Greetings from the Factory: Software Expert Tomi Hirvonen
I design PC software and architectures for Iso- and Mega-Fixu products as part of a software development team.
The majority of my working hours go to planning meetings and software engineering. Once a project has reached the development stage, my workdays involve programming and module testing.
Near the end of the development stage, we begin integration testing to ensure the functionality of different software components, storage robots, box routes, and data systems as a whole. Extensive testing does take up a lot of time at this stage, as we strive to guarantee the quality of our products.
We aim to design our software so that it is easy to use and to utilize customer feedback as much as possible. At the Fixu user event last year, we noticed that many of the improvements proposed by customers regarding the Iso-Fixu software were already underway. This showed that we were going in the right direction, thanks to our whole team!
When the first medicine package went around the Iso-Fixu storage with the new software. I have not worked with robots before coming to NewIcon, so it was great to see how the software, the robot, and pharmacy data systems interoperate in practice. At the same time, I felt somewhat proud to be part of a highly professional and innovative software development team.
