Inventory / Work Order / Procedure System - Automation Service

Automation Service remanufactures industrial process controls in the St. Louis, MO area. The firm’s requirements are unusual in that their business and technical operations are of “enterprise” complexity, but they are a midsize firm. Between that and their unusual niche, their needs are not readily met by any off the shelf manufacturing system they could find.

Oasis Digital created and maintains a custom end-to-end inventory-and-much-more system they use to run their business. The system includes:

  • automated, rules-based sales quotations
  • rules-based configurator
  • rules-based pricing engine
  • automated, rules-based bill of materials processing
  • configurable order processing
  • bar coding printing and scanning
  • random-putaway inventory tracking
  • hierarchical inventory locations (boxes inside boxes inside pallets inside warehouses)
  • scheduling, including graphic drag-drop schedule view
  • integration with multiple external systems
  • interface to shipping company software for shipping automation
  • receiving automation, with barcodes
  • remote data collection with handheld scanners
  • any-user-anywhere login support
  • production and sales metrics
  • much more

Technologies:

  • MS SQL Server
  • Delphi
  • Numerous Delphi extension libraries
  • Prolog
  • FAX server
  • Videx bar code scanners, other bar code scanners
  • Zebra label printers
  • many more

The video at the top of this page summarizes the project; the two additional videos at the bottom go in to more depth in the manufacturing and technical aspects of the system.

If you’ve read and watched this far, we appreciate your interest. Our customer is proud of this project and so are we. Even the team who created the case study videos have something to be proud of, the camera work in the second video.

Software developers: for more information on how we used Prolog to deliver for this customer, take a look at Kyle Cordes’s blog post where the story is told.
