Some recent performance tuning highlights include:
- Found a way to rewrite the performance algorithm for the Master Planning Scheduling Engine to produce twenty-minute MRP runs for a billion dollar company. The average high performance MRP run for a large company is three and a half hours.
- Rewrote the Project Module Invoicing process for a company to accommodate a volume of over 100,000 transactions per an invoice. The time to generate a large invoice went from 18 minutes to 15 seconds, saving countless hours in employee efficiency.
