How to implement the process for Wedding Card business

on 3/6/13, 11:14 AM 1,754 views

Im looking how effectively, I can use openERP for my business which has the following scenario

  1. Customer walks-in and place an order for wedding card delivery
  2. After confirmation of order(receipt of advance), the card goes from Procurement -> design -> Printing -> delivery state
  3. Once it reaches delivery state, its ready for packing and shipment
  4. On receiving the payment, the cards are delivered.

I need know how this process can be recorded in OpenERP v7.

Different approaches possible, depending on the details of your process. If I take the following hypothesis:

  • Inventory management is not important for you
  • Every wedding card batch is different
  • You want to manage discussions, mockups, design documents on every job

One solution, the easieast one:

  1. Install the modules mrp_jit, project, sale
  2. Create a Project 'Wedding Cards Printing' with the following stages Procurements, Design, Printing, Delivery
  3. Create a product 'Wedding Card' with: Make to Order, Manufacture, Service

Then, you should be able to perform the following process:

  • Create a quotation for 50 Wedding Cards
  • You get a task automatically in the Procurement stage of the project
  • People responsible for the service manage the project
  • When the task is closed (delivery), the Sale Order becomes automatically to invoice

One other solution would be to use the inventory management system and define chained locations: Design, Printing, Delivery...
