There are several projects of workflow automation developed for Ukrainian
At the beginning of 90-th, when state institutions of Ukraine started
to emerge, there occured a unique opportunity — the possibility to
develope computerized systems “from scratch”. The first project
was designed for State Patent Office of Ukraine. Our team
designed the database structure, software specification and business
case, then developed programs of the first stage.
This big project included eight subsystems and more than 30 software
Larger part of the prototype systems of that time were presented as
an expensive solutions based on the mainframes. Using that experience
we had developed client/server architecture based on the distributed
network computing and on use of relatively inexpensive servers and
Another project has been developed for Shipping Register of Ukraine.
We designed the integrated database structure and software specification.
This work was interesting because of particular complexity of its
infological data. Lloyd's Maritime Information Services Ltd (LMIS)
very much helped us by kindly providing information about their database,
what we greatly appreciate.
The project was heavily Internet-oriented. The proposed solution was to
supply ship surveyors with notebooks equipped with specialized software.
The surveyor was able to download the ship's information before inspection
and upload completed check list after inspection.
