Purchasing Management

In the preceding chapters you saw how to use customer invoices and delivery notes in OpenERP. This chapter is about the management of purchases, the process ahead of these two operations. You'll now see how OpenERP handles and simplifies this and the control of purchases from suppliers.

For this chapter you should start with a fresh database that includes demonstration data, with sale and its dependencies installed (which indirectly depends on, and installs, the purchase module) and no particular chart of accounts configured.
