Calculate product weight based on UoM
This module allows to use the unit of measure as a reference for the product weight. So a product with a UoM of Kg will have a weight of 1.0 Kg. and a product with a UoM of grams will have a weight of 0.001 Kg.
It still allows to adjust the total weight manually with an extra field.
Table of contents
Although it’s not a direct dependency of this module you will need to have Sale Management or Inventory installed in order to use Units of Measure.
To configure this module, you need to:
Go to Inventory > Configuration > Settings.
In the Product section set Units of Measure on.
The decimal precission of the weight field is set to 2 digits by default so if you need more decimals (i.e.: grams are 0,001 Kg and would be rounded to 0.00!) you need to:
Go to Settings > Technical > Database Structure > Decimal Accuracy
Edit Stock Weight and set Digits to your needs.
Go to a product and change its UoM to any in the Weight category.
Go to the Inventory tab and you’ll see the weight has changed to the proper conversion.
Additionaly you can set an additional weight that will sum to the calculated one.
Known issues / Roadmap
There’s an incompatibility with the module delivery because of the way this one computes the stock.quant.package and stock.picking weight based on unit conversion multiplied by product weight.
E. g.: A product with a UoM of Tons will have a weight of 1000 Kg. delivery computes it this way for every quant package or picking line:
Converts the product Uom (Tons) to the line Uom (e.g.: Kg.) = 1000
Multiplies it by the line quantity (e.g.: 5) = 5000
Then multiplies it by the product weight = 50000
This would be a correct compute if the UoM wouldn’t be a weight measure itself.
