Jul 2002 – Dec 2003 EDS (Electronic Data Systems)

Team Member of the Solution Centre (Analyst / Programmer / Application Support)

  • Design, development and technical support of the production planning system of SIDERAR SAIC (the major Argentinean iron & steel company).

This system consisted of a C++ application called Steel Planner created by AIS (Austria) and Visual Basic modules written by our team (1 to 3 programmers). These VB modules fed Steel Planner every day with the previous day production gathered from nine different plants and stored in an Access Database. Steel Planner then generated the production plan for the current day that was then shown through a VB GUI application. Some of the features of this GUI included: daily, weekly and even monthly production plan reports, historical reports, statistics, graphs, etc.

The creation of the VB modules required the analysis and simulation or improvement of the decisions taken on by the production managers of each plant. This project also involved data analysis of the information managed by SAP and several proprietary systems of the company.

My tasks also included improving the performance of modules developed prior to my arrival in the team. Through a combination of Object Orientated techniques, Procedural programming, optimization of SQL queries and the analysis of other applications running on the main server, I managed to reduce the response time of the whole system from up to 3 hours to 10/15 minutes.

Many of the modules developed by our team were included into the C++ code of Steel Planner by AIS staff.

  • In my final year in this project, I was Lead Programmer assisting and guiding the young programmers in my team.

Key skills

Visual Basic 6 (with a combination of object oriented and procedural programming), Ms Access, Crystal Reports, basic Windows 2000 administration and batch files creation.

May 2000 – Jul 2002 TESIS

Junior Engineer (Analyst / Programmer / Application Support)

  • Design, development and technical support of SOTR ELCOM90, a real-time communication system used by the electricity industry to transmit information to CAMMESA (the Argentinean electricity commission who supervises the wholesale electricity market).

This software was developed in C modules on QNX 4.x in combination with a Realflex SCADA. The system processed the data following a Scandinavian protocol called ELCOM90 and then transmitted it using the X25 communication protocol.

My colleague and I managed to increasingly improve this system over two years to optimum performance. This platform was used in 16 different locations including two nuclear power plants. We often wrote contracts and proposals for new installations of the system.

  • This role also involved changes in a few C++ modules and consultancy in other Automation projects.

C, C++, Visual Basic 5, Microsoft Access, QNX 4.x, basic electronics knowledge like RTUs and PLCs.
