    •  Working at ESO, Munich on redeveloping their Scientific Archive; a repository for all the astronomy observations made with their optical and radio telescopes. The current archive had evolved and there existed many fragmented elements to the solution. My role was to elicit the requirements for the new system and develop a coherent UML based framework that would support current, future and over the horizon archive assets and capabilities. In detail my work has covered …

    Ø      System requirements elicitation from a large number of, often conflicting, sources

    Ø      Creation of a metadata dictionary to describe the archive assets.

    Ø      Binding System requirements to Use Cases 

    Ø      Development of UML class diagrams, statecharts and activity diagrams using Rational Rose Enterprise edition, with emphasis on correct allocation of responsibilities to ensure framework longevity.

    Ø      Elaboration of Use Cases into detailed sequence diagrams illustrating the adaptability of the framework.

    Ø      Work products developed under Linux and Windows.

    •  Working at Rockwell-Collins, Heidelberg on the CH53GA programme to provide, in a very short timescale, a completely new avionics management system for the German Army’s CH53 helicopter. My work is focused on the Communications subsystem - it controls 4 radios and associated crypto / secure loading devices via 1553B. My work has covered …

    Ø      System requirements elicitation (using DOORS).

    Ø      Ada95/83 implementation under Unix of Harel statecharts and Saturn (Frequency hopping) functionality.

    Ø      Design of approximately 100 formal subsystem (CSCI) tests

    Ø      Design and development of a small test oriented meta language.

    Ø      Development of a Python based parser to automatically generate test executables from the meta language based test design document.

    Ø      Augmentation of existing python test environment to analyse 1553 bus traffic.

    Ø      Extension of C++ classes for Ethernet Packet/SMB file sniffing on dual redundant bus architecture and subsequent integration into python based test environment.

    Ø      Work products developed primarily under Linux and to a lesser extent under Windows. Clearcase, Clearquest, Aonix Ada, Greenhills C++, VxWorks, Python were all exploited in this development targeted at multiple PowerPC processors.

    •  Creating proof of concept for a lightweight performance modelling tool. Creation of a novel meta model based ‘execution engine’ that encapsulates the semantics of object based execution via coloured Petri nets. The performance model is directly derived from the Users UML model with little or no additional information being required to ‘execute’ the model and gather performance characteristics. The proof of concept was prototyped in Eclipse Java.

    •  Architect at Phillips for a secure digital media execution framework to be deployed on a family of personal entertainment devices. The framework, modelled entirely in UML, allowed the rapid creation of new entertainment devices merely by constructing a workflow of framework components. Because of very limited target resources the framework was carefully, and successfully, targeted to an entirely non-OO, C based implementation (Greenhills ARM binding).

    •  Principal analyst at KBC for an Insurance Product Factory Toolset, aimed at supporting the rapid design and deployment of new/existing insurance products. Layering and prioritisation of the requirements conducting numerous end user interviews. By truly understanding the user needs we have been able to create a powerful extendable and adaptable meta model. Creation of the domain object model and demonstration of the framework by means of rapid J2EE based prototypes. Extensive use of OCL in formalising the possible meta model collaborations.

    •  Participation in an EU Research Framework project, “CALIM”, investigating the possibility of automating/supporting the migration of legacy systems to new service oriented architectures. Development of ‘Use Case state equivalence’ techniques to show/allow the incremental transition between legacy and new solutions. Unfortunately the Prime member of the consortium decided, part way through the project, to withdraw and the project was suspended.

    •  4 years analysing and designing DASA’s (now EADS) ‘entry level’ Air Traffic Management solution using Visual C++, UML, CORBA (Orbix2), OEW, Rational ROSE, POET OODBMS and McCabe toolset. Elicitation of requirements, analysis, architecting and CORBA consultancy on this large (400+ problem space classes) ATM system. Led team of 5.

    •  Development of Informate’s bespoke Resource Profiler suite of software.

    Ø      The system aims to ‘scientifically analyse’ a candidates CV (without imposing ANY formatting restrictions on the CV layout) by using time-series signal processing and ‘kalman filter tracking’ techniques to create both technical and personality profile predictions that are compared against representations of both the job request and stereotypical profiles.

    Ø      This is realised as a collection of some 30 or so large-grained components and workflow managers, that collectively parse and (re)profile up to 4000 CVs per day; transparently maintaining contact with the consultants; intelligently searching for new candidates using ‘Balanced Scorecard’ techniques; managing the legal aspects necessary for consultancy missions; organising consultancy reviews and arranging invoices/payments.

    Ø      The components were developed in Visual Basic, VBA (for Word, Access, Excel and Outlook), T-SQL Stored procedures, Triggers, SQL Server 2000, Webl and Rebol.

    Ø       In addition a set of framework components have been developed that transparently load balance the deployment of the components amongst a ‘farm’ of servers allowing 24x7 operation with minimal intervention.

    •  Development and initial deliveries of the following Informate training courses’ : “Introduction to Object technology”; “Business Process Modelling with UML”; “Object based analysis and Design with UML”; “Component Modelling”; “OO Design patterns”; “OO Development Process”; “Designing CORBA based solutions”; “Orbix/C++ implementation”, “C++ Prog. Lang.” and “Tangible Software Reuse”.

    •  Developing a EAI proof of concept for Aerospatiale using CORBA technology. Exploited Orbix, Visibroker, Visual C++ and Java.

Target was DEC Alpha.

    •  Requirements elicitation and analysis of the Radar Data Processing Domain. The domain included plot to track correlation and creation, Manoeuvre detection, Radar and RADNET management. Approximately 600 requirements were discovered through discussion with Radar domain experts and examination of the existing system’s code and documentation. Structuring of the requirements and use of State Transition diagrams, to precisely define the system’s complex control philosophies. Analysis of the system’s problem domain component yielded approximately 220 classes and 140 scenarios. Identification of key abstractions. Analysis of Primary and Secondary scenarios to assign responsibilities using Class Responsibility Collaborator (CRC) techniques. Reuse of Object Role and collaboration patterns.
