- Lucas Control. Lucas replaced "7
manufacturing locations ... using 5 platforms, 6 MRP solutions, 6 general ledger
solutions and 6 order processing systems" with MANMAN/HP.
- MANMAN/Insight Demo. Demo of a sales order processing via a
web browser using MANMAN/Insight. Insight uses the powerful technology of
Opal by Infresco. Over my modem connection the screen was very blurry. A
high speed internet connection is recommended.
"In the industry as a whole, there is a clear
move towards desktop-based applications, which are increasingly in demand by users. By
using a client/server approach to integrate the HP 3000 with PC-based applications, we
will be able to satisfy these demands while at the same time continuing to benefit from an
exceptionally stable and robust computing platform"
- Mark Munden, Information Services Manager, Digiplan
Digiplan developed it's own client/server
make to order solution for MANMAN. "We decided that we needed a system that
would allow us to accept a request for a quote in the morning, calculate the price,
process the sales order, manufacture the product and send it out to the customer the same
evening. For this approach to succeed, we would need to derive everything - from prices
through bills of materials to the instructions for cutting the metal - from a single set
of information, without any duplication. Furthermore, we would need to automate
communications as much as possible."
The solution used Linkway ODBC from CSL and Visual Basic.
