RFC: Product Storage Instructions #205
The module is rudimentary at this point, simply providing a M2M on to relate storage instructions to specific products.
In our v10 iteration we are planning to add a glue module for
In the existing module, we are also looking into a concept of storage time as part of the instructions, as well as a field allowing abstract validation (similar to
Our medicaments are
Product storage is likely something other industries deal with, so I was seeing if there was any interest in this (or if some other strategies exist) before we go further.
I only just came across this RFC, however I can definitely see how this would be incredibly useful for food service companies, or perhaps chemical manufacturing companies that may have specific storage requirements. I definitely see this module being very useful outside of the scope of the medical vertical.
I currently have a use case for this module with a food & beverage distribution company. They sell a wide range of products ranging from dry-aged beef and wines, through to fruits and vegetables. They could definitely find a use for providing specific instructions and inventory locations for storage.
For example, dry aged beef needs to be stored at a constant ~4°C and around 85% humidity, while different wine varietals and vintages will have different storage requirements.
In a similar manner if you're selling avocados and bananas, you will have specific storage instructions and requirements for these, perhaps also specifying a stock location that is entirely separate for the two so that they don't interact and spoil.
In my humble opinion, I think this should be re-opened, as the module has a wide number of use cases outside of vertical-medical.
@lukebranch - Thanks for the elaboration. This was indeed the use case I was thinking of when I submitted this RFC. Reopening.
I'll tailor & submit the module upstream at some point soon, but feel free to escalate the process by bringing it over yourself
Medicaments are a direct inherit from product, so changes should be incredibly minimal.
