Special Recognition

S & S Systems Consultants, Inc. has received many certifications for proficiency and awards for projects. Some highlights are included here.

Before founding S & S Systems, Andrew Sobey, Jr. received his BA in Mathematics and a Masters Degree in Computing Science. He had completed both college and graduate school, but his diplomas did not demonstrate proficiency in the data processing industry. Two years out of school he sat for a five-part proficiency test sanctioned by the Institute for Certification of Computer Professionals. He passed all five parts and earned his CDP certificate.

S & S Systems Senior Consultant Andrew Sobey, Jr., CDP, earned the Cutler-Hammer Marketing Award for his work on the introduction of a new line of Enclosed Control. His part in the project consisted of writing an engineering program that produced a bill of material from a smart catalog number. The smart catalog number allowed for more than a million combinations of devices, and a feature of the program allowed for substitution of parts based on 'mods' supplied as accessories. The bills of material that were created were passed to a MAPICS system for processing, and the system could supply bills of material for up to 4 OEM manufacturers.

Senior Consultant Andrew Sobey, Jr., CDP, was part of a team that converted the Westinghouse St. Louis Assemblies plant from a COPICS business system to a MAPICS business system. The project reduced operational costs, freed up 10% of manufacturing floor space, and improved efficiency. The system supported just-in-time manufacturing, KANBAN, and total quality management. The project was submitted to the Westinghouse Information Systems Advisory Council (ISAC) committee for its annual competition of information systems projects, and Andrew was recognized with the ISAC Award for his positive impact on Westinghouse.
