On-line guide checks Year 2000 chips

PRACTICAL GUIDANCE was launched this week to help firms check that computer systems they use or supply are Year 2000 compliant.

Construct IT, based at the University of Salford, has brought together senior managers from across the industry to draw up its Year 2000 health check - now available free and over the Internet. It will be followed by seminars in the autumn.

Checklists enable firms to identify whether their IT and embedded chip systems will have a problem interpreting the date at the turn of the millennium, and help prioritise remedies.

Construct IT manager Derek Blundell added that with firms increasingly working in partnerships, with integrated IT systems in common, the worry was whether their systems would work together when interfaced.
