Re: An Analysis Pattern for Inventories

We work with consensus from the core team. For application packages that has typically included Reinhard and myself. We welcome all input. As with most free software a lot gets defined by the person doing to work and making the contribution. Good work is seldom turned away.

The process involves putting forward a proposal, then vetting it either with email or IRC discussions. When we reach general agreement (or get close) we commit to CVS.

I would very much like to use patterns. We have some limitations however. The work must be in the public domain or usable under a license that is acceptable to Derek (GNU). Also the contributors must have signed a copyright assignment.

Hi all,

Ke Deng touches on a subject I've been wondering about while lurking around your mailing lists: what/who is GNUe's "product management" e.g. who gets to define what features to do, even before you come up with domain analysis or design decisions. Where does the domain expertise come from that decides that a specific way to handle inventory, do accounting, or model supply chains is the way to go.

In any case, if you think analysis patterns are helpful, let me know, I may be able to help. (E.g. I know the author of the paper Ke Deng is pointing to.) I'd also recommend Martin Fowler's book. I even put out some as I call it "business patterns" on the web at:

    I don't know how do you think of "Analysis Pattern".It should be useful
in proposal stage though it could bring some workload to study but it is a
starting point and helpful.
    I have found an Analysis Pattern for Inventories (in attachment
file)-Stock Manager which should be useful for GNUe project.Whether use it
or not depend on your decision,I just hope it helpful to you.
