Projects:Goods Movement Report/Specifications
This document is to form the functional specification for the redesigned Goods Movement Report to be implemented in Openbravo ERP. The requirement to rewrite this report has come about as the current report does not truly reflect the purpose for the report, originally based on a custom project request the report is heavily dependent on the Project field in the header.
The Goods Movement Report should show the user a print out of the details contained within a Goods Movement Report. The print out will be fired from the print icon in the toolbar.
This information contained within the report should be sufficient for a user to locate and the product and quantity and physically move it to the new location.
Openbravo ERP issue number 243
The report will be generated within the existing Openbravo ERP framework using iReport and WAD.
The report will be implemented inside the existing Openbravo framework, and will be run via the 'Print' icon in the Goods Movement window.
Product - an inventory item as defined within the Openbravo ERP application. Warehouse - a physical space as defined within OpenbravO ERP. Storage Bin - a physical location within a warehouse. Movement Date - a date on which the movement will be performed.
User roles & profiles
Warehouse Manager - this user will be responsible for the creation and processing of a goods movement.
Storeperson - this role is responsible for realizing the movement request based on the information in the printed Goods Movement
Business process definition
BP1. Goods Movement Transaction Creation
The user of this report will navigate to Warehouse Management -> Transactions -> Goods Movement to open the window. From here the user will complete the information in the Header tab and subsequent lines for the Header. When this information is saved the user will click the Print icon to generate a printed representation of the transaction.
BP2. Goods Movement Report Realization
Based on the information presented in the Goods Movement Report the storeperson will relocate the itemized products and quantities from/to the relevant locations within warehouses. To fulfill this process the storeperson will require the following information:
- Current Storage Bin
- Unit of Measure
- New Storage Bin
BP3. Process Goods Movement
Following the completion of the physical movement of goods the goods movement transaction should be finalized and processed to update the system. This will involve updating the lines in the Goods Movement with the actual physical movement details. The user will click process movement to finalize the update.
The following table shows a break down of the user stories identified to complete the functional specification within this document.

Functional requirements based on business processes
User Interface Mockups
The current user interface as it exists in version 2.40 of Openbravo ERP is sufficient for this function. The only addition will be the inclusion of a print icon in the toolbar for a Goods Movement that has been successfully created and saved.

Open Discussion Items
- What is the status of automated warehouse practices these days and in amongst users of the application? When I was working in a warehouse, 10 years ago, we were using bar code scanners to record information on what product was going where. i.e. When an order was being picked the store person would scan the barcode on the printout, then scan the bar code on the storage bin, and then scan the bar code on the product. In this way the record of what was being moved around was automatically worked out and recorded.
- This can be added at a later stage by customising the application and code to include a bar code for the product.
