Peazy PDM

The company where I work, Brink BV Harskamp, makes injection molds for packaging products. However, I couldn’t work very well with their ERP system. My escalated hobby began to itch and so I started to study the possibilities of Node.js and Electron.js. The combination of these two frameworks makes it possible to develop desktop applications with the well-known web techniques such as html, css and javascript. So I was able to get started quickly and efficiently because in that time, these languages where most familiar to me. From that moment on I have built my own tool into a concise PDM system with all kinds of handy engineering-focused features to make my workflow at Brink engineering much more efficient and fun. It combines data from the original ERP database with project folders and files on the server, shows summaries parsed from Excel documents and performs basic file handling and versioning.
