Abstract

Our project goal was to produce a visual management system for the MMD-2 and VMC-5 machines at Primetals. We defined the relevant key process indicators (KPIs), produced a specification detailing the importance of specific KPIs and relevant data. We produced a visual design which was then modeled using python to make a functioning application. We then performed market research and a business analysis to compare alternative software for Primetals. Our MQP deliverables are: KPI specification of important KPIs, a visual design of a screen, an application mockup, market analysis of alternative software options, and a business analysis of selected companies. After conducting qualitative, quantitative and business analysis we concluded that Predator MDC is the preferred software alternative.
