Summary

Mercedes-Benz’s Canadian arm reached out to us to assist with upgrades for their Manufacturing Execution System (MES). We upgraded their directory access protocol, enhancing user permissions and navigating their virtual machine.

  • Implementing user permission
  • Manage users effectively

Problem

The Manufacturing Execution System (MES) required an upgrade and was not functioning in an efficient way for users. Permissions were haphazard and made personnel management challenging.

Challenges

The Virtual Machine provided ran quite slowly, and the code was challenging at times to understand. Working through it collaboratively in order to execute the upgrade was the best approach.

Solution

We’ve assisted the MES team with implementing user permission and some new features. This included creating a permission table for them to manage users effectively, and replacing their authorization mode. The LDAP was upgraded to SQL mode, and permissions are now given depending on which group a user belongs to.

Design

Mercedes-Benz has a dedicated design approach, within which bounds we worked to maintain brand integrity. This meant changes needed to be aligned with the creative elements that were already there.
