App for factory material tracking (Eindhoven)

Category:                           Internship
Education level:                 BSc/ MSc Computer Science or related study

Context
Prodrive technologies is a developer and manufacturer of world-class electronics. It comprises over 900 employees and is one of the fastest growing companies in Europe.

Our organization is based on two groups: Development and Operations. The Development department is oriented at developing first-rate electronic, mechanic and software solutions. The operations department is responsible for production, assembly, testing and life-cycle-management of electronic products and systems in the range of 1 to more than a million pieces per year.

Assignment
With more than thousand different products being produced at Prodrive, tracking all moving materials can be a difficult task. That is why Prodrive needs the help of an app developer that can simplify the control of these material movements using the employees phone.

Locations where material has to be traceable are already known in the back-end system, together with the barcode identifiable materials. The task of the student is to come up with a solution in the form of a smartphone application that is capable of (un)linking the location to the material when required.

Deliverables

  • Smartphone application;
  • Tests to verify the implementation.

There are only few companies in the world of technology which stand out. Prodrive Technologies is one of them.

Currently the total Prodrive Technologies organization consists of 900 highly skilled employees (770 FTE), who are motivated, focused and result oriented of which more than 400 engineers work in development.
