XERP is nearing its Utility Completion...  Nearly all of the Utility Requirement to drive Enterprise ERP are completed...

  • Nth level security driven Menu Display
  • System User Maintenance
  • System User Security Assingment
  • Security Group Maintenance
  • Company Maintenance
  • A solid repeatable pattern for MVVM WPF development pattern
  • A single DAL config for multiple Entities...
  • A single WCF config for multiple WCF data services...
  • A solid start to the database tables to drive XERP...

The only major low level utility required for XERP is menu maintenance.  I am hoping to have this completed in the next month or so...

What XERP needs now is content lots of content...

We will start with CRM(Customer Relational Management geared screens)...

  • Customer Entry Maintenance...
  • Employee Entry Maintenance...
  • Department Entry Maintenance...
  • Supplier Entry Maintenance...
  • Supplier Purchase Point Entry Maintenance...
  • Bank Entry Maintenance...
  • ect...

The idea would be to recruit a developer for each of the above to specialize and build the WPF UI's mentioned above...

Then we could move on to Inventory Managenent...

  • Plant Maintenance Entry...
  • Warehouse Maintenance Entry...
  • Warehouse Location Management Entry...
  • Part Maintenance Entry...
  • Part Recipe Maintenance Entry...
  • ect...The

Then we would move on to some of the core functionality of ERP...

 

We will attempt to get XERP to be a fully functional CRM system before trying to support full fledged ERP requirements...

  • Order Entry / Quote Entry
  • All of the Accounting modules
  • Job Entry Maintenance
  • Operations Entry Maintenance....
  • ect...

Then finally we will build the modules that tie ERP together...

  • Part Configuration
  • Scheduling Engine
  • Task Sheduler
  • Ect...

The beauty of XERP is in its finite Modulation while holding the modules together via global classes that allow sharing of SQL connection strings and URL service addresses...  The finite modulation allows you to take a very small slice of the ERP pie and serve it up in a matter of days...  While still providing enough globality to drive menu security and and user security and menu display...

As well XERP can be morphed very easily as at it's core it is POCO nothing fancy nothing magical just very simple .net C# code with a very repeatable pattern...  So if you build one finite module you can very easily jump in to any module and understand it as they are all repeatable and will share the same code base...

The idea would be to allow Businesses a zero cost base to the base XERP product allowing their .net developers the root functionality of XERP and then allow them to modify the source code directly per finite module as required per business requirements... 

No longer will small businesses be gouged at the spicket month after month for sub par ERP systems...  No longer will small business require highly paid specialists to work on propietary ERP systems... XERP is POCO (Plain Old C# Code)  Built only with standard .net libraries and or freeware libraries...   No 3rd party tools that are required...  The money you save implementing XERP you can spend on .net C# MVVM developers to customize and maintain the software to your specific requirements...

No longer are you forced to upgrade globally from the big software ERP firms...  With XERP you can target any of of the finite modules you would choose to upgrade...  and or perhaps you don't take any at all and morph XERP in to your very own custom ERP system...

I have worked on ERP systems from big software house for so long and have grown so disgusted with the sub par products they provide...  Once they hook you in they own you... You pay them blood money every month... Then when you have to hire their people to help you with bugs you found in their software...  It amazes me that so many companies are held hostage by this big software houses...  They have no idea how easy it is to take control of their very own ERP and XERP is great foundation to start that process...
