Hi Everyone,

The purpose of this discussion is to illustrate simple manufacturing in ADempiere and iDempiere using a BOM or bill of materials and a sales order. This is part two in a series of four discussions/videos. If you have not watched the first video, I recommend you start there first.

The benefits of using simple manufacturing are:

  1. Simple to learn – learning, configuring and audit are all simplified.
  2. Simple to manage – you use existing order management tools.
  3. Simple to account – there are no manufacturing variances.
  4. Use of existing architecture such as BOM, Order Management, Requests, Product and Warehouse Management (WMS), etc…

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



I hope this helps!!!

Links to demonstrations:

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

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.
