In all modern yarn spinning mills there is a need for sophisticated production information management and decision support tools. Uster Technologies AG is a global technology company that develops and sells software products targeting Quality management throughout the entire yarn manufacturing process. Software currently under development has the goal of changing the classic principle of the “user going to the PC”, to a more modern principle of the “data going to the user”.
A convenient and contemporary approach to provide users with relevant information in realtime is to display it on their smartphone or tablet computer. Until now, Uster Technologies AG has not developed any software for mobile devices, nor has the company experiences with the currently available technologies for Mobile Cross-platform Development. The aim of this study is to assess whether it is worthwhile for Uster Technologies AG to develop competencies in Mobile App Development. In doing so, answers to the following questions will be sought: “What is a good way for start?”, “What are the risks?” and “What are the decision criterions?”
The feasibility study (UsterMobileAlerts_FeasibilityStudy.docx) answers the above questions and serves an important element of the decision for a potential entry into Mobile App Development at Uster Technologies AG. Furthermore, it provides developers at USTER with useful information on getting started. A suitable technology for Mobile Cross-platform Development at Uster Technologies AG is Xamarin.Forms. The developed USTER Mobile Alerts System is a demonstration and proof of feasibility of this technology. Specially developed simulation software generates Quality Alarms, and an App running on a mobile device receives these alarms and alerts the user. The USTER Mobile Alerts App can run on all common Mobile Platforms including Android, iOS and Windows Phone. The App features a minimal user-friendly UI design that complies with Uster Technologies own Style Guide.
