Would you like to join team learning on Manufacturing Module

Libero Demystification. There is also the need to bring Manufacturing into mainstream ERP. Bring in via OSGI plugin or patches? How to ensure it is stable and backward compatible?

Manufacturing Module - ADempiere Team Learning 01



* The Manufacturing Module integrated in ADempiere is a proven function in real cases. This is distinctive in open source ERPs.
* But it is very difficult to learn due to lack of documents and the complexity of manufacturing itself. It really frustrates lots of people who wish to learn it and use in their real cases.
* However, if we are united, through team learning, we will do it easier and faster.


* This project is to form a team to carry out systematic learning on ADempiere's Manufacturing Module.
* This project will have 2 teams.
o Chinese Team.
+ Chinese team has been created, team learning has been processing.
+ See here for details - Manufacturing Module - Team Learning - Chinese Team ( written in Chinese, you can read it by Google Translate
o International Team.
+ This team will use English.
* The two teams will operate separately.

Time line

* Current phase: Team member sign up.
* Team Learning will start when we have 4 team members, hope we can start around Mar 2011.
