Odoo proposes tracking policies, by Lot or by unique serial number.
With a traceability approach, it covers most of the requirements in terms of up and down traceability (report, tracking,…) but not in terms of product life management - maintenance, asset, …
Cluedoo extends the notion of serial number from an inventory concept to a master data concept at a sub-level of the product variant.
You can track the life of each serial number, before (production), during exploitation (renting, maintenance, financial asset), at the end of product life (scrap, asset disposal).
This extension of serial number from inventory information to master data object implies integration of the serial number in several Odoo apps.
Target of Cluedoo serial number management is to have a central object with interaction with all other apps in Odoo.
General architecture principle is to connect the serial number management with an app dedicated to your business, which can be Odoo standard, as fleet management, Cluedoo, as power central or studio created apps.
