The Philadelphia Visual FoxPro User Group meets next Tuesday, March 14 with a special treat, a tour of the Smooth-On plant in Macungie, PA. The meeting will begin at 7 PM, but come as early as 6:30 PM for dinner, which the group will provide. (If you?re coming for dinner, please email tamar@tamargranor.com, so we get enough food.) The address is: Smooth-On Inc. 5600 Lower Macungie Rd Macungie, PA 18062 Abstract: Smooth-On is a large chemical manufacturer that recently moved into a new facility just south of Allentown. Prior to the move, we used VFP to do Order Entry, Inventory Control, Purchase Orders, Formula Management and Batch Scheduling, among other things. When we made the move, we took it to the next level and used VFP to Automate much of the manufacturing process. This tour will be conducted by the COO and explain the process, show examples of the types of things are made with our products, and discuss the benefits and challenges of the transformation.
