segregate real and virtual products
Improved warehouses management! At every stock movement, theProductMixer module isolate virtual products in a specific warehouse. Thus, the market value of your stocks no longer include virtual products.
Distribute quantities according to products availability
To avoid seeing negative product stock in a warehouse, it is possible to decreases inventory to other warehouses where product is available. Thus, if the needed amount is not fully available in a warehouse, the module will look for these quantities in others.
Complex products management
Thanks to these new features, it is now possible to use Dolibarr for management of products with complex structure, with multiple levels of by-products, regardless of their structure.
