I have learned that Analytic Accounting can be used to manage the Cost Centers. But, for cost centers:
- We must be able to allocate the budget
- We must be able to compare the actual vs allocated budgets.
- We must be able to warn the users if going beyond allocations.
Following is the link to Cedric’s blueprint for something like this module:
I think this module must be there in order to allocate budgets to various departments or heads. And If we plan to develop such a module, we should also think about re-designing the cost center management in Tryton. Many financial software allow tagging of project code or department name to expenses in order to manage the cost centers. And at start of each fiscal year, allocations are made corresponding to projects or departments.
Your ideas are welcome, please.
