At our company we currently use a piece of (buggy) software.
It is used to take results from other applications (the result is duration) and multiply this with the hourly rate,
I know that the latter is possible, I am interested in the first task. I’ve written out the current workflow.
The current app loads a xml file, in this xml the location of a 3D cad model is stored.
The current app opens a second application, and opens the 3D cad model. Then it performs a task, which results in a certain cycle time. After the task is complete, the cycle time is sent to the first application and the second application is closed.
Inside the first application, the cycle time is multiplied with the hourly rate.
I would like to know if the opening of another application and performing the task above, is something that can be done with Electron.
