The following document is an example of the deployment process and the requirements for each step.
The team behind the TnT2 system implementation is on site making a presentation of the system for interested parties. The presentation is followed by an initial workshop where questions regarding site specific requirements are discussed and a list of must-have improvements is compiled.
In this meeting and workshop users from all aspects of the TnT system should be present:
In the initial workshop a decision is taken whether to implement the TnT2 system on site or not. if the decision is made to implement TnT2 a timeplan is made given the must-have improvement list compiled.
This part is handled by the TnT2 implementation team and will occur as follows:
Depending on the must-have improvement list the time required for this step might vary. The crucial improvements that must be implemented before deployment are developed and tested.
A server is preferrably supplied by the Local IT on site, specifications are provided by the TnT2 implementation team. The base configuration is an Ubuntu Linux LTE Server with no desktop environment. The necessary software and updates are installed by the TnT2 development team and the TnT2 system is installed on the server.
All the historical XML manifests are imported into the TnT2 system and a migration script is run to migrate all history- and status information from other systems.
The explosives scanners on site are updated with the new scanner app as instructed in the Scanner installation section of this wiki.
This part is performed on site by the involved staff and responsible roles.
The following roles are recommended to staff:
The same person or persons can share roles but all of these roles should be staffed.
A short introduction/education for the end-users who use the explosives scanner and the staff that will use the TnT2 client is held.
The system is deployed. The first action in the TnT2 system should be a system wide stock inventory on all store rooms to get all the status information up to date.
The TnT2 team will be on site for a day doing a deployment followup, making sure everything runs smoothly.
Site takes control of the maintenance and support organization for the TnT2 system in accordance to the system roles assigned.
