Software Packages

  • Visual Basic

This control system is part of an order fulfillment application that is designed to scan the barcode on various products after they have been placed into a case, print & apply a license plate label to the case, then scan the license plate barcode to verify that it matches the original product barcode and reject the case if it does not match. The case is then sealed for shipment.

A Visual Basic application was written to provide the graphical user interface as well as code that supports the communication between all packaging line devices via Ethernet. It provides for control of the system, status indication, alarming and current runtime production information. A custom SQL Database is used for data logging information pertaining to the packaging line equipment including downtimes.
