Project Description

MSDS PDF Document Properties project

The purpose of this project is to create software that will read a MSDS document in PDF format, and put specific data elements from the MSDS sheet in the PDF document properties box.

You must have the ability to search process PDF documents in a folder, or folders, subfolders, sub-sub folder etc.

You must sort your documents based on which fields you were able to match, and any possible combination of matches:

All 5 requirements

requirements 1,2,3,4

requirements 1,2,3

etc.

The minimum goal is to match requirements 1, 2, 3, and 4. There will not be very many documents that match #5.

I will provide a file of all CAS numbers for you to match.

There are five data elements that we will be searching for in each document:

1. Company Name

2. Product Name

3. Most current date on the document

4. CAS numbers

5. GHS compliant.

For every string, ignore not alphanumeric’s, such as ; : - . etc.

replace all comma’s with a space (so ABC Company, Inc. will be ABC Company Inc)

1. Company Name - placed in the Author field:

Look for a string, only on the first page of the pdf document, that looks like a company name, so it has one of the following (with a non-alpha before and after) :

company

companies

corporation

enterprises

laboratories

laboratory

labs

corp

co

llp

lp

llc

industries

ind

international

or, if there is not a match above, it has a string immediately following:

3. Most current date in the document- place in the Subject field. Search for all of the dates found in the document utilizing the date formatting criteria used in the date changer program, compare the dates found, and keep the most current.

4. CAS numbers - place in the Keywords field, one per line

All CAS numbers will be in a format like this: x-x-x, where there is one or more number for each x. (ex. 23-1122-221, or 113-23-1223). I will provide a list of CAS numbers for you to compare the number found. If the CAS number sequence matches a CAS number on my list, then place that CAS number in the Keyword field. There may be 0, 1, or many CAS numbers on each MSDS.

5. GHS version MSDS - Place the word “GHS” in the Keyword field. You will search the document for one or more strings of text, and if those strings match exactly, you will put the word GHS in the Keyword fiels.

PLEASE LOOK AT THE ATTCHED FILE FOR SAMPLE DOCUMENTS THAT YOUR SOFTWARE WILL BE SEARCHING THROUGH.

We will only consider bids under $500 USD

Funds will be place in escrow for the project
