The company wanted to manage production instructions in Excel, making the work that was based on the formulas active in the spreadsheets more efficient. After careful and thorough consultations, we started to develop the software in continuous cooperation with the partner. It was a real challenge for us to master the specific production process, and to comprehend and implement the related formulas and calculations, as all of these were essential for creating the web application.
The result was an interface into which different ordering requests can be imported. Based on the existing production instructions, the system reads the relevant data, calculates the figures for production and creates an exportable manufacturing instruction. In addition to this, the ideas we suggested for redefining the entire user experience were eventually implemented.
After its launch the software was used in parallel with the existing system, in order to test its proper operation. Having evaluated the feedback, we also provided additional support activities.
