Modular Aeration Control System (WebMACS)
WebMACS is a compost aeration control and monitoring system comprised of both industrial process control components and custom software. It was already a successful product, but Green Mountain Technologies needed assistance with improving the user interface, adding new functionality and making the product easier to customize for each composting facility.
Cypress Mill Co designed a completely new version of the control software and user interface based on feedback from previous versions.
Automated test coverage was included for both the Lua control code and the React application so that developers could add features and make changes without worrying about breaking existing functionality.
Finally, by architecting clean boundaries between configuration concerns and application features, the new software was able to deliver a customized package for each compost facility which performs reliably and requires minimal effort for each new project.
Since the initial completion of the new WebMACS version, Green Mountain Technologies has delivered customized systems to multiple compost facilities and implemented numerous additional features that were not previously available in the product. Customizations can now be delivered more quickly and with fewer technical issues than before. The collaboration between Cypress Mill Co and Green Mountain Technologies has resulted in a stronger product with better support which allows them to serve and satisfy more customers.
