Task:

Develop a desktop application for;

  1. Displaying the properties of the steel section from the given database.

  2. Appending properties of new steel section(s) to the current database.

Description of Task:

  1. A database (SQL) of steel section(s) is given in a tabular format (2nd point in ‘Procedure to complete the task’ below). The typical steel sections include, I, Angle, Channel sections. (The properties of the steel sections is provided by the Indian Standard, IS 808:1989)

  2. Develop a desktop application with a GUI (preferably using PyQt). You have to use the MVC pattern for the application architecture and concepts of Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) in the project.

  3. The functionality of the desktop application will be as follows;

    1. To display a list of steel sections currently available in the database (steel_sections.sqlite). (The sections can be designated by the ‘designation’ available in the steel section database)

    2. Once the user selects the designated steel section, all the properties related to that steel section should be displayed in the GUI in an appropriate order.

    3. If the user wishes to add/append a particular section data to the database he should be able to define the section (designation) and other relevant properties in an appropriate manner. (It is important that the section properties are appended in a correct sequence to the database). A sample data of the new steel sections are given in the ‘new_sections.xlsx’ file.

    4. Example:

      1. The file where data needs to be appended steel_sections.sqlite

      2. The file from which data needs to be picked for appending new_sections.xlsx

      3. For example, If you want to append the data of Id number 17 from the ‘new_sections.xlsx’ (MB 550) to the ‘steel_sections.sqlite’ file, then the resulting file should look like this (all the data related to MB 550 is appended appropriately, see Id number 10)

    5. An easy to use, user-friendly and clean looking GUI application would help the user to quickly adapt to the application.

  4. Create an installer (Windows or Ubuntu) for your application.

Procedure to complete the task:

  1. Read the task description carefully. If you have any discrepancy regarding the task please send us an email at contact-osdag[at]fossee[dot]in
  2. Clone this repository for the steel sections database.

  3. Start working on the project as per the description mentioned above. You have to maintain your project on a version control system.

Submission:

  1. Create a Github Account or Use your existing one.

  2. Create a new repository in your Github Account for this task called fsf_2019_screening_task3

  3. Send the Link of your github repository to contact-osdag[at]fossee[dot]in with the subject 'GitHub link: FSF 2019 Screening Task 3'

  3. The results for the above two steps should be the same :

    1. Watch Spoken Tutorials of eSim, in order to understand how to use eSim.

    2. Launch application from terminal

      1. cd src/frontEnd/-> run python3 Application.py for your code; and

      2. cd src/frontEnd/-> run python Application.py for reference code.

    3. Application should launch without any discrepancies after changes as demonstrated in the Spoken Tutorial.

    4. New project creation should not produce errors and adhere to the naming conventions.

    5. Dependent applications (keep the same versions of kicad and ngspice mentioned in install-linux.sh) should launch wherever required(kicad when editing schematics, ngspice when simulations are to be carried out).

    6. Ngspice plots and python plots should appear when simulations are performed for examples provided [Illustrated in Spoken Tutorial]. Choose any example of your preference for testing your code.

Submission:

Send the link of your github fork to contact-esim[at]fossee[dot]in with subject “FSF_2019_Python_eSim”.
