Has anyone had any success installing the OdooPLM community module from Omnia Solutions (http://www.omniasolutions.eu/OmniaSolutions/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=30&Itemid=25&lang=en) on Odoo 8.0 (RC1)?

To get the correct repository i've cloned the git repository as follows:

sudo git clone -b 8.0.1 git://git.code.sf.net/p/openerpplm/code openerpplm-code

and after an update modules list I can see the module appear in the modules list, however under dependencies there is a missing dependency called 'process' that is listed as unknown/unavailable and I get the following error message when trying to install:

You try to install module 'OpenERPPLM' that depends on module 'process'.
But the latter module is not available in your system.

The module has the following description and looks very useful to our company:

Manage Product Lifecycle Management in OpenERP

This application enables a group of people to intelligently and efficiently manage 3D Models and 2D Drawings, directly from CAD editors.

It manages fundamental revisions of Products and Documents, helps to work in Concurrent Engineering with access policies to documents.

Moreover, it adds many reports and views on Bill of Materials or related to them. It helps to share 2D documents using PDF embedded.

New functionality Compare BoMs helps to understand differences between Bill of Materials.

Key Features :

  • Editor Integration
  • Document Management
  • Document Relationship
  • Engineering Bill of Materials
  • Spare Parts BoM & Reports
  • Compare BoMs

Supported Editors :

  • Category : CAD / Mechanical CAD

    • ThinkDesign 2009.3 (and above)
    • SolidWorks 2011 (and above)
    • Inventor 2011 (and above)
    • SolidEdge ST3 (and above)
  • Category : CAE / Electrical CAD

    • SPAC 2013 (needs SDProget connector license)

If anyone has any insight on where to find an 8.0 branch of the 'process' module to resolve this issue it would be very much appreciated.

For anyone following this thread i've found an answer here: http://sourceforge.net/p/openerpplm/discussion/general/thread/30b8c441 It seems there were significant changes in the WMS that have required some changes to the OdooPLM 8.0.1 branch. The developer has mentioned that he plans to release a fix at the end of August.
