Hi Jim,

I share the same view as Pierre that you should not be using the purchase
order for it.

Your workflow should be something like this:
1) When packages arrive, you should create a Sales Order for this. In this
case, you need to add function to allow editing the description of each
sales order line item.
2) Approval of Sales Order
3) Receive the inventory via product. OFBiz allows receiving product without
PO. You need to add function for OFBiz to support products with serialized
barcode. During goods receiving, a unique barcode is generated for each
serialised product. You will also need to make changes to ensure the
received goods is reserved to the correct sales order.
4) Packing as usual.
