(Red1, thank you very much for running this informative web site, it has helped me with a lot of questions.)
I'm new to Compiere. I've purchased the Compiere documentation, I've read many of the posts on this site as well as the sourceforge site, and I have read the Compilo document.
I have a question / suggestion regarding Compiere functionality and I wanted to get peoples feedback on it. Let me start by giving a little background information.
All of the Compiere resources can help with specific questions and issues, but none of them (that I have found) give an example of an "average day" or "Cookbook examples" at company XYZ. My idea is that it may save new users a lot of time if there were a few, very compact, "average-day-scenario" examples for simple companies in various industries. As an example...
Company "XYZ" is a simple Ecommerce company. They only sell items through their web page to the retail public. They do not sell wholesale. They have two employees, the first is the owner (Susan) who handles all of the office work, the second is the employee (Ted) who handles all of the shipping, receiving and warehouse work.
An average work day at XYZ may look like this....
On Monday morning the owner (Susan) arrives and wants to see how many order the web site took during the weekend. Susan brings up the "[some compiere window or report]" screen this report tells her how many orders are pending. She then brings up "[some compiere window or report]" to check profit margin on sales for the month.
Susan does her ordering with her distributors and manufacturers on Monday so she runs the "[some compiere window or report]" to generate her Purchase orders.
In the warehouse....
Ted brings up the "[some compiere window or report]" screen to start processing pending orders.
etc, etc, etc....
I'm not sure if this would be any help to new users of Compiere, but this is the type of information I was looking for when I was trying to figure out how all of Compieres screens worked together. Any suggestions? Do people think this sort of document would be helpful or two cumbersome?
