Maintainence Estimating System
by Lou Galli
MES was a logging and estimating tool for Service Technicians. Techs would go onsite to maintain customer escalators, elevators
and/or moving sidewalkes. Based on the criteria entered into the software tool, cost estimates, required parts and timeframes
could be established.
Application was written in Visual Basic (frontend-GUI development tool) and had a Microsoft Access backend database. When the Service
Technician finished his day, a batch program was run to sync the remote database with the master database residing on the server.
