PAST PERFORMANCE ON THE DIMHRS PROJECT
Project/Contract Name Boat-loader, C-LOGISTICS, Grand Isle, LA
Project Description. LCSI is assigned to automate the process of tracking inventory items that needed, shipped or returned, to and/or from, the oil platforms. All of the shipping process starts from one central place called ICLOGISTICS. The actual shipment of supplies is performed by contracted supply boats that routinely visit the platforms. Business Systems Analysis is performed to establish current manual business processes. We used an object oriented programming language to actually write the software, but many business tasks in the MOBIS Special Identification Numbers (SINs) had to be performed before we could reach our level of writing software.
LCSI is tasked to write a software package that tracks incoming and outgoing supplies for the oil platforms located in the Gulf of Mexico. These supply orders are stored in tables and assigned an estimating shipping date as well as information on the location of the offshore rig, type of rig, whether there is a pickup from the rig, estimate overall weight of delivery, as well as, the estimated weight of items returned to port. This is only a few of the obstacles that had to be overcome before writing one line of code. A Tension Leg Platform is an oilrig that floats on the top of the water and is secured by cables that are anchored on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico. Only certified Tension Leg Platform (TLP) vessels equipped with GPS systems that control the steerage of the vessel are certified make deliveries to a (TLP) rated plat-form, so information about each type of supply boat is stored into our database. Each supply boat is certified to carry a different amount of weight and is equipped with a different amount of mud tanks. The correct boat information must to be stored in tables of our database before a delivery selection is made. The selected boat must be available, must handle the weight for the amount of supplies sent and returned from the off shore rigs, must have the correct number of mud tanks on board, and must have the correct TLP certification. The Gulf of Mexico is divided into color codes and sections. This map information is used to determine vital shipping and scheduling information. Latitude and longitude information for each rig location is also stored in tables to maintain delivery information for each platform location. This information is stored to aid supply boats to accurately deliver supplies.
Our business processes written for this project, allowed our company to write software that would accept orders from the off-shore rigs, schedule the correct type boat for deliver of orders to the rig. While solving issues of weight on the boat to maintain safety, determine whether the rig requires TLP Certification or not, determine whether supplies or equipment needs to be returned from rig to shore, determine availability of the required supply boat.

Project/Contract Name Website Project
Project/Contract Name Website Project, New Orleans Public Schools (NOPS), Title I, New Orleans, LA
Project Description. Little Computer Solutions, Inc. designed and wrote the web site for Title I and every department under Title I for the New Orleans Public School System (NOPS).
Project/Contract Name Automate Raw Material Quality Assurance Program
Project/Contract Name Automate Raw Material Quality Assurance Program for Ormet Chemical L.L.C. located in Burnside, LA.
Project Description. Little Computer Solutions, Inc. (LCSI) provided Ormet Chemical Corporation with a database system that recorded the measurements of chemicals used in the process of creating Aluminum alloy products. The chemical properties of the raw materials used in the creation of the aluminum products must be within a certain tolerance range before creating a successful batch of aluminum products. This process was originally a manual process. Little Computer Solutions, Inc. (LCSI) automated this process of validating the measurements of raw materials needed to complete a successful batch and store the results in a database to perform calculations. Determining, whether or not, the raw materials could be successfully used to create a batch of aluminum products. Tolerance reports are created from chemists entries into a table of the database. Critical tolerance reports are then created by using the data accumulated in the database. The program, written by LCSI, performs difficult calculations that mimics the manual testing procedures. The reports that are generated from the program significantly reduced the manual process of determining whether the raw materials fall within the allowed specifications.
