Case Studies

Work we have done for our clients.

Study 1: Production Scheduling

In Spire's Production module, only one production order's "Expected Start Date" can be changed at a time. This creates a tedious and repetitive process when a problem arises, such as a factory shutdown or machine repair, that affects the expected start date of multiple production orders.

Save Time

A client approached us with this problem and outlined their preferred solution, which was to change several production orders simultaneously. The result:

  • Graphical User Interface to view and modify Production Orders
  • The ability to batch move expected start dates by +/- up to 5 days or by selecting a specific date
  • The ability to batch move from one phase to another
  • The ability to un-schedule production orders
  • Right mouse clicking on a calendar date displays details for all Production Orders for that date
  • Primary filter by phase
  • Fine tune filtering by any fields
  • User Authentication: Admin users have full access to all features, while all others have only read access

Reduce Errors

With our Production Scheduling application the client now quickly makes changes en-masse to their production orders while reducing error-prone manual entries.
