Interface between retrofit quotation data and costs database
Project start/end: 01.10.2000 - 01.03.2001
Interface (MS Excel - XML - MS Access - Oracle) for data from the quotation process in the field of retrofitting (modernizing/ optimizing power plant turbines) that is to be used subsequently in central, operative systems (costs database).
This application uses the "Quotation data - costs database interface" (PTA ID 1162). Instead of a direct coupling using MS Excel, there is a loose coupling via an XML structure. The interface covers the exporting/conversion of Excel data to the XML structure, and importing the structure to the MS Access application. The data is then processed further in exactly the same way as the existing interface.
