Enterprise Service Book Application for Multiple Mobile Platforms
The purpose of this thesis was to build an enterprise mobile service book application for Wärtsilä Oyj, a global company whose main office is located in Vaasa, Finland. Wärtsilä is one of the world leading companies in boat engines and power plants.
Wärtsilä has a user manual application for engine information and troubleshooting called Eldoc Server. It was built in ASP .Net. This application is widely used within Wärtsilä employees, especially mechanical engineers who are maintaining and fixing engines every day. In order to increase the portability, mobility and accessibility of this electronic manual, they have requested a mobile version for this Eldoc Server.
The idea of this thesis was to implement an application for multiple mobile platforms which implements the functionally now existing in Eldoc web server such as viewing documents, pictures, videos, etc. Furthermore, it should utilize advantages of mobile devices such as camera, voice recorder, and phone service.
The application was targeted for these platforms: Windows, Linux and Maemo. Qt was selected as a development framework for this purpose as it is a cross-platform framework, meaning that it is possible to code the application once and deploy them across different platforms. Nokia N900 with Maemo OS was the main targeted device thank to its capability, mobility, and reusability.
All objectives of the final thesis mentioned above have been met in the Qt based application associated with this project. Tests have been performed and indicated that all main features work perfectly. The application has been presented with Wärtsilä people and is waiting for their permission to change to production version.
