Subject [jira] [Commented] (OFBIZ-9134) Add required skills to Routing Tasks
Date Fri, 02 Dec 2016 07:40:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-9134?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15714343#comment-15714343

Pierre Smits commented on OFBIZ-9134:

Are we sure we want to put a complex solution to find suitable employees for a production
task in place?

In most companies, it is the production manager who assigns tasks to workers. And the pool
is limited (only employees that are allocated under *his* management. This applies to both
smaller and larger company. In a small company it easier than in a large company (where multiple
similar departments can exist). The production manager knows his workers, and there are no
others. In the larger company, the production manager will have to negotiate with the production
managers of other (similar) production departments to get the resources.

> OFBIZ-5852 enables you to add a Party to a Routing Task (the WorkEffortPartyAssignment
entity), to specify a person who is preferred to perform the task.
> If the person is on leave or unavailable, the production manager would have to manually
specify a different person.
> It would be better to specify skill or skills required for the Routing Task. Then on
each production run, any Party with the right skills could be scheduled to perform the task.
> There are already entities WorkEffortSkillStandard, PartySkill and SkillType  which could
be used to enable this.
