This is a starting point for exploring the use of OFBiz as the basis of an Acq/Serials module for Evergreen, called WoodChip. OFBiz (Open For Business) is an ERP system that, as of Dec. 20, 2006, is officially a TLP (top level project) at the Apache Software Foundation. The lifeblood of OFBiz are its data models, which are a faithful rendition of Len Silverston's Data Model Resource Book with many additions. OFBiz also adheres to ISO and other standards for entities such as Geographic Boundaries and Units of Measure, and OMG standards for business processes. A Workflow Engine is built into OFBiz, which is modeled after Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC.org) specifications.
WoodChip will bring together several enterprise applications bundled with OFBiz.
