“After a first short but successful involvement in a smaller project, we asked Peter Burgess to work on a larger project to design and develop our own chemical order management system. This system tracks orders, deliveries and matches the received materials with invoices.
The system requirements included that the system should be built using latest web technologies and software development methodologies, but at the same time avoiding complicated and costly solutions, both in building and on-going, to allow easy maintenance in the future.
The project required several iterations, starting from an initial prototype to provide end users with a test bench where they could further develop the business requirements at the same time that they defined their business processes.
During the whole project, Peter showed that he is a very talented and skilful professional, with deep understanding of the technologies used and also on Software Development Lifecycle methodologies.
The project started with fairly simple requirements, but it involved several iterations where Peter worked in close contact with ICT management and end users, so he was able to quickly roll-out a new release including the new requirements.
The results are a system that end users are very happy with, since they participated in its definition during the whole project and their feedback was always taken into account.
From a technical perspective, the end result is a system easy to maintain and support, flexible and scalable, ready to be used in similar plants when required.”
