LemonPOS is a very basic point-of-sale solution for small shops. OpenBravo is a relatively simple ERP for mid-sized organizations, with many accounting, financial, storage functionalities. It also includes a pos solution.

I'm developing a variant of the first, and deploying the second in my organization. The main problem is lack of documentation.

Manufacturing ERP are very expensive like Microsoft Dynamics. Try some opensource alternatives like 2BizBox, Adempiere, OpenERP Community Edition, Faves-ERP, Qcadoo, and so on ... there are lot of them ... and a lot of traps to avoid ... Good luck!!!!
