The development of a metering reporting system
MetadataShow full item record
The current Metering Reports application at Ineos Rafnes and Inovyn will be outdated when Microsoft ends internet explorer support. No commercially available off-the-shelf product seems to be available for a new Metering Reports application. Hence a new custom-made solution shall be developed. Ineos Rafnes and Inovyn want a solution that pursues the following design for a new Metering Reports application: 1) A one to one replacement that is sustainable for the future 2) A modern application that can be easily modified and maintained 3) An application developed in programming languages known and used by employees of Inovyn and/or Ineos Rafnes. A prototype for a new custom-made solution Metering Reports application has been created based on the current system and user input. A programming language study has been conducted to ensure a sustainable and endurable alternative is selected for the prototype. The Scrum method has been utilized to develop a new prototype where the aim has been to develop a new version of the prototype per iteration. Each version of the prototype has been deployed on a server and tested by the current application users. The result of the development process is a flexible design. The flexibility is arranged in the different operations by having one process for performing desired result dependent upon the information. Resulting in the maintenance and modifications are a more straightforward procedure. The prototype is a custom-made solution that can replace the current system when it is completed. In addition, the prototype has the potential of being a better system in terms of functionality than the current system.
