Solution – DHDS
Qubisoft initially conducted an analysis of the existing process and how the data currently collected was being used. The next stage involved creating low fidelity wireframes for an Android tablet application that would be used by the employees to capture when tasks were started and completed, what components and consumables were used as well as what products were produced, shipped etc.
With approval that the tablet application would be suitable, development begin in tandem with a web-based application to communicate with the tablet application to store the data and also report on key information.
Some of the key features of the application including being able to manage clients and users, record and report on inventory levels, schedule tasks, record time spent working on tasks and documenting products and the components of which they are made.
In conjunction with DHDS, an extensive testing process was conducted with real-world data. Initially the testing process was used to enhance the user experience before focusing on data accuracy and reliability. With confidence in the functionality of both the web-based application and Android tablet application, there was a phased rollout across staff at DHDS
The system is currently in active use by everyone within DHDS across multiple tablets. It has proven to provide enhanced visibility of inventory levels as well as more accurate tracking of time required on production tasks, leading to more efficient business processes.
