Austin Software Foundry has worked with manufacturing companies as diverse as those involved in semi-conductor fabrication to those involved in the raw material production of pulp, paper and aluminum. Here are some of the ways ASF has engaged with its manufacturing clients:
Outsourced Application Development
A Fortune 100 manufacturing company had to deliver a common, raw materials system, using common architecture and development processes, to three different manufacturing facilities. The system managed raw material acquisition and disposition; it was required to interface with truck scales and accounting systems that differed at each manufacturing facility. The system also had to accommodate local government transportation and shipping legal requirements.
ASF acted in process management and architect roles, and also supplied senior development staff to the project team. ASF's ASAP was used as the foundation for the development process. AdAPT was used as the foundation for the system architecture.
Austin Software Foundry was engaged by another Fortune 100 manufacturing company to supply turn-key development of a graphical, manufacturing scheduling application for use at a one of the largest smelting plants in the United States.
