The six weeks included (1) converting all the files and programs (2) doing the manual mods which were supplied by Nexgen (3) running cross checks to be sure the objects came from the correct source--I compared the old source/objects to the new source/objects to be sure I set everything up correctly and that we did have all the source for the objects-- (4) having the IS staff try running every program and selecting every menu option, both BPCS and custom.
