    CV

    Houston, TX; Bilingual; NASA Background Ck: NACI (National Agency Check with Inquiries); Non-Smoker

     

     Seeking position as Project Coordinator, Developer or Quality Assurance Analyst/Auditor of critical processes or applications software.

     Summary:

       Extensive experience in production/maintenance/quality metrics generation and project coordination of the man-rated Space Shuttle Software (SSS).

     Professional Achievements Highlights

     - Received the prestigious “Silver Snoopy Award, awarded by NASA’s Astronaut’s Office for “outstanding support that greatly enhanced the flight safety and mission success of the Space Shuttle Space Transportation System Program”.

     - Led development/deployment/tracking of multiple key upgrades to the NASA Space Shuttle Software (SSS) Development Processes which:

      -- Improved the effectiveness of the Design/Code Inspection Process (i.e. formal Peer Reviews) from finding only 34% of all inserted defects to finding 85% to 100% of all inserted defects in modified code.

      -- Played the major role in reducing inserted defects per 1000 lines of modified code from 13.4 to 0.72 and then virtually 0.

      -- Significantly reduced the cost of correcting software defects by allowing code developers to identify and correct software problems at the earliest opportunity, minimizing the amount of re-work required to make corrections later. 

      -- Provided the model used for systematically applying analogous process upgrades to all other software tools and simulators supporting SSS production, reaping similar quality and productivity improvements.

      -- Helped the organization earn the following awards and certifications: 

        --- George M. Low Quality and Excellence Award, NASA’s highest honor for quality and performance; received twice.

        --- CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration) Maturity Level 5certification, the highest Maturity Level possible under the CMMI model defined by the SEI (Software Engineering Institute) of Pittsburgh, PA.

        --- NASA Excellence Award for Quality and Productivity, the forerunner of the George M Lowe Award.

    - Discovered four previously unknown sub-processes within the Space Shuttle Software Des/Code Inspection process. Results were referenced in a book and in an article in the IEEE journal and helped discern if the collective preparation time of inspectors for an inspection meeting was out of line with preparation time for similar inspections.

     Skills:

      Led and developed various software process improvements in an ISO9000 and CMMI Level 5 certified organization that  produces man-rated, critical software applications:   Project Coordinator, Defect Analysis team coordinator, Software Development Process developer/maintainer/instructor, Software Quality Assurance auditor, Quality Metrics and Statistics developer/maintainer, Software developer/inspector. Bilingual in Spanish.  Computer platforms/tools used: WORD, EXCEL, PowerPoint, Lotus Notes, Documentum, Oracle, JCL and HAL/S.
