Don't try and do everything all at once. One bite at a time.
Yeah, Luckily I already learned this (the hard way). I hope to not repeat the same error.

#1 - Get knowledge about the current status quo, there is a lot of variance and I don't know every permutation
#2 - Trying to get a good feedback from management about which direction do they want to take
#3 - Organize things in "can die a natural death", "it needs a double tap", "we need this and we have to take it with us"
#4 - Once the system has been cleaned up from zombies and not needed stuff, start working out how to improve it
#5 - We'll see when we come there...

Involve the people that will be using your solutions.
That's something I have always tried when programming PLCs for others, nobody know the machine better that the one using it everyday.

If you can steer them to the 'correct' solution and make them think it was their idea, you will get buy-in a lot faster.
That's something I know, but that I don't master (yet)


Thanks for the tips, Matthew Smile | :)

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
