Developed at M.I.T.
Mitrol was originally developed in the 1970's by a group of software visionaries from the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Their goal was to design a state-of-the-art management
system with tools that allowed the user to easily develop, maintain and customize business
applications. The developers utilized the fourth generation language concept in creating the
system in order to take advantage of its powerful productivity capabilities. Originally developed
for the user side of large manufacturing companies, Mitrol included unique functionality
to aid in the planning and modeling of complex data structures.
Acquisition by General Electric
In 1980, General Electric acquired Mitrol and for the next five years thereafter invested over $40 million
developing it into a fully functional database management system. Mitrol became a comprehensive,
highly advanced software solution for both DP/MIS and the end-users. In 1984, General Electric
decided to discontinue its activities in this software business and transferred Mitrol to
Teamco, which has since continued to invest millions of dollars in the ongoing development
and adaptation of the system.
Evolution of the System
The Mitrol system and development tools were first used in the
1980's by Fortune 500 companies to build extremely flexible and
powerful in-house applications. Later Teamco decided to utilize
its know-how and the experience of its large industrial customers
with Mitrol to develop highly sophisticated manufacturing, financial
and Internet applications, written entirely in the Mitrol language.
The target market for these newer applications are smaller and
medium-sized companies, as well as Mitrol's original base of larger
industrial companies. Although these newer applications for smaller
companies will be turnkey packages, they will be extremely flexible
and will be easily to adapt and customize (a significant capability
in times of constantly changing conditions).
Using Teamco's flagship product, MITROL, and Application Products
written in MITROL, our clients benefit from:
- a semantic schema wherein the company's policies and procedures can be modeled and enforced
- completely customizable Material Requirements Planning by program, division, or customer
- real time access to all levels of a bill of materials or an accounting structure
- an Application Development tool that responds to the changing needs of a company quickly and accurately
- a non-procedural data manipulation language combined with a semantic schema giving brief and powerful code
- writing brief but powerful code using the in-built functions of the languages
- product bill of material maintenance with low level code checking is built into the Mitrol language
The aim was to develop an easily customized application development tool. Today, Teamco offers not only the development tool, Mitrol, but
also highly sophisticated manufacturing and financial applications written entirely in the Mitrol language. Many of our clients have been
using Mitrol for more than 10 years (some of them for even more than 15 years) and continue to expand and change their systems.
