Established, developed, and managed a new satellite office of Battelle Memorial Institute.  Provided IT support to Battelle’s Mountain View, CA regional office.  Project sponsors include NASA, FAA, VA, and commercial airline companies.  Projects included ASRS (Airline Safety Reporting System), ECS (Engineering for Complex Systems), APMS (Aircraft Performance Measuring System), and NAOMS (National Aviation Operations Monitoring Survey).  BCVOR office also coordinated application of statistical data exploration research by PNNL (Pacific Northwest National Lab).  Performed planning, system design, quality assurance testing, technical writing for user documentation and system technical documentation, requirements tracking, risk assessment, metrics definition, Help files, business process modeling, and Web applications.

 

I worked with the Manager of Battelle’s Mountain View, CA regional office in early 2001 to build the business case for the IT support functions which this new satellite office could perform.  He and I then presented the case to corporate headquarters management in Columbus, OH in March 2001, gained the approval in May, and the office was established in June.  BCVOR office was in the black since its inception, covered 100% under client projects.

Flextegrity is a startup enterprise for taking a patented, breakthrough product in materials fabrication to market. It's "assembled material" is based on Buckminster Fuller’s tensegrity principles. The material is assembled, not woven, into continuous, seamless fabric which has numerous applications cross multiple disciplines and markets.

During July-December 2005 as a consultant, I wrote a scientific whitepaper describing the invention, and I developed an accompanying presentation for the company president. I also researched Federal SBIR opportunities and submission criteria. Most recently, I helped prepare a submission packet for the company to enter a 2006 entrepreneurial competition with the winner receiving substantial angel funding.

EIQA CRM Spec

(Dublin, Ireland)

A consulting project during May-July 2005. EIQA (Excellence Ireland Quality Association) tracks many aspects of its business via a CRM application which they have developed in-house over the years as a VB6 desktop app. Their goal is to convert this mission critical app into a browser-based application so management, employees, and select clients can access it from any location via web access.

 

The first stage involved parsing a general system description document to identify all the separate requirements contained therin. With that as an outline, we developed a system "wireframe" using a combination of ASP, Dreamweaver, and VB.Net. A shell for each page was integrated into a graphical site map. On each page, requirements and other specified functionality could be added as a clearer definition of the system was derived.

This specification was used by EIQA management to solicit bids from local developers for implementing the new system, integrating it with the legacy databases, and producing operational and management reports.
