Douglas A. Bauman - Resume

Douglas A. Bauman

Worked as a project team member, mentor and team lead/designer on a wide variety of projects including e-business/enterprise applications, Swing based applications, high-level artificial intelligence (AI) applications and distributed multiprocessor applications. Currently I’m working in a production group as development point contact responsible for maintaining a large suite of successful Enterprise applications as well as for the design and development of new features for the ever growing product line. Other qualifications include work as a lead Java developer at a company which provides ‘Heatmaps’, a web and desktop software analysis tool for the trading desk visualization market (stock market). Another development effort concerned the use of JavaBeans as an interface to Active-X clients as it is applied to business process automation. Also designed and worked with a team to develop a real-time blackboard architecture with advanced control of knowledge sources and their application to total plant diagnostics, incremental rule base development and deployment, inter-process and socket communications, and portable graphical user interfaces. My most recent interests are with respect to Java/SQL for business analysis, visualization and communication, in e-business, enterprise, client server, or desktop application environments.

    • Feb, 2000-Jul, 2001 NeoVision Hypersystems, Involved with the design and development of Java-Swing based Visualization and analytic tool for the trading desk visualization market. The Heatmap tool is designed to cut through the information using simple and effective financial visualization technology. The graphical interfaces give traders, analysts, money managers and risk managers the ability to act on key financial information quickly and effectively. The tool is almost entirely implemented in the latest Java platform, and can be deployed either to the desktop, an enterprise or as a web application. It communicates via the Internet to multiple existing financial data sources for the real-time market information as well as Oracle and other databases.
    • Jan, 1998- Feb, 2000 Signature Solutions (now called Alventive, Inc.), working on advanced business information technology solutions for manufacturing visualization, business process automation, and configuration of product lines. Worked on the development of a Power Switching Center knowledge base and object oriented framework. This Sales Force Automation product configuration module is used by the Siemens Energy and Automation division Sales Force to configure a Power Switching Center either standalone or as part of a Unit Substation in conjunction with a Switchboard configuration development and verification effort. Began work on the application of EJB as the middleware for a Sales Force Automation initiative over the internet and the use of Java Swing components on the client using the web

    • 1980-Jan, 1998 Senior Engineer, Westinghouse Science and Technology Center. Designed and led a team of developers including myself with the software architecture for the Temelin Monitoring and Diagnostic System. This multiple processor real time system provides plant maintenance, engineering and operations personnel with expert information on plant equipment and systems and guidance with respect to phenomenon such as stress, chemistry and vibration analysis. It is based on a centralized blackboard architecture supported by knowledge sources and a control mechanism. I also led a team of engineers with the development of the expert system rule bases and scheduling criteria built on this extensible architecture.

    • Spent several months investigating the Java Development Kit in order to determine its feasibility with respect to extending and porting the above architecture. Actually implemented a distributed client server version of the Diagnostic and Monitoring System based on Java RMI/Sockets.
    • Developed several Visual C++ GUI programs for Windows NT/95, also ported part of the UNIX based blackboard architecture to NT to facilitate its distributed and extensible nature.
    • Developed a portable object oriented Motif based graphical user interface library for UNIX workstations and applied it to several user interface requirements for a Mitsubishi steel plant expert system application. The library was used by other members of the development team.
    • Worked on two diagnostics and monitoring systems including a neutron noise vibration monitoring system for nuclear cores employing digital signal processing (DSP) techniques.
    • Developed an intelligent PC-based training program for power system harmonics.
    • Developed a generic interactive menu graphical user interface based on script files.
    • Worked on a switchboard/panelboard automatic configuration program using OPS-5 and C. This project evolved into additional customer order engineering applications.
    • Developed an expert system shell called MAESTRO and have worked extensively on various expert systems, including a Transportation people-mover rule base, a metal-impact detection system for a nuclear application, and a Gen-Aid, Turbine-Aid expert system for the Power Generation Division.
    • Developed a microprocessor based elevator simulator used to verify elevator controllers.
    • Worked on a microprocessor controlled voice synthesis and voice recognition system for use with elevator and robotics applications
