Ongoing cooperation since 2005.
Together with the customer we created a specification sheet and a detailed mask layout. Using Oracle Forms and Java dialogues, we developed the control stations in the entry, exit and control station. The input and output sequence, the setup or pass schedule calculation and the roll data are checked and edited via the dialogs. Communication with the production planning system (Level 3) and the Level-1 system, which is used to operate and monitor the system, works with database-based telegrams.
The creation of manuals, training on the system, documentation and, in some cases, database administration were also included in the scope of the projects.
When the system has gone live and is optimized, one of our employees is always on site to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
