One of OLAV's core competencies is the extraction and conversion of "Legacy" data. OLAV utilizes a proven methodology for legacy data conversions, documented in OLAV company procedures for Data Conversion Project Planning, Data Mapping, Data Extraction, Data Transformation and Loading, Data Verification and Validation(V&V), and Unit and Cycle Testing Plans. The results of this OLAV methodology for a specific client's project are transmitted to the client on a "closeout CD". OLAV provides this CD as an auditable trail for the project. The CD includes the actual initial legacy data and its source databases. The CD then documents the legacy data mapping rules. Finally, the CD includes the final converted data and its location in the new ERP. The CD also includes the results of V&V testing, such as Inventory dollar and quantity balancing and radiation exposure balancing. This audit trail of configuration management is of high value to our clients, especially those in the nuclear field. OLAV staff members have a heavy nuclear background experience level.
