Database developments

The Trimension series are the database developments of Boenig and Kallenbach

 

The concept of Trimension databases

The Trimension series is a concept making it possible to develop databases extremely quickly and flexibly according to your requirements.

Let us tailor your database to suit.

Together with you we will produce a tailor-made database application according to your special specifications. The applications so far of the Trimension series were developed in close co-operation with the later users.

Smaller applications are in general implemented the same working day and directly ready for use thanks to modem transfer. The basis of all developments is the database system 4th Dimension, the standard of relational database development systems on Apple Macintosh.

 

Database development

 

The common properties

 

Treatment of the data sets is always logically specified through the object-orientated concept. Just like in a normal work procedure, you first select the data sets and then determine the actions that are to be applied to the data sets.

Each module of the Trimension series has an identical, thoroughly structured user interface so that only short familiarisation times are necessary for new database components.

The modules of the application can be easily opened using the palette.

Each module of the application is represented by an icon on the palette and can be opened with a single click. As the palette is always open as the top window, more than one module of the application can be opened directly.

Integrated online help and balloon help can be inserted on request.

 

 

The standard database functions

 

The standard database functions such as New, Alter, Find, Sort, Delete etc. are available in every area with a button or menu item.

A wide range of print functions and generation of individual reports, adapted evaluations and specific statistics can be implemented.

As default all import and export functions of the data are included for all areas. Further import and export functions to all other programs can be implemented.

Comprehensive password protection on several levels is an important component of the security concept in the Trimension series. For example individual functions or modules can be made accessible only to individual users or "user groups".

 

 

The course of development

If the time window of the project permits, specifications should be compiled first. These specifications, usually 50-80 pages of extremely detailed descriptions, contain all definitions and functions of the database development in great detail.

On request a module or task can be included as a test programming. The specifications also contain a complete list of costs as well as details of the development and delivery time. The costs of the specifications are reimbursed if further orders are placed.

In order to be able to guarantee further development even without our company, you can on special request be given the entire source code of the development so that any other 4th Dimension development company can extend or maintain the programming.

Please contact us at any time with your questions or if anything needs explaining.
