** Need a windows based software program that will allow lab workers to input results of various tests performed on each sample. That information will be exported to Access Database. The database will later be querried to create a printable text report.
Additional computers on the network contain results that will need to be attached as files to the main sample page and also be printed on the text report. Examples include digital photos from the microscope. Graphs from spectral analysis etc. I suggest this be accomplished through a simple screen capture.
Perhaps a setup menu would be a good idea so the location of these files and other operation specific data can be entered at the start of the mission. These locations can vary so it should be accessible for easy change.
A prototype program is attached. A coder worked on it before but was unable to complete it. Notes from that coder are also included as an attached file.
I a program that will allow you to open a page, input data, and then move onto another sample with the understanding you may need to move back to a previous sample as a test is completed and results become available.
I also would like a means to print all of this data. Preferably in an easy to understand text format. For example: "Sample 1A1 was received into the lab at(insert time)." Initial pH reading was (insert data). The sample integrity was (insert data). I will create the text if you can create the means to insert the data from the database into it. With this set up I will be able to print a readable lab report. Those attached results and screen captures from other computers should print at this time as well.
The code I wrote to automatically convert temperature celcius to temperature farenhight (and back) is still buggy and needs fixed.
The elapsed mission time will need to be consistant and displayed for each sample form and should start automatically when the program first runs.
I am willing to split the project up if you wish to bid on one aspect of the program but not all of it.
If I really managed to confuse you here, just ask!
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done. 2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request. 3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.
Should work on Windows 98 and higher. If not possible advise in your bid.
