Terminal Computer Systems, Inc.
1986-1990 Directed the sole outsource computer
group for CMT Systems, a Bechtel/CMT startup. The startup specialized
in automated material handling systems for break-bulk marine cargo.
I interfaced to the startup owners, facility operating contractors,
and assembled and directed the dedicated MTCS staff that grew to over
30 people. I directed the entire staff which provided system integration
for the complete startup business including: computer implementation
schedules, requirements, specifications, fixed priced software estimates,
software development, integration, training and required staffing
levels for various projects worldwide. To meet long term startup objectives;
I successfully transitioned the staff to C++, object oriented development,
and CASE tools.
