Maestro is a web-based Business Support System (BSS) for the fictional Swift Construction Company (SCC). Maestro provides functionality typically required for a engineering and manufacturing organization, and includes complete operational data for evaluation, presentation and testing. Maestro is an open-source project.
Maestro functionality is provided through modules. Core modules provide basic functionality (e.g. employees, organizations, contacts, projects, activities, and documents). Higher-level functionality is built on top of core modules (e.g. managing projects, product data, manufacturing processes, customer relationships, and issues).
Maestro can be deployed in a private or public cloud environment:
- Private-Cloud – users access Maestro over a local area network (LAN or VLAN).
- Public-Cloud – users access Maestro securely over the internet.
In a large scale deployment, a local storage server (for a work-group or geographic region) can be included to improve performance with large documents or files, or to meet regulatory, security or quality requirements.
The Swift Construction Company (the SCC) is a fictional high-tech product development, manufacturing and services company. Maestro includes SCC operational data for evaluation, training, testing, and as a starting point for new implementations.
