Modules:Distribution Orders/User Documentation

Bulbgraph.png   This feature is available starting from 3.0PR17Q3.

Contents

Introduction

The purpose of this new functionality is to allow to distribute products between warehouses and organizations that belong to the same legal entity.

This is done by a pair of documents: The request document (Distribution Order Receipt) and the Issue document (Distribution Order Issue). The process can be initiated from both sides. Depending on the quantities requested, confirmed and finally issued in these documents, the goods movements are generated.

There is a different documentation wiki for Distribution Orders integrated with Advanced Warehouse Operations.

Group of Inventory- and Supply Chain Management functionalities

The Distribution Orders module has been created in order to enhance Openbravo with the ability to plan, organize and execute shipments from- and to sites (shops, warehouses, outlets) that belong to the same legal entity but are in a different physical location / address.

It is an important part of a set of functionalities that all together bring first class inventory management and supply chain capabilities. The complete set is:

Functionality

In the common 'pull' flow, a Distribution Order Receipt is created. When the status changes to 'Booked', it will then automatically create a Distribution Order Issue. In a less common 'push' flow, the Distribution Order Issue is created and, when 'Booked' it will create automatically the Distribution Order Receipt.

Distribution Orders can only be created across Organizations that belong to the same Legal Entity.

This document is the request, where the organization requests the products to another organization, in the header the user must select the warehouse to which the products are requested and the warehouse where they will be received. In the lines the user has to select the product to request and the quantity needed.

The initial state of the document is Draft. When booking the document, the process will be responsible for creating the document Distribution Order Issue, creating a copy of this document for the organization that will deliver the products.

Once created, the Distribution Order Issue is associated with the document in the Referenced Distribution Order Issue field.

Document created by a Distribution Order Issue

If this document is created by Distribution Order Issue, the header and lines can not be updated. The status of the document will be Confirmed and associated with the source document.

Distribution Order Issue

Fields to notice:

In the Document Header:

In the Document Lines:

Create a new Distribution Order Issue

This document is the planning of the stock that is going to be issued. Just like the Receipt Distribution Order, the user must select the warehouse from which the products will be obtained as well as the warehouse where they will be received. In the lines the user has to specify the product to be supplied, the quantity and the alternate UOM, if applicable.

The document is created in a Draft state. The booking process will be responsible for creating the Distribution Order Receipt document, creating a copy of this document for the organization that will receive the products.


Document created by a Distribution Order Receipt

If this document was generated from a Distribution Order Receipt, only the field Scheduled Delivery Date can be modified in the header and the field Confirmed Quantity in the lines. By setting the quantity of the product to be sent to the warehouse this will update the related Distribution Order Receipt. This quantity must be greater than 0.

The Confirm process updates the line quantities of the Distribution Order Receipt document according to the confirmed quantities.

Issue Distribution Order

Fields to notice:

In the Document Header:

In the Document Lines:

The Issue Distribution Order is the goods movement that is responsible for moving the products to a transit bin, the products are obtained from a Distribution Order Issue, which must be in a confirmed state. It only takes into account the quantity Confirmed selected in the Distribution order field. The user must also select the bin to where the products will be moved (In transit bin).

The Generate Issue button is responsible for obtaining the products that are present in the Distribution Order Issue and adding them to the movement, as well as looking for the bin where there is stock for them. The process is also responsible for updating the quantities and issue status in the related Distribution Order Issue and Receipt.

It is also possible to create an Issue Distribution Order Line manually, but this line must be related always to a Distribution Order Issue Line that has confirmed quantity for the same Product as the created line. Also, the New Storage Bin must be the same as the In Transit Bin of the Header and the Storage Bin must be one that has stock for the selected Product.

The user must also select the bin to where the products arrive. The process also updates the information in the associated Distribution Order Receipt and Issue documents.
