Stock Cycle Count

This module provides the capability to execute a cycle count strategy in a warehouse through different rules defined by the user. Cycle count is an alternative to full wall-to-wall physical inventories in which little portions (stock locations) of the stock are selected to count on a regular basis.

The system propose locations in which to perform a inventory adjustment every day based on a set of rules defined for the warehouse. In addition the system can propose Zero-Confirmations which are simple and opportunistic counts to check whether a locations has actually became empty or not.

With this strategy it is possible to:

  • Remove the need to perform full physical inventories and to stop the production in the warehouse.

  • Measure the accuracy of the inventory records and improve it.

  • Correct inventory errors earlier and prevent them to become bigger.


To install this module, you need to:

  • Download this module to your addons path.

  • Install the module in your database.


It is highly recommended to use this module in conjunction with:

  • stock_inventory_verification_request: Adds the capability to request Slot Verifications.

  • stock_inventory_lockdown: Lock down locations during inventories.


You can configure the rules to compute the cycle count, acting as follow:

  1. Go to Inventory > Configuration > Cycle Count Rules.

  2. Create as much cycle count rules as you want.

  3. Assign the rules to the Warehouse or zones where you want to apply the rules in.

  4. Go to Inventory > Configuration > Warehouse Management > Warehouses and set a Cycle Count Planning Horizon for each warehouse.


Once you have some rules configured for your warehouses, you can proceed as is described below.

  1. Go to “Inventory > Configuration > Warehouse Management > Warehouses”.

  2. Select all the warehouses you want to compute the rules in.

  3. Click on “Action” and then in “Compute Cycle Count Rules”. (note: A cron job will do this for every warehouse daily.)

  4. Go to “Inventory Control > Cycle Counts”.

  5. Select a planned Cycle Count and confirm it, this will create a draft Inventory Adjustment.

  6. In the right top corner of the form view you can access to the generated Inventory Adjustment.

  7. Proceed with the Inventory Adjustment as usual.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • Assess the possibility to refactor action_compute_cycle_count_rules method converting some of the searches to actual fields. E.g. inventory_history_ids for all the inventories done in a location.
