Project Experience
Direct Numerical Control (DNC) of CNC Machine: As my undergraduate thesis, I developed a direct numerical control interface of a (computer numerically controlled) milling machine. The purpose of the project was to make complex surfacing possible using the existing facilities. In the end, a user of the I-DEAS software package will be able to machine complex surfaces directly from the terminal using direct numerical control.
Travel Clinic Invoice Program: It was necessary to automate and streamline the St.Michael's Hospital Travel Clinic vaccination accounting methods. To accomplish this, I developed several Visual Basic programs. The programs were a front end for excel spreadsheets. The two main programs were the Invoice Program and the End of Day Program. These programs went into use April 1st., 1997.
Integration of Robot/CNC Machines: As a third-year university project I was required to write programs to produce a specified part using existing machines. The part feeder, robot, CNC lathe, CNC mill, computer and part receptacle were provided. The programs were written to interact and respond to each of the system's signals. My programs were of exceptional quality.
Computer Skills
Operating Systems: OS/2, UNIX, MS-DOS, Novell Netware and MS-Windows family.
Programming Languages: ANSI C/C++ and assembly experience. Other languages include Visual/VisualAge BASIC, REXX, FORTRAN-77, Pascal, Java and JavaScript.
