General information

Crowd-founding campaign to expand the manufacturing application suite based of free software called OpenMRP (http://en.openmrp.es/), which extends the comprehensive business management solution OpenERP.

OpenERP is a comprehensive suite of applications that manages all aspects in a convenient, flexible and fast way, valid for any type of business (services, manufacturing, shop...), and any size (small, medium or large).

Currently, OpenMRP is already available for download, installation and use for version 6.1 of OpenERP.

The project includes code cleaning, improved integration with new and old features of the system and ensure easier adaptation to future versions of the base.

If the optimal amount is reached, we will complete technical and functional documentation, in addition to automated tests to ensure quality and avoid regressions in future changes.

Description of the project. Main features, strengths and differentials.

OpenERP is the open source ERP more powerful in the market. It allows an exhaustive control of the management of a company of any size and it also benefits from its open source nature. It has one of the most active communities in the sector, which contributes and enriches the ecosystem of software. The core of the software is developed and maintained by the Belgian company OpenERP S. A.

OpenERP covers the basic functionality of industrial or manufacturing companies, but there
are different industries that require to control their basic flows differently or more thoroughly. Therefore, in 2011, OpenMRP arrived in response to the need of covering all these flows, as complementary and integrated application with OpenERP, thanks to its excellent development framework and leveraging also the powerful functionality available in other areas.

The development was made for OpenERP 6.0 and 6.1 versions, resulting in a set of modules that can be added to an OpenERP base installation to extend and modify the behavior of the tools in the manufacturing area. Since then, there have been multiple deployments of such modules in real companies that have proven useful to treat advanced manufacturing issues, like:

  • Management of operations, machines, materials lists and production processes.
  • Management of the manufacturing by operations
  • Integration with sales, logistics, purchasing and invoicing
  • Outsourcing and treatment of all its details (stock loans, service invoicings, etc).
  • Creating semi-finished products at any stage of the manufacturing process.
  • Management of losses.
  • Costing of semi-finished and finished products with last purchase price, average and standard materials cost.
  • Costing of machine operators.
  • Data capture at plant.
  • Track and trace serials and lots.
  • Integration with quality tests.
  • Operations merging for optimizing machines use,
  • etc...

On December 21, 2012 , OpenERP S.A. released version 7.0, including some substantial improvements over the 6.1 version, as:

  • New web interface that emphasizes cleanliness and usability to facilitate the learning curve of the system, while the system unifies access to all platforms (PCs, phones, tablets , etc).
  • New integrated messaging system that promotes communication and social features from within the ERP itself, the first in the world to focus management software with this approach.

So getting this fundings is intended to adapt OpenMRP to OpenERP version 7.0, making full use of all the new features of the version, while it is provided with the complete functionality that OpenMRP gives, allowing many companies in industry sectors to benefit from the new, comprehensive and robust application that arises from this solution in free software.

Why this is important

Our motivation begins with the experience we have obtained on the past with proprietary software and with several manufacturing solutions for companies. Most of the time, those solutions supposed a huge licence cost for the company. All of them were closed-source solutions, not allowing to be customized in an affordable budget. Sometimes they can not be adapted to company real needs and some of them are technologically obsolete and complicated to mantain, but they were selected because there was not an alternative solution on market.

The promoters of this project (us) believe on the common godd and the community spirit, and because of this, we feel the need of offering to manufacturing companies a free, adaptable, state of the art technology, sustainable, cheap and functional alternative that was inexistant on market.

To get it, we needed an strong base that allows adaptation and customizations, and we selected between all existant open source solutions OpenERP (version 6.0 in that moment). Then, we evolved the solution to version 6.1, and now we want not only to adapt modules to 7.0 but also evolve to a full manufacturing application suite fully integrated with OpenERP.

We believe our project could be interesting for:

MANUFACTURING COMPANIES

  • Using technologically obsolete software, without maintenance.
  • Start-up wanting to automate and/or define their processes correctly from the begining, without being "software slaves", and paying and affordable amount for the project.
    • Wanting to have less licence costs.
    • Believing on shared tools and community work.

OTHER MANUFACTURING SOLUTION INTEGRATORS
There is a lot of small companies having local solutions, limited tecnologically, with an interesting customer base, whose costs are growing up due to the metheorical evolution of technologies.
OpenMRP is really an alternative to take in mind to switch to and redirect their bussiness to a global solution adopted and validated for thousands integrators worldwide.

PEOPLE INTERESTED IN OPENERP, MANUFACTURING, OPEN SOURCE...
Anyone who would like to give their small contribution to the project would be really appreciated. A lot of smalls makes a big one.

Goals of the crowdfunding campaign

Raise funds for the adaptation to version 7, and the improvement of documentation and the usability of the manufacturing industry solution OpenMRP, conceived as an OpenERP extension.

If we get more than the minimum amount, we will refactorize all the code according to the latest quality standards in the world community, as well as OpenERP community coding guidelines to ensure that the maintenance will be minimal for future releases.

Finally, if we reach the optimum amount, the entire system will be completed with YAML automated tests to avoid regressions in future updates, and we'll elaborate full documentation of the modules and their functional coverage. It is also plan to propose the inclusion of the modules on community repositories, for full integration into the OpenERP ecosystem.

Everything done, always respecting the same philosophy that open source software maker, will be released under the open source license AGPL -3.

Team and experience

Avanzosc (http://www.avanzosc.es/) is a company created on 2006 by Ana Juaristi, OpenERP integrator during a lot of years and OpenMRP original designer and creator, having big experience and expertise on manufacturing and industry sectors. The company also counts with big experience and resources on accounting, financials, logistics and projects, having implemented OpenERP in companies of several different sectors.

Pedro Manuel Baeza is an independent proffesional that starts with OpenERP in 2010, with more than 10 years of experience as information system manager in an industrial company, experienced on open source and privative sofwtare. During last 3 years, he has contributed with spanish and worldwide OpenERP community, collaborating in any aspect of them (coordinating, development, translation, bug support, help, etc), and that is why he is one of the spanish localization top contributor and one of the 24 community team member. The number of proposals made to adapt OpenERP spanish localization to version 7.0 made him having strong knowledge of the system last version. On the other side, his participation on reviewing and approval proccess on OpenERP OCB branches and community repositories, make him an expert on OpenERP core and the ecosystem around it.
