Chemical Supply Tracking and Inventory
Chemical Supply Tracking and Inventory For Basic Chemical Systems (BCS), FCI developed
an Internet system to track and inventory chemical supply tanks. BCS wanted the
ability to know, at any time, the level of product in any given tank. This capability
currently enables BCS to refill the tanks when necessary, freeing their customers
from the concerns of monitoring and manually re-ordering critical supplies.
FCI worked side-by-side with the BCS hardware team to design the web-based application
and supply the necessary middleware to ensure the timely success of the system.
This project also introduced FCI's proprietary solution for applications using Aeris.net
MicroBurst™ technology for transmitting data packets on control channels in cellular
networks. FCI's solution manages both the forward control channel (FOCC) utilized
for paging, and the reverse control channel (RECC) used for MicroBurst packet transmission.
By taking advantage of FCI's expertise, BCS has positioned itself a step above its
