thesolution Meridian proposed solution was using a Microsoft Access
database. The first part of the system had to integrate with
a product called 'Teleform', which is used to scan the paper
based forms into an Access database.
The QMC application would then manipulate and transform the
data produced by Teleform into a more understandable format.
Screens were developed toenable the users to view and modify
the data before it is committed to the live system.
A number of reports were created which allows the user to request
statistical information in an almost unlimited number of possible
The system was also designed in such a way that when the next
round of quality control forms are produced, the database actually
creates most of the form for the engineer to help reduce the
risk of human error.
