depending on your resources, it would be a good Idea to get as much
documentation understood before starting this project. You may want to
employ one of the consultants that contribute here or are listed on
http://ofbiz.apache.org site to get you up to speed faster.

You will find that you may have to revise you road map.

I am not the most knowledgeable, so there may be others that respond

For instance ofbiz only support a Parent company and it sub companies in
one instance of ofbiz. You can have many instances running depending on
hardware resources.  You can have many websites per instance, but just
for that company and it sub companies.

Running all these instances into one database, may have performance
issues, depending on how many instances are running.
