Upcoming May event marks largest gathering yet of open source manufacturing community.

OpenMFG, the leading provider of open source-based enterprise solutions for small manufacturers and distributors, will be holding a week-long training and development planning session for its community of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software users from May 15-19.

Dozens of community members, ranging from new customers to seasoned OpenMFG experts, will join the Company at its Norfolk, Virginia, headquarters to learn more about the world’s most powerful open source-based ERP. Users will create their own OpenMFG company databases from scratch, and run through a variety of real-world business processes. In addition, OpenMFG will hold sessions focused on using OpenRPT, the open source report writer that ships with OpenMFG, as well as the PostgreSQL database, a core technology for both products. The community will discuss upcoming development priorities (including code contributions already submitted by customers and partners), and there will be ample time for networking and informal connections among the user group.

OpenMFG’s flagship product is an advanced ERP software solution built with open source components, such as the Linux operating system, the PostgreSQL database, and the OpenRPT report writer. Available OpenMFG modules include Inventory Management, Product Definition and Costing, Work Order Management, Master Scheduling and MRP, Capacity Planning, Purchase Order Management, Sales Order Management, Shipping and Receiving, Sales Analysis, Project Management, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, and a full General Ledger.

Under the Company’s innovative hybrid license, customers and partners have full access to the application source code, and any enhancements made to the product flow back to OpenMFG for review, quality testing, and possible incorporation into the baseline product.

The training session is open to all OpenMFG customers and partners (including value-added resellers, consultants, and developers), and runs from Monday, May 15, through Friday, May 19, in Norfolk, Virginia. Please contact for more information, or to RSVP.
