For this training, we will step into the shoes of the IT staff at the fictional company Awesome T-Shirt, which is dedicated to printing custom t-shirts for online customers. The Awesome T-Shirt company uses Odoo to manage orders and has created a dedicated Odoo module to manage their workflow. The project is currently a simple kanban view, with a few columns.
The usual process is as follows: a customer looking for a nice t-shirt can simply order it from the Awesome T-Shirt site and give the url for any image they want. They must also fill in some basic information, such as the desired size and quantity of t-shirts. Once they have confirmed their order, and once the payment has been validated, the system will create a task in our application.
The big boss of Awesome T-shirt, Bafien Carpink, is unhappy with our implementation. He believes that by micromanaging more, he will be able to get more revenue from his employees. As the IT staff for Awesome T-shirt, we are responsible with improving the system. Various independent tasks must be performed.
