A large manufacturing client's Quality Assurance department in Alabama was using a series of home-grown Excel spreadsheets to collect and review various metrics to ensure the quality of their manufactured goods. The lack of scalability caused problems for the team when making changes to the Excel spreadsheets and distributing them to their plants in the United States and internationally. Collecting/scrubbing the data was even more of a challenge and consumed most of their time.
McRae Technologies, LLC worked with Hopper Consulting to build a custom web appplication to replace their Excel spreadsheets. The enforcement of data-validation along with the real-time review/reporting of the data collection freed up a lot of time for them to actually analyze the data and make suggestions to improve the quality of their manufacturing processes.
