   I am running a home-grown Enterprise Resource Planning system, written
entirely in Python, to manage the operations and manufacturing aspects of a
medium ($100,000,000 annual sales) manufacturing organization.  I would be
interested in hearing from other individuals who are likewise "betting the
farm" on Python as an ERP or MRP solution, and some of the experiences they
may have had.

   We have found Python to be a robust solution for the problems we've
encountered to date, and pass approximately half a gigabyte of daily data
through our custom systems.  We have merged the AS/400 (Python 2.1, soon to
go to 2.2.1) with midrange (PIII700) PC's to create an interesting
heterogenous environment.
