Thor assists defense contractor in award winning automated shop floor system 

One of the largest defense contractors in the United States needed to develop an automated shop floor system for the manufacturing control and assembly of the F/A-18 fighter aircraft. The client wanted a distributed workstation environment to deliver the final product. The company’s technical staff was consumed with other projects. Due to this lack of resources, the project manager was experiencing difficulty finding quality UNIX administrators for the project. Thor consultants had successfully assisted on projects in the past, so the Technical Manager contacted Thor for help.

Using our in-depth consultative approach to identify business challenges and recommend matching business solutions, Thor developed a team of four quality UNIX administrators who possessed application-coding experience as well. Because the Technical Manager was so impressed with each individual, he felt comfortable rotating these individuals to assignments and the project proceeded. As time passed, the project became much larger than first expected, and the four consultants from Thor, became the core staff for the two-year implementation. These Thor professionals were key to the successful implementation of the shop floor system, for which the Navy gave the company an award.

Thor assisted our client through the entire process, understanding the requirements and realigning activities, so that the client could complete the project successfully. This has resulted in a long lasting business relationship that exists to this day.
