in reply to Just hammering nails...

I have to say that it is very warming to hear of a fellow trenches coder making inroads with programming to improve efficiency.

I came into this PCB design and manufacturing company simply as a planner to work the pick-and-place machines, and ended up coding simple solutions that saved countless hours of time. Now that I am doing circuit bord design, I am applying those same skills to this side of the company to streamline processes, remove human repetitive tasks with automation, and improve quality.

It is amazing how hard niche market companies work to account for the complete lack of tools to do their most onerous of tasks. And they never even think "maybe we should get ourselves a consultant and see if we can automate any of this." Usually it is someone like you or someone like me that comes in and hammers some nails in to solve the simple problems and show them that the computers are supposed to work for /you/ and not the other way around.

Anyhow, this was a great write up and lets me know that I am not alone in the world.
