Automation Implementation Options

Javelin provides a variety of implementation options to meet your specific requirements and budget. The options fall into these two categories:

Option #1: Empowering customers to create an Automation system

One of the best options for you to get the most out of DriveWorks is to learn how to use the system and then with our assistance you can easily capture design rules and integrate your own processes. You will be able to manage the system so if your design rules or business processes change in the future you will have the skills to modify the system accordingly.

Typically, with this option you would undertake a customized five day training course. The first three days you will learn the basic automation functions, and the final two days are spent working on your own business application.

Javelin will provide assistance during the system development to ensure that your automation project is completed in a timely manner.

Option #2: Javelin creates and delivers your Automation system

The other main option you can choose is for Javelin to develop a complete ‘turnkey’ application, deliver, install and train your users in its use and upkeep. Typical customer projects have taken between 4 and 12 weeks, the completion time will depend on the complexity and scope of your project.

System services we can provide within a project scope are:

  • SOLIDWORKS model, assembly, drawing creation to support the automation application.
  • Data table creation either in Excel or Access or SQL to support the application
  • Business Systems integration services (e.g. MRP or ERP integration)
  • Macro/programming services (integration of ‘other’ applications used in your business)

The advantage to this implementation option is that you receive a completed system and will save you the distractions of trying to maintain your day to day business operations.

Whichever option you provide Javelin will be able to help you with the development and deliver an automation system in a timely fashion.
