Computer numerical control programmer, Allen Beaver, Atlas Copco Secoroc, LLC, Dallas, TX
I am a computer numerical control programmer with a company that produces tricone rockbits, raisebore cutters and HDD bits for the mining and construction industries.
File Search Assistant allows to cut down time spent collecting information
In my work we have to do A LOT of work with text files, and FSA has really cut down our time spent collecting information. For instance, if we need to know how many 12 1/4″ bits use a 1″ boring bar in production, we can search for all the 12 1/4″ first, then we can search inside those results for the 1″ Boring Bar. This has really had a BIG impact on our time spent researching things like this. The ability to search results from a previous search is HUGE for us.
We purchased FSA about 4 months ago, and I’ve used it every single day since we added it to our software package. As a CNC programmer, I do a ton of work with text files, and FSA has really helped me be quicker and more efficient at collecting needed information from all our programs. The ability to search the results of a previous search is HUGE for us, and has made winnowing out information a heck of a lot easier. And as good as it’s been for us so far, we’ve only just scratched the surface of what FSA is capable of. It has a ton of great features that anyone who deals with text files every day will love. It’s a great tool that doesn’t break the bank.
