Product master data window is the place where you can easily organize and centralize the key data of the items of any type you might manage as part of the organization processes and/or activities.

Organizations deal with a variety of different items may be required by an organization for the performance of its daily activities.

It is possible to load Product information into Openbravo en masse using the Import Data module, or one by one using the Product window.

This section describes how to set up Products individually.


Product window allows the creation of items such as products, raw materials, resources, services, etc.

The information required to create a Product in Openbravo is determined by the nature of the Product, its Product Type.

There are four product types available:

  • Item. The most frequently used product type is "Item". Inventory held for resale, materials that are placed into a production process, and semi-finished or finished goods created through production are examples of products defined using the product type "Item".
  • An item should be flagged as "Stocked", if quantity tracking is required for the item, otherwise there is no need to flag the item as "Stocked".
  • An item should be flagged as "Production" , if the item is used in manufacturing.
  • If an item is an intermediate or finished good, its bill of material (BOM) should be detailed on the Bill of Materials tab.
  • Service. This product type is used to identify such provisions as professional services, transportation, telephony, and other items which do not correspond with material goods.
  • Therefore, a Service is not stockable but can be purchased or sold.
  • As service can have a bill of materials to be defined in the Bill of Materials tab.
  • Resource and Expense. These product types can be used to distinguish between different types of products which can be purchased or sold but cannot be stocked.
  • Resource type can be used to configure resources such as Financial, Legal or Natural resources used by the organization.
  • Expense type can be used to configure expenses such as travel expenses to be used while reporting Employee expenses.
