Business Growth spurs new Electronic Quality Assurance (QA) System

A fourfold growth in business production over the last four years motivated Zillmere Engineering to develop a new electronic Quality Assurance System with the help of Rohan Maniyar, a Master of Information Technology (Advanced) student from QUT.

The three month project was successfully completed in June and is being implemented across the business with training progressing for staff.

Since its beginnings as a general machinery and repair work company in 1964, Zillmere Engineering now has steel fabrication, aluminium fabrication and special services departments. The major products sold include aluminium hand railing and floor granting for sewerage treatment facilities and public infrastructure.

Rohan’s CEED project with Zillmere Engineering was to design a Quality Assurance system to better meet the business’ growth needs, reduce the manual work involved in documentation and meet the user friendly requirement for multiple staff users of different levels. The project required the programming, designing, testing and implementing of new software.

Rohan applied The Waterfall Model approach to the software’s development.  This involved dividing the whole process into the four separate process phases of: Requirement Specifications, Design, Implementation and Testing.  He had to familiarise himself with the company’s processes and workflows and utilised the already existing database, modifying it with new additions.

Reflecting on the project, Rohan said that one of the most enjoyable aspects was that he could see that it would help deliver higher efficiency and productivity for Zillmere Engineering in managing their Quality Assurance system. 

Systems development is an area of interest and it was good to see how a new QA system can deliver real efficiencies in time and across human resources for the business,” said Rohan.
Rohan said that he also enjoyed working in a real business environment and doing something practical that he had not worked on before.

Rohan is now heading to the University of Adelaide to complete a Masters of Software Engineering.
