Purchase Requisition Bid Selection
This module allows to make calls for bids by generating an RFQ for selected suppliers, encode the bids, compare and select bids, generate draft POs.
First, a list of products is established. The call for bid is then confirmed and RFQs can be generated. They are in the state 'Draft RFQ' until sent to the supplier and then marked as 'RFQ Sent'. The bids have to be encoded and moved to state 'Bid Encoded'. When closing the call for bids, in order to start the bids selection, all RFQ that have not been sent will be canceled. However, sent RFQs can still be encoded. Bids that are not received will remain in state 'RFQ Sent' and can be manually canceled.
Afterwards, the bids selection can be started by choosing product lines. The workflow has been modified to allow to mark that the selection of bids has occurred but without having to generate the POs yet (Bids selected). Then an approval of the selection is required and POs can be created at a new later state called 'Selection closed'.
When generating POs, they are created in the state 'Draft PO' introduced by the module purchase_rfq_bid_workflow.
Some fields have been added to specify with more details the call for bids and prefill fields of the generated RFQs.
A link has been added between a call for bids line and the corresponding line of each generated RFQ. This is used for the bids comparison in order to compare bid lines and group then properly.
To proceed and validate bid selection, you can print the "Comparative Bid Analysis". This comparative report will only show eligible bids.
For running the tests the nose python package is required.
Version prior to 0.4 was defining a dest_address_id field on Purchase Requisition. This field has been extracted in module purchase_requisition_delivery_address
