Simpler and better alternative to the official product_expiry module

Product Expiry Simple

This module is similar to the official product_expiry module that adds support for Expiry Dates on products, but it is both simpler and better:

  • Only one Expiry Date field instead of 4 fields (End of Life Date, Best before Date, Removal Date, Alert Date)!
  • Use date field instead of datetime field for Expiry Date
  • No automatic computing of Expiry Date based on a delay configured on product because it is not used most of the time (for manufacturing companies, the rules that control expiry dates are usually more complex than that ; for reseller companies, they have to copy the expiry date written on the good when they receive it in their warehouse)
  • List views of production lots and quants have a color depending on expiry date: green if expiry date is in the future, red if it is in the past.
  • Ability to show stats about expiry dates on quants pivot table (because, with this module, the Expiry Date is a related stored field on stock.quant).

This modules keeps the main feature of the official product_expiry module: the support of FEFO (First Expiry First Out).

I decided to develop this module because, after implementing product_expiry at several companies, I noticed that I spent more time inheriting the official product_expiry module to make always the same kind of changes that re-developping a simpler and better alternative.


No configuration needed.
