first "Computer Engineered Ride" program; and a Critical Path/PERT
program timing system.
special consulting assignments, CTI has designed and developed a new, unique
automotive Engineering Release System for a Domestic Special Order
activity for their Engineering Department; provided a
crucial Productivity Improvement analysis and recommendation for a
large Truck Engineering department to achieve future product and

IBM’s 3780 protocol software which was oriented to high-speed line and
page printers. The package was tested, approved and purchased by
Northern Telecom and others for use with Data Products line printers. When a 3rd generation package, called FastSync®, was introduced it
became an immediate "hit" with several software houses specializing in
different market niches such as electronic filing of income tax
returns to the IRS, and certain banking oriented software houses. For

using a special type of patented solenoids, (called Multinoid™
actuators). Applications included various Electronic controlled
EGR valves, Electronic Power Steering and Power Brakes, Power Door
Locks, Power Hand Brakes, Automatic Transmissions, and
Electro-hydraulic valve actuation, to name a few.

savings and led to corporate wide use in all other engineering
• Increased profits by 48% in one year through
formation of a product-planning group to develop and merchandise new
Rotunda products to Ford and After Market dealerships. Boosted
dealership profits through a comprehensive strategy derived from

lines and dispose of unproductive ones. Also, investigated and
produced a comprehensive ten-year Option Business Review to suggest new
high potential options that would generate $82.6M in annual incremental
profits for the Corporation.
• Creatively, pioneered the automotive industry’s
Computer Engineered Ride system, automating the selection of front
suspension components to produce substantial reductions in Engineering
labor costs and workload demands. Also developed a sophisticated
computerized critical path tracking system to improve production cycles
and time-to-market, as well as reduce cost penalties incurred from last
