Videos: Automation & Integration of Business & Software Processes
Many organizations have built largely ad hoc processes that may involve, spreadsheets, emails, various software and databases in order to achieve an business objective such as a configured to order price quote or custom proposal. These processes are very segmented, inefficient, error prone and difficult for inexperienced personnel to use. Explore how companies are using EASA for business process improvement by creating web applications that automate and integrate their processes while also benefiting from customized applications that are:
- Easily used by others who do not have to be experienced with the underlying software, process or workflow
- Maintained with complete integrity, version control and security of the underlying intellectual property (calculations, functions, VBA, etc.)
- 100% reliable in operation across the network, regardless of local infrastructure (including mobile devices)
- Access controlled to specific entities and automatically documented with a complete audit trail
No programming is necessary, and unlike other solutions, the underlying software continues to be used rather than being replaced or translated. Typical applications involve databases, scientific, financial, and actuarial software products, as well as office applications such as Excel® and Word. Watch a video to see the easily mastered process for creating EASA apps:
Automating a legacy process by transforming it into an intelligent web app
Despite being well validated and having very high value (often unique) methodologies and algorithms, legacy software is often under utilized due to clumsy user interfaces (text based input files, confusing command line input, etc.) and scarcity of compute hardware capable of running these codes. Watch how EASA enables you to breathe new life into old software.
Automating the design of an engineered-to-order product with an intelligent web app
By integrating several different tools, including Excel, CAD, analysis and database software, non experts can drive a complex process workflow from a simple and intuitive web app. If the requirement can be fulfilled by an existing design, the app automatically identifies it. If a new design is needed, the app embeds expert’s knowledge to ensure design rules are enforced.
Deployment of standardized Mathcad and Excel calculations as collaborative web apps
Math software tools such as MATLAB, Mathcad and Excel comprise the most common platforms for custom calculations and models, but can be difficult to use and also suffer from the typical problems of desktop based software (installation required for end-users, version control, IP security, audit trail, etc.). See how EASA facilitates automation and collaboration.
Encapsulating a CAD and structural analysis workflow into a simplified web app
Significant efficiency gains can be realized by appifying a repeated process used to simulate mild derivative designs. Integration and automation coupled with strict adherence to a design rule based methodology ensures fast and reliable new designs. Not only does this offer efficiency gains to existing users, but enables new and inexperienced users to utilize the modeling technology.
