Modern ERP Processes Behind Historic Scotch Whisky
The whisky industry is an example of a process industry where it is impossible to accurately predict demand for the final product. Goods stocked must also be

Because the Workbench is part of the TROPOS ERP package, it offers inherent and uninterrupted traceability (this is necessary to ensure accurate reporting for HMCE purposes), from the receiving vats at the distillery, through warehouse maturation, further vatting, bottling, and dispatch to the customer. The product manages the entire process of reduction, filtration, mixing, and tinting (the only legal additive in whisky is caramel coloring), through to the bulk finished product.

Compiere ERP Becomes Part of Consona
In the enterprise open source space, a notable change came to light today affecting Compiere users and partners. Consona announced its acquisition of Compiere.

Last but not least, as discussed in Part 1, the ultimate goal is to provide better control over the lifecycle of services by enforcing policy compliance from software development to operations.
