> OFBIZ-5852 enables you to add a Party to a Routing Task (the

> If the person is on leave or unavailable, the production manager would have 
> to manually specify a different person.
> It would be better to specify skill or skills required for the Routing Task. 
> Then on each production run, any Party with the right skills could be

> There are already entities WorkEffortSkillStandard, PartySkill and SkillType  
> which could be used to enable this.
