Developing a software solution from scratch, based on the client’s needs and specifications, needs a lot of unstructured exploration. We boarded this working time optimization software product with several challenges:
- Allow the workshop floor operators to interact with the application without the presence of a workstation.
- Display all the critical data on a single comprehensive page.
- Define new complex products along the way, based on existing data.
- Optimize the user interface for tablet access.
- Implement a dashboard with an integrated Gantt chart, to visualize critical information at once.
- Add an import utility to integrate product structures defined in Excel.
