Scheduling Editor – And PDF Generator (Completed)

This application allows the schedulers to edit all reports generated from the current Scheduling process plus generate PDF versions of them.

Report editing

  • Schedulers occasionally require changing reports printed from the current scheduling program. This was previously done manually by highlighters and pen.
  • This application lets the user edit/insert or delete any information generated from the scheduling interpreter application.
  • The users can also add additional comments and watermarks to the reports such that the plant would not overlook certain process such as Mylar Wrap, etc.

 

Generating PDF

  • With accordance with the Paperless initiative all reports can be automatically converted to PDFs for distribution.
  • All reports and labels are automatically stored to hard drive so that we can have a record of everything sent for production in digital format.
  • This will allow plants to be able to print labels at demand at the plant and also reprint missing or damaged labels without contacting the schedulers here.

New Scheduling Interpreter Program

This application will replace the old Scheduling Interpreter I created for SEMCO in 2002. The new app is being designed using the latest RAD Studio 2009 vs the old Visual Studio 6. New version will contain the scheduling editor previously mention and many of the bug fixes requested from the Scheduling.

Advantages of New Scheduling Interpreter

  • Easier to debug and change application using RAD Studio vs Visual Studio and XML.
  • Will be faster in process or running with new database access and system performance.
  • Using Crystal Reports XI R2 vs the old Crystal Reports 8.5 used in the older version.
  • Scheduling Editor Integration will allow the schedulers to generate PDFs directly instead of going in to another application to do so.
