Project title: IT based on UNIX MacOSX
Time to complete: 1998 – 2009

Project details: Small factory in Black Forest with a staff of 20. Doing plastic molding and CNC machining. Started our IT on an SGI Workstation serving SSH-Terminals on Macs. Ported IT to MacOSX in 2002, to MacOSXServer in 2009. Programmed in ANSI-C, SQLite, Applescript. Simple text dialog via SSH yet integrates all great graphic features/programs of MacOSX! Comprises of intelligent warehouse management, parts list, production/machine planning, document management, project management, billing, attendance recording, cnc-programming. Simple, slim yet powerful, too often put SAP-Users in amazement.
Resources used: Books on C, SGI-Docs, Apple-Docs, many many O’Reilly publications.
Parties involved: Many and many ideas from my co-workers in production, I did the coding, also my son starting in 2008.
