New Web Based Production Tracking System Developed by SOHO Prospecting



SOHO Prospecting has developed a new web based production tracking system (PTS) that is used to track workorders on the production shop floor. This Production Tracking System (PTS) is integrated with other internal systems through a Source API interface. This API sends information to the PTS from other internal systems, such as CRM and ERP Order Management, and accepts information from the PTS to update those same systems. Information flow is thus bi-directional.

When information is sent to the PTS from the Source API, PTS sends back an acknowledging System Response and when changes are made to the Status or Stage of Work Orders by PTS users, the PTS sends information to the Source API in the form of a call-back.

The system is made up of two separate applications. The first application is the .NET Service Bus. It handles backend requests, creates data and returns it. The second app is Fulfillment; it is the frontend web interface that networks with the Service Bus and provides a user-friendly experience to the production operators.

The Fulfillment app consists of several features, but it can be categorized as a single-page web application (SPA) because all its functionality is accessible on a single page, giving the user the same experience as that of using a desktop. Both the Service Bus and Fulfillment applications work together to product the functional system.

The Fulfillment app was developed using Twitter Bootstrap, Angular JS, Angular Route and Angular Resource. Twitter Bootstrap consists of pre-defined CSS classes that are applied to HTML code to create a consistent appearance throughout the Fulfillment app. Bootstrap is the resource that forms the controls, page layouts, navigation controls and web components of the Fulfillment app. It also maintains the Fulfillment app's responsiveness thus making it compatible with a wide range of screen sizes and devices.

AngularJS provides the tools needed by the client to use the Fulfillment application effectively. It facilitates loading of webpages without the need to reload each time a client logs onto the system. Angular Route is responsible for defining and redirecting urls. It passes the values entered by the client to the respective pages. Angular Resource makes http requests to the Service Bus, creating, creating, updating, deleting and restoring objects.

The PTS has features that make it very simple to navigate through web based information systems. Such features as Search, Sort and Filter, among others make managing workorders even simpler. In fact, you can get an overview or even print the report of a work order at any stage.

PTS has been developed using the latest web technologies.
