I'll see if I can find out what it is.  They bought them before I was hired, and
I haven't been directly involved in working with them.  Someone here must know
what they are.

Thanks

Denis,

We have some of the IBM industrial station PC's with touchscreens at a few
plants.  They work pretty well most of the time - we don't seem to have much
trouble with dirt on them.  What seems to happen is that after the first week or
two it's mainly just the "casual" users using them - the more frequent folks
tend to go back to the keyboard/mouse.  Our folks are handling cloth, so we
probably don't get as much of a dirt problem as a lot of others might see,
either.  You definitely need to do that pilot, though.

In fact, the greasy finger syndrom is on our mind. In our particular set-up, it
should not be an issu. Anyway, before commiting a lot of $ to it, we would like
to try it on a limited scale (1 screen). And I dont want to discard this
possibility just because of the "possibility" of dammage caused by dirtyness. If
this project gets caned, it will be because we "proved"
that is was not viable.

So it SOUNDS good and I want to do a pilot to see if it WORKS good.
