I dont know any company that does not use cost centers, even in an old fasion way (using their accounting accounts) Its a must¡!¡

What is the status of this project? It appears there hasn't been a change to the changelog in over two months?
Activity is not part of the Production but is just another Accounting Dimension we have, http://wiki.openbravo.com/wiki/Accounting_Schema#Account_Schema_Element.
So if you enable this dimension and make it visible through Application Dictionary for the windows you need - then you will be able to analyze all your transactions using Activity as a parameter, for example here, http://wiki.openbravo.com/wiki/Accounting_Transaction_Details.
Anyway if you have some plans for such module it would be really interesting for us to have a look at it because we might find some synergies with our Roadmap because we have there Analytical Accounting: (Cost Centers, Markets, divisions).
If collaboration is interesting for you here you can get in touch with Pablo Sarobe, pablo dot sarobe at openbravo dot com.

Activites are part of production, correct? Not all companies are using production.
In a distribution model, let's say export/import, our customers want to track logistic costs, custom duties, quality control, etc. and assign them to cost centers, and allocate to profit center.
We are specifying a module to easily compute, input, and allocate costs, as it was brought up by many of our customers.

Indexing Transactions through Activities works for me. Then the company can filter the accounting by these parameter. (Activities = cost center)
Creo que un producte de la categoría de Openbravo, no puede evadirse de disponer de contabilidad analítica. No comprendo en que compañías estan instalando el producto el resto de partners, deben utilizar otro producto auxiliar para dar este soporte a sus clientes, o son clientes con necessidades mínimas (pequeñas pymes).
