is an experienced project manager and proficient programmer. A good
strategic thinker and problem solver with proven technical ability
he was manager, for 15 years, of the team that developed, marketed
and sold TRIPS, one of the world's leading transportation planning
More recently he has provided inputs to the OmniTRANS
transport modelling package by developing the user documentation
system. He has been actively involved in establishing the marketing
and support systems as well as contributing to the technical direction
of the package.
He has been working on a series of UK/Ireland
based projects which have been using OmniTRANS, and as part of this
work he has been providing on-site support and training to assist
in the transfer of knowledge and skills to users who are new to
the course of these various activities he has developed and written
many software applications, originally using Fortran but latterly
using Delphi and Ruby. He has developed several add-on packs for
OmniTRANS which provide functionality and productivity gains for
users of the package.
has been involved in projects that have have required innovative
approaches to transport planning where the consideration of the
quality, management and value of the data being used in the process
is as important as the process itself.
Recent work has focused on making use of 'open'
Public Transport time table data and using this to build Public
Transport networks suitable for modelling in an efficient and cost
effective manner. A feature of this work is the 'mapping' of public
transport routes to an underlying network structure.
