Subject Re: Attaching files to a product
Date Tue, 06 Jul 2010 09:47:37 GMT
Hi, thanks for the help, the point of including plans in the product is twofold:

For ourselves, we want a place where the engineers can comment on, jot down notes, and much
much more about the parts that make the final product, the final product being a machine.
That way, the guys building the machine can refer to OFBiz directly for the plans, AND for
any extra info and/or note the engineers thought fit for the part.

For the clients, we need them to be able to view a part and order it. An image will probably
do the trick for that, but for now we have our parts references in PDF's, for historical reasons.
That and the client's "part plan" may include some notes.

Sorry for any misunderstanding, I hadn't had time to clear that up until now.
