Re: MRP modules in Odoo v10

Hi Jean-Marc, 

although not having had so many touch points with either of the MRP
implementations so far (meaning in-depth hands on experience), i have
quite closely followed the different paths Odoo and the community took.

To my perspective MRP is one of premier examples where the community
innovates (many thanks to Pedro and all the folks around him) and the 
vendor takes up the then obvious market requirement to keep up with
that functional field as well.

However, the last time i was assessing this the innovations where
different in the sense that the community MRP is much more feature
complete whereas the MRP implementation of v10 (enterprise) pretty much
focuses on CAD/CAE integration (which is very important but not the
sole purpose of MRP). 

Furthermore, i believe (but knowing is a different story) that v8 MRP
is a much more mature and complete implementation for the time being
and probably for a long period, so for serious MRP projects i would
still tend to go with that one.

If major functionality (such as MRP) will ever be ported to v10 is
questionable to me for the time being. There seems still quite few
interest in following Odoos marketing agenda by porting all modules in
one year cycles (which also doesn't make much sense to me). 

The dilemma here is. Odoo S.A needs to be easy, vastly available,
affordable but not necessarily feature complete to address a mass
market (just like every VC startup literature suggests), a serious MRP
project needs quite the opposite (feature completeness, stability and
maturity of the business modell...)

Sorry but these are just my 50-cent as for strategic considerations
