Hi Everyone,

This blog kicks off a series of demonstrations that helps you understand the options available for performing manufacturing in ADempiere and iDempiere open source erp (Open Source MRP). In this first video, we discuss the three manufacturing options (1) Simple – order BOM, (2) Moderate or manufacturing light – Production , and (3) Complex – MRPII. We also discuss the differences between ADempiere and iDempiere and how these difference relate to the above manufacturing options.

Links to demonstrations:

  1. Simple demo – Order BOM
  2. Moderate demo – Light Manufacturing
  3. Make to Order demo – MRPII MTO
  4. Complex Demo – MRPII (coming soon)

If you have questions, comments or concerns, please be quick to provide feedback.


I hope this helps!!!

Please note that ADempiere, iDempiere and Openbravo are forks or copies from Compiere. Therefore, they have similar abilities mentioned above. The biggest difference is that ADempiere and iDempiere are pure open source. There are no features held behind a commercial or paid license. This is especially true for open source manufacturing (MRP).

About Chuck Boecking: I am an ERP educator. I believe that open source ERP have achieved mainstream capabilities, and as a result, more companies can create greater efficiency across their organization. I started using the iDempiere code base in 2003. Back then, it was called Compiere. In 2006, I started my first multi-million dollar installation. Since then, ADempiere has helped me create great success with distribution and manufacturing companies all over the world. My vision of success is to find companies that can best use open source ERP to help them achieve a single, global instance that drives a discontinuous increase in profitability. I believe that organizations win when they own their technology.

If you have questions, comments or concerns, let me know. I definitely want your feedback.
