Thanks to Pierre Spilleboudt (Audaxis), Andre Legendre, Miguel Jimenez (e-evolution), Scott Klakken (cijvp) for helping to define Compiere Manufacturing.
Main point: we "invented" a Product Template - the combination of Routing and BOM. This will allow to use Compiere in Discrete and (to a certain degree) Process Manufacturing.
The next steps are:
- Define Data/Object Model
- Implement/Convert existing entities (BOM, etc.)
- Discontinue M_Production* (NO! conversion to the new Work Order Object)
- Adding new Entities & Processes
A more concrete plan will be published end of July.
We are looking for sponsors (pilot sites).
If you are interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your requirements.
As planned Compiere MFG & SCM has updated it's objectives document to take in count what was said in Orlando meeting.
You can find it at :
Roadmap has also been updated, including status of Compiere MFG & SCM
Objectives are quite stable and we are on the road.
Have nice time.
I just went through the general objectives of MFG&SCM and am quite impressed. when is the first code available for testing ? How can I get more involved in this. The company I work for is very interested to take a closer look at Compiere as a possible alternative for our current ERP package.
The first codes are in the process of been finalised in its integration into Eclipse by Andre Legendre, the project Admin of http://sourceforge.net/projects/compiere-mfgscm
The beta integration stage will follow suit. An expected first release is around middle 2005 but still is dependent on a few factors.
Ironically one factor is for a test case client, and this is where u may be able to involve. We need an early reqs study and specs. If such case from a client who is willing to be a prototype, will provide the time to mature of the app. as we can parallely use the specs as a prototype scenario and test certain things on it.
This is not my qualified opinion though as i m just an assistant to Andre in the project team. He might give a clearer direction.
thanking you for your inquiry,
