Abstract

This report describes the porting of a manufacturing quality control system from PC-type computers operating on Microsoft DOS, Microsoft Windows 95, and IBM QS/2, to updated PCs operating on Microsoft Windows NT. The changes included adapting the control software and I/Ocard drivers from 16-bit requirements to 32-bit requirements. Real-time response was a critical issue. The programming environment was also changed to better integrate the modules and languages.
