Key Highlights



Challenges

It was pain for Crane engineering team in Lindau to manage millions of engineering parts and be aware about inventory stock. Their legacy application had so many navigational items where staff gets lost in searching for any parts. Alternatively, they had to do with excel files which were tedious and prone to errors. Engineers always had the challenge to maintain such a large setup of BOM.

SOME OF THE CHALLENGES –
  • Data is very large to manage.
  • Complex data structure because of Engineering part is built using of hundreds of other parts and the child parts further built using smaller parts.
  • The front end technology of the old tool does not lend itself to upgrade
  • Further searching within results is also not supported.
  • There was no automated solution for analysing current data they had.


Our Solution

The front end technology of the old tool does not lend itself to upgrade and so the Global Application team suggested that the engineers specify several specific tasks that they would like a tool to assist with – and some specific tools would be written against their existing mature data base.


SINGLE PAGE SEARCH –

Millions of data for parts arranged in single page with intuitive UI. With use of 3-4 parameters quick search provided.

ADVANCED SEARCH –

It enabled engineers and users of the application to search extensively using various parameters, auto suggest and drilldown.

DRILL DOWN –

The interface supported drilldown the parts and sub parts to quickly get to the desired part.

ANGULAR JS –

To optimize search and faster results angular JS implemented in which data was fetched through API

EXTENSIVE DASHBOARD –

Extensive dashboard was provided with tabular and visual presentations. Inventory, Faulty Parts, Age Analysis of parts were generated which were highly helpful for internal staff.

MULTILINGUAL FUNCTIONALITY –

Bilingual functionality for elements other than Grids is provided to help engineers to use application in either English or German.
