Business Requirement Deliverable


This module is part of a set of modules (`Business Requirements <>`_)

Two new concepts complement the main business requirements model:

* Deliverable lines
* Resource lines

A field for pricelist estimation is available in the partner to be used in Deliverable
and Resources lines valuation to customers.

What is a Deliverable Line?

Deliverable Lines (DL) contains products and services that will be delivered to the
customer. They are **customer oriented** and can be either physical or service products:

* Servers and procured goods
* Gap analysis services
* Module development services
* Training etc.

These are the products that will appear in the SO and that the customer/stakeholder will receive.

What are Resources Lines?

Resources Lines (RL) are the different tasks or procurements needed to achieve one deliverable:

* Service tasks (Development, consultant etc.)
* Procurement of other physical goods (server, etc.)
* Procurement of other virtual goods (templates, sub-contracting, etc.)

RL depends on the DL or directly on BR

What is the difference between Deliverable and Resources?

=========== ======================================================== ========================================================
Concept Deliverables are: Resources are:
=========== ======================================================== ========================================================
Target Provided to the customer (“Functioning Website”) Executed internally (“Server+CSS modifications”)
Valuation Valued at Customer Sales Price Valued at Cost Price
Usage Used in Sales Quotations Used in Project management or procurement management
=========== ======================================================== ========================================================

Business Requirement contains Deliverable lines and Deliverable line contains Resource lines. Example of a structure:


|- DL1
| |
| |- RL1
| |- RL2
| `- RL3
|- DL2
| |
| |- RL4
| |- RL5
| `- RL6
|- DL3
| |
| |- RL7
| `- RL8
|- DL4
| `- RL9


No specific steps required



Estimation Pricelist: user can see the Sales price and revenue of the BR.

Master project

You can define a master project linked to the business requirement. Default Customer
from the project will be used to populate the BR. The customer can be changed if necessary.

Valuation of the Deliverable and Resources lines
When writing a BR the user has the possibility to add Deliverable and Resources lines.
To value the Deliverable lines, you can specify an estimation price list in the customer,
which will be used in 2 main places:

* In Deliverable lines if the deliverable product is in pricelist
* In Resource lines if you want to value your deliverable from the resources

NB: Here is the way Odoo will get a price in Deliverable and Resources Lines:

#. If the Estimation Pricelist field is not empty use the Estimation pricelist
#. If empty, use the standard customer pricelist field
#. If no pricelist available (for example no customer defined in the project), use
the product Sales price.


#. In the BR, you can add as many deliverable lines as necessary. Price of the deliverable
lines will depend on the pricelist(s) in customer.

#. Once the deliverable lines are created you can create as many resources lines as necessary
in each DL. Cost price of the product will apply

#. in RL you can already assign the responsible of the task if necessary

Bug Tracker

Bugs are tracked on `GitHub Issues <>`_.
In case of trouble, please check there if your issue has already been reported.
If you spotted it first, help us smashing it by providing a detailed and welcomed feedback.

Known issues / Roadmap
* As of version, the estimation pricelist has been moved from Project to
Partner object. There is no migration script for the change and the data will
have to be migrated manually.
