Projects:ServiceAndSupportManagement/User Documentation


Pending to document


Service and Support Management provides a functionality to the customers who sell and service the products sold. The objective of this new functionality is to provide Openbravo with a functionality to manage, maintain and repair the products sold. Also for the products which are not maintained by the servicing organization. The system will provide the user with an agile tool to manage the repair of one or more products belonging to the same client.


After the module is installed service related fields will be visible in the Work Order window.

A beta product is issued to the customer for testing.
In this case, the product still remains as a part of your stock but at the end of the day, you still want to know where the product resides.
To handle this case, you need to assign a warehouse as a customer warehouse. Once this is done you need to create Storage Bin associated with the customer.

Once the configuration is done, the user can define a Work Order using the Product entity.

Outsourcing Agency

Navigate to Application || Service and Support Management || Outsourcing Agency

Definition: The external agency which can be used to capture and external agency information if the technical service is performed by an external agency.

This functionality works with or without instantiable attributes within Openbravo. Once a Goods Shipment is created using an instantiable attribute, a new record is created in a window called "Installed Base Product". This window consolidates the warranty information for each product sold.
