What is Catch Weight?
Catch Weight is a food industry term that means “approximate weight”. Because unprocessed food products (particularly meats) naturally vary in size and weight from piece to piece, most food sold by the case is sold by catch weight.
Catch weight products use two units of measure – an inventory unit and a catch weight unit. The inventory unit is the unit of measure in which the product is weighed and invoiced. The catch weight unit is the unit in which the inventory is sold and shipped.
How to manage catch weight in Odoo?
We have developed a module to manage the catch weight in odoo. This module helps to input the catch weight in Quotation, Sales Order, RFQ, Purchase Order, Invoices and Delivery Order etc. So in product master form, user have option to configure separate UOM for catch weight. And also user can configure whether the sales price or cost price is based on inventory UOM or catch weight UOM. Hence based on this, quotation, sales order, purchase order and invoices will calculate the amount.
