Do you dream of the perfect company?
That's the company where information moves freely between all functional areas, where you never have to enter data a second time, and everything is centralized in a single enterprise management system. This is the place where you rarely work on anything in a panic because everything is planned and well-structured, where everybody has permanent access to all useful information, and where all routine tasks are automated and easily controlled. This book presents a modern approach to retail and industrial management, giving you the tools for implementing this type of integrated management based on Open ERP.
In such a company:
A nice overview of the manufacturing, warehousing and order entry parts of the OpenERP application. It even manages to point out some nifty features present in the architecture, but it fails to be readable, unless you're part of the ERP crowd. And it sadly leaves out AR/AP and all Financials… And the advertised OSS Management, doesn't even exist in the book.
All in all, a bit of a disappointment.
