Click Scheduler upgrade

I’ve recently started a new contract as a Systems Analyst working on an upgrade of a ClickSoftware scheduling system from version 7.1 (VB6) to 7.5  (.Net).

It looks like it’s going to be lots of fun. Lots of challenges getting my head around the problem domain (scheduling resources in utilities is not like scheduling trains) but the software seems well thought out and structured.

There are connectors to SAP and a Net-weaver front-end which is new to me so there’s some learning to do there but the base product is .Net so I’m at home with that part.  And most of my role will be analysis whch makes for a change form the heavy coding I’ve been doing recently. I’m starting with a Gap Analysis between the two versions and updating the existing documentation as I go.
