    • Mathematically orient truss parts according to machine’s optimum setup speeds and highest quality output. Ability to re-orient or completely customize each individual element giving operator fast and accurate production.

    • Job flow control for plant production, recording current jobs on production, priority checking, notifies other stations in plant of completed products for transfer.

    • Sorting/Ordering/Queuing tasks and batches for machine operator base on server

    • Server Application to distribute jobs to machines based on availability and machine restrictions

    • Two tier client/server production reporting software to record machine production by job, operator, day, season, etc. Help management get statistical information to get production forecasts, system downtime and production bottle neck analysis.

    • Remote Production Reporting software using Crystal Reports, used for live production report viewing for management and maintenance.

    • Socket communication with server, other machinery in the production system such as lumber stackers, conveyor belts, forklifts, and various marking equipment.

    • Other communication used such as OFS/OPC Server, Modbus TCP/IP to communication with machinery PLC for full machine control. (Modicon Telemecanique PLC used)

    • Using serial and parallel communication for use with label printers, inkers and other marking systems.

    • Full life cycle from product design, implementation, testing to distribution was my responsibility.

  • Desawyer ES/ESC – Next Generation Of Desawyer 2000 (2006 – 2007)
