Hi Shane,

Basically your requirement is a government ERP.

There are 2 types of jobs in your description: routine job("Initial
Counsultation, Drug Testing, etc") and project job.

The workloads of routine jobs can be predefined and approved automatically.
Every fiscal year or so you can adjust the settings of workloads.

The project jobs can be budget based funded. The daily workloads can be
filled in by its members ("The attorney would then have to provide counsel
within 36 hours and report back that they had done so") and
verified/approved by project managers.

It would be better if you have an OFBiz workflow plugin (i.e. Activiti [1]
and etc.) to run routine jobs.

Kind Regards,

Shi Jinghai

主题: A point in the right direction

I started looking into ofbiz because I need to create a solution for a new
regulation we have at work. We are a courthouse and the state has mandated
that we provide representation for individuals on a daily basis.
In a nutshell, I need to have a system where a clerk can assign a defendant
to an attorney. The attorney would then have to provide counsel within 36
hours and report back that they had done so. An administrator would be able
to oversee the process and verify it. Then pay the attorney for the counsel.
The defendant might have multiple consultations with different attorneys/
probation officers/ drug testing facilities over the time that the case is

I've played around with ofbiz, adding data  using the various ootb
components and I've tried the getting started tutorial, successfully adding
the ofbiz demo plugin. That went fine. Now I am trying to figure out how to
implement a solution. I am thinking that the Project component would be a
good place to start because I can make a "Defendant"  project and add
attorney / probation officer / reviewer resources, then an administrator
could create phases like "Initial Counsultation, Drug Testing, etc"

Does this sound like I am on the right track? Or should I be looking at it
