    Using Nokia phone as workstation in wireless network in industrial environment.

    I work in a very large factory. The workers still get their assignments on paper.

    I want to give them a simple and robust mobile device to receive their work instructions, register their hours, close work orders etc. The devices should connect to the server through WLAN. The device should be capable of quickly downloading & opening, editing, saving & uploading an Excel file. This file would not contain a lot of data as such, but will have a small color image.

    I have some experiences in on ERP-systems, but this is mostly new to me. I need a ball-park idea of costs, to get the ball rolling with my employer.

    Can anyone recommend me a device? Initial tests would only be a few dozen, if succesful we would need up to a thousand. I expect high attrition rates, so cost would be an issue.

    How much work would it be to develop apps for a mobile phone to be used as a simple workstation in MS Access? Ball-park idea of costs?

    Thanks!

    A better approach would be to run a local webserver which is accessed from the mobile devices via the webbrowser. This is almost device independent and you can use almost every current phone model for this.

    You can select NOKIA Asha series phones to make worker workstation as it less price and application oriented.

    The application you looking at this stage is a simple and future, you may add more features like worker training materials through smartphone etc, you can easily configure.So NOKIA Asha series is best choice for you.

    The cost of App would be number of hour estimation multiplied by per hour charge.
