What's Linneo System Homologation Managing
In 1997 CETOC developed, for and on behalf of a note Automotive industry largest importer official cars and commercial vehicles of our country, a first management system and dissemination of homologation data named SIDO. The system provided for a release of the homologation material devices on mass storage-type optical (CD-ROM) accessible through the use of a common personal computer. The media, once established, were distributed by the Mother House to the entire sales network across the national territory. The instrument showed, shortly after, operational expenses, identifiable in the following points:
- the inability to modify and then update the information stored on the media used and the resulting presence of archives not in line with data
- the complex logistics in the execution of updates information: updates data for the approval of vehicles occur at a pace people will not plannable, and coordinabile not compatible with the operating time required for the dissemination of devices containing the same information
- a high cost for the creation and distribution of media to update sales network
- the presence of incomplete information and documentation, due to its structural limit of half used for the transmission of them
Despite these limitations, innovation introduced was particularly appreciated by operators, which proved tolerant towards incompleteness of information available against a quick and easy access to them. This is the situation until 2002, when the service was suspended for the difficult and costly management of the drawbacks mentioned above.
The new system
The need to adapt fully to continue the service demands of operators pushes CETOC in February 2007 after a period of reflection and assessment of service previously described and indeed offered, to innovate completely application hitherto used. He was born the idea, now almost complete, a new instrument, Linneo System Homologation Managing: a computerized system and integrated in a position to respond effectively to the needs of operators, filling the structural limits of his predecessor. Linnaeus H. M. is a Web application Oriented offering, as characteristic, access to a complete archive of approvals, fast, easy to use, and constantly updated in real time. The heart dell'applicativo is made up of a Relational Data Base (RDBMS) within which are properly structured and stored in special tables, all records containing technical data and regulatory vehicles approved. The system provides a web interface that makes available the database using a web browser client. The new application also provides, unlike his predecessor, a number of functions all related to each other and relating the scope of use of the service itself.
The main innovation introduced by this instrument is, therefore, in having moved the delivery and subsequent use of the service from a purely "local" through the use of a computer and CD-ROM, for a more broad and functional, NETWORK, exploiting the enormous potential.
