Batch Rock Star Moment
We’d done a system platform upgrade for the customer a few months ago, but now they were having issues creating new recipes. So we immersed ourselves in the code and carefully traced and debugged the recipe creation routines. It turned out the code wasn’t the issue – missing data was the culprit. But that didn’t matter; our job is to make it work – even better than expected. We identified the problem, the issue permanently disappeared, and our customer created new recipes for their new product launch. More moments
