Generation of data for the production of windows, order handling
In building industries when putting up a building components are usually industrially prefabricated and afterwards mounted on site. Those components seldom fit into standard measures. In fact they usually have to be designed and assembled to measure. Thereby properties of the production process regarding the used materials and the available assembly infrastructure have to be taken into consideration.
Within the AUSKUNFT project a software package had been developed with which production orders over windows and doors can entirely be handled under the described conditions. It accounts for product design, manufacturing and costing. The manufacturing and calculation data are completely stored in an Informix database.
The project is closed and completely handed over to the project partner, who took over the tasks of maintenance and further development. A few minor assistance requests have been dealt with in 2003 so the system is still in field operation.
