Project Name: Automation of the Product Code Set-Up Process
Graduate Student: Gary Cheung
As orders are received, new product codes have to be set up taking into account cost and yield targets. Product codes are then assigned to different materials. The process to create these codes varies depending on the type of order. Consequently, as more and more orders arrive, it will be harder to stay on top of things. This project’s objectives are to standardize and streamline the set-up process. Through the use of automation software the ultimate goal is to have a stand-alone computer with the user inputting the material numbers of interest and then letting the computer create and assign the appropriate codes on its own.
