Zambia's first Copper Concentrate Logistics System on SharePoint 2007
Ok so my workmate Charles and I just finished developing a Copper Concentrate Logistics System on SharePoint 2007. Again we do something that has never been done before in Zambia, on SharePoint!!! So here is how it works: First of all, it’s mainly using SharePoint Lists, Views dependent on your log in credentials, InfoPath Forms that pull their data from the SharePoint list based on specific selection criteria. The marketing dept captures the details of the trucks expected to arrive, only after which, the Security personnel will be able to see the details of the expected trucks and authorize entry. This then allows the truck details on empty weight and on loaded weight to be captured to the same system from the Weighbridge and sealing details confirmed. Only when the weighbridge process has been confirmed, the Security to authorize exit would be able to view the truck details, which they will use for their exit authorization. This piece of a SharePoint system generates various reports by date, by amounts of load, by end users…guys I could go on!!!!
