Definition

Products

A product is an object you sell to customers or it is an object you buy from suppliers. It is a physical object as opposed to Services.

A product follows this rules:

  • A product can be stocked into a warehouse (only products appears in module Stock. Services are not visible).
  • A product can be delivered (only products appears in module Shipment. Services are not visible. Services are realized but cannot be shipped).
  • A product is a material good. It's value often decreases with time (the value of a used product is less than a new product).

Some fields are dedicated to products and not available for Services like:

  • Weight
  • Size
  • Customs code = Commodity code = License code = HTS (An international 6 character code to define the category of product)

Virtual products (kits, also called Pack products)

A product or service may be a virtual (parent) product comprising other (real) products. This function is activated from the Products module or the Service configuration page. It allows "packages" or "kits" of products that for use in orders, invoices and inventory as a single element instead of the n products as Lot.

A virtual product complies with the following rules:

  • When adding a product in a document (proposals, invoice, order), only the line of the virtual parent product is shown.
  • The stock of the individual components of the virtual product is incremented / decremented when the virtual product is incremented / decremented.
  • A virtual product may itself be composed of other virtual products that contain the physical products.

Note: It is not a function of "manufacturing / production" where the virtual product component products are consumed son of stock father for an additional product in stock. Here, the sub-components produced a virtual product are decremented stock at the time of consumption of the virtual product and remain independent manner consumables byproducts other, unlike a manufacturing module, wherein when that a by-product is used to manufacture a father module, the products under the same stock is decremented if the father product is not yet distributed, and often this byproducts can no longer do the reverse way back in stock.
