This is a typical case of implementing information technology in order to assist an enterprise to effectively utilize its production information resources. The enterprise, a world-class leader in Pharmaceutical industry, currently keeps a large number of technical research reports on shared network media. These reports contain scientific specifications extremely essential to the enterprises final products. In order to utilize these reports, a researcher has to navigate and literarly read through each report to identify whether it is relevant to what he/she is currently working on. Often times, researchers find it more feasible to create their own reports rather than wasting time and energy on the searching process. Our solution to the problem is to create an information system which will keep track of these reports, provide a concise synopsis of each report, enable the researchers to search using keywords, and give a direct link to locate that report via a friendly Web-based user-interface.
