Supplier Relationship Management Software Integration

The software was integrated into the Oracle ERP system. I took part in different project steps and worked close to the in-house system's functional users and software developers. The two groups analyzed business requirements, and we made software integration decisions, first from a functional point of view and then from a technical one. I was then responsible for developing web services using the Oracle SOAP Web Service technology and the Oracle PL/SQL to write the web service package. Current-used ERP applications included new features and change requests during the project, which led to the needed Oracle PL/SQL development.

PLM Integration

This project included integrating PLM software into the Oracle ERP system and sending both item and BOM information created on PLM to Oracle. I developed the web service using Oracle SOAP Web Service technology and Oracle PL/SQL to write the web service package. I also built an integration interface using Oracle Forms technology.

Quality Control Dashboards for Production

Prepared several Tableau dashboards for the company's quality control workshops. These dashboards rotate on TVs during the workshops and are open to instant access by employees. Employees can track their weekly or daily transactions, waiting for items or scrap and rework rates. The company received good feedback from the employees.

Tableau Dashboards for a Brazilian eCommerce Website
Created three business-related dashboards for a Brazilian eCommerce website as part of a self-study project. The dashboards give information on sales, shipment performances, and seller performances and use datasets provided by Kaggle.
