Build Access database for Fortune 500 paper and packaging company. Database manages 1 Billion of Inventory
Virginia Beach, VA
Yorktown - We were subcontracted to Ryson through our network engineering strategic partner Network Technologies and Solutions (NTS). Ryson's Chief Operating officer had been slowly putting together and Access Database to replace a series of complex Excel files in order to manage the process of building conveyor belts. We took over the Access database, enforced naming conventions, developed easy to use navigation forms and maintenance tables. Now this conveyor manufacturer has a backbone database application that provides completion timeline information to the engineering departments, the manufacturing departments, the finance departments and the sales department. A calendar is created for everyone to see. Huge printouts showing all current projects and the people needed to sign off are printed out and put up throughout the facility. We hope to replace these with direct feeds to monitors.
UpTime Solutions Professional Services Group
Network Engineering Firm in Richmond, Virginia.
This is a Quality tracking and improvement Access database for a manufacturing firm: Greystone in Toano, VA (near Westpoint and Williamsburg).
This application receives multiple excel files throughout the day that are produced from quality control machiney in the plant. The excel files are imported to the Access database automatically.
The Access database scrolls through the excel files, parsing out the relevant information from the excel file and appends the relevant data points to a table that is then used to run monthly and quarterly quality control reports.
The data is pertinent to the automobile manufacturing process and determines which production batches should or should not be accepted for Greystones automobile manufacturing clients.
