I'm new to this forum, and I would like to introduce myself. I was trying to decide which discussion topic to enter and comment upon (and introduce myself there) but they all look so interesting that I thought I might as well just introduce myself once and get it over with I'm looking forward to contributing to this forum.
My name is Dave Lyon. I've worked in industry (General Electric, Lockheed Martin, United Technologies) for thirty nine years, primarily in the fields of Project Engineering and Configuration Management. Prior to joining General Electric and Lockheed, I was a project engineer for the United Technologies Corporation, where I was responsible for proposal development, system design and test for several engineering development programs, including the Lunar Lander, Mars Viking Spacecraft, CH53E Helicopter, and a few commercial product programs.
I’m the author of :'Transparent CM: How to Get There', 'Practical CM: Best Configuration Management Practices for the 21st Century' and 'Practical Project: Guidelines for Project Engineers and Program Management Personnel'
I provide CM seminars and consulting services to clients throughout North America engaged in the transition from paper based CM systems to automated CM systems. I also serve as the project leader for the Standard CM Certification Team, an international organization whose mission is to establish a standarized CM certification process for CM practitioners.
