Basically, the company which I refer to involved in engineering, die-making, raw material fabrication, metal stamping and assembly of automotive components mostly for (name removed). The company is TS-ISO certified and has been in operation for almost 20 years with almost 300 employees and a large production factory. Currently, their operation is supported by Lotus / Excel spreadsheets and a simple accounting software.
The owner has a strong vision and desire to enhance their operational and financial efficiency to a higher level. Thus, they are looking for a good MRP system with source code since they also have the idea of selling the solution to their 2nd tier supplier, and possibly to other manufacturers as well.
After some research and study on the Compiere and several other open source ERP software, I manage to convince the owner to adopt Compiere not only for their MRP but also ERP and CRM. And they basically agree to sponsor the development for the MRP module development. From project management perspective, I see high success rate for the system implementation due to the profound support and understanding from the owner.
That is the brief description of the project, I myself am not familiar with Compiere but its features, flexibility and architecture is among the best (but also most complex) I've seen that I have no doubt to recommend the company owner about Compiere. (And of course thanks to your vast explanation in the red1.org forum).
I really looking forward to discuss in detail about the project with you.
