Whessoe Varec


I upgraded JBA System21 financial, manufacturing and distribution systems from version 3.2 to 3.4.2 and on to 3.5.1.  This included upgrading existing bespoke work, development of new programs written in RPG/400, CL, DDS and MS Visual Basic, to enhance the standard JBA System21 applications and the installation of PTF’s to the JBA systems.

I designed and developed a sales commissions system which interfaced to the JBA sales order processing application.

I designed and developed a new reporting system based on the JBA Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP) application to provide more detailed information to help the manufacturing plant to be run more efficiently.

I configured TCP/IP on an AS/400 as part of a project to replace a mixed ethernet/token ring network with a wholly ethernet network utilising TCP/IP to communicate between client workstations, the AS/400 and multiple NT servers.

I provided support for all of the JBA System21 applications used within Whessoe Varec, liaised with JBA and installed fixes where necessary.
