Subject Re: Buying large amounts, selling smaller ones
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2019 13:29:45 GMT
Hallo Frank,

Order registration regarding the purchase and sale of bulk goods is as easy
as pie with OFBiz. And FIFO is a key feature regarding cost calculation.
Even buying in bulk (like your sand example) and selling in small packages
is catered for. This latter aspect is handled through the manufacturing
component, where production runs will be created (based on orders regarding
the 'small package' product).

Best regards,

Pierre Smits
