January 2000: Chief Executive Officer of School2000
Besides management, I was involved with Technology, Design, Development and Implementation of MMML (Multimode Multilingual) applications, which seamlessly integrates divergent technologies and products, such as Telephony (Voice and DTMF),
Mobiles (Voice, DTMF and SMS/Text), PCs, Internet, Ethernet, PDAs, Pocket PCs, Scanners, RDIF/Barcode/Smartcard/Magswipe cards, Email, Fax, RFID and Transducers into a single seamless application with one database.
Applications of MMML technologies have multi-language facilities, which means that parents can communicate with School2010 in Local, European, African, Indian, Middle and Far Eastern languages by voice and text, which is a legal requirement in the UK, since Jan 2010.
Involvement and Contracts:
1. Development, Supply and Maintenance of School2010, a Schools management system, using MMML (Multimode Multilanguage technology) that integrate Telephones, Fax, Scanners, Palms, Wireless PDAs, Barcode and RFID systems to offer an integrated Attendance, Grading and Administration solution to schools. Besides fully managing a school, the special advantages are (a) it reduces operational cost, effort and risk,
(b) allows parents to access their children’s Attendance, Grades, Homework, Behaviour notes and Timetable over the Internet and Telephones and (c) allows up to four parents (and guardians) to communicate in Local and Foreign languages. Reduces Teachers work load and allows teachers to work 24/7 from anywhere.
2. Development and supply of a Factory automation system, which allows individual production tasks to be monitored using on-line critical path analysis to identify/eliminate/reduce bottlenecks/delay. It also manages inventory using random or sequential binning systems and based on production requirements, critical and re-order controls. Delays and omissions are monitored and reported to appropriate officers on-line over Mobile, Telephones, Email, Pager etc, so they may reschedule production tasks.
3. Implementation of automated Hotel Maintenance Management systems across a multinational chain of 5-star hotels [Sheraton, Oberoi and Taj Mahal] to allow management of Corrective (breakdown), Preventive (scheduled), Predictive and Preventive maintenance tasks, extending the life and usefulness of assets, equipment and capital investment.
4. Design of an Interface protocol for a group of industrial engineers in the Netherlands, allowing them to include MMML features to their climate control solutions to the flower and vegetable growing industry in artificial greenroom conditions.
Nov 1976 – Dec 1999 Director, Lear Siegler, Inc., USA
Lear Siegler, Inc., Ball Road, Anaheim, California, USA is part of the Lear Jet Corporation. I worked in their data products division. I was involved in the design of the VDP-1000 minicomputer system, which was the first multi-user COBOL and BASIC system in the world.
VDP-1000 used Data-General’s Nova-4 and Eclipse instruction set. I was instrumental in the development and expansion of these systems to support Virtual memory capability, working with the University of California. While at Lear Siegler Inc, I also designed the first microprocessor-based terminal using Zilog Z-80 chips, thus laying the groundwork for later development of intelligent terminals - another first in the world.
I set up offshore manufacturing facilities for their Minicomputers, PCBs and Power supplies in the
Far East and Application Software development in India.
Based on these development Lear Siegler Inc, became the largest supplier of terminals and
Virtual Memory Minicomputers in the world
October 74 – Oct 76 Insco Electronics, Scotland :Managing Director
Insco was a Joint venture with the Scottish Development Agency in Glenrothes, Fife, Scotland that designed, manufactured and exported programmable power supplies and automatic test equipment. Most of our products went to the Ministry of Defense, although a substantial part was exported to Europe and Asia
Our test equipment was the first to use telescopic probes to measure voltages on PCBs in a production line.
Insco power-supplies were also the first to use switching pre-regulators to reduce thermal dissipation whilst providing linear regulation’s features at the output. The result was a much small power supplies that were used in submarines. The design was also used in power supplies for computers and peripherals as they were smaller and lighter and more efficient, making Insco one of the leading designers and suppliers of Programmable power supplies in UK.
June 72 – Sept 74 Burroughs/Unisys, UK/USA Head-Advanced Development
I joined the Burroughs as a Project Engineer. I designed the speed-tolerant Cassette drive that used direct-drive motors that replaced gears and pinch-roller technology. The variances and jitter in the tape movement was overcome by a speed tolerant encoding techniques. Due to reduced cost, ease of manufacture, and high reliability these were used as program-loaders for Unisys mainframe and midi systems.
I was part of the 8” diskette-drives team for small systems, the predecessor of the current 5.25” Diskette Drives. We initially used linear screws to position the heads using stepper motors and later switched to moiré-fringe position feedback systems with linear actuators to quadruple track density and as a result the capacity. The drives were manufactured in Scotland for the European requirement and at San Barbara and Westlake in California, for USA.
I also designed the head-per-track virtual-memory disc drives that reduced access time to such a low level that we were able to use it as a second layer and non-volatile memory/buffer for Virtual Memory systems in Unisys mainframes. Core memory was too expensive and this
Head-per-Track technology reduced the cost of VM computers.
The project I was proud of was ‘Tact-Fire’, which was a locate-and-fire system that
synchronised and coordinated information from rangefinders and other/multiple sources, delivering the explosive payload from tanks, ships and warplanes very accurately using real-time on-track feedback/guidance. The system triangulated the position of the target, adjusted itself to the wind, the dynamics (pitching/yaw/rocking motion) of the gun, and delivered the payload very accurately, with minimum human intervention/errors/delays. This resulted in a reduction of collateral assets during offensive tasks and delivered a much higher yield. I believe it is still in use today.
My work also involved a lot of interaction at senior-management level, working with decision makers. On many projects, I worked directly under Mr. Ray McDonald who was 80% shareholder, Chairman and MD of Burroughs/Unisys Empire.
Later as Head of Advanced Development, I was responsible for the design and manufacture of programmable controller chips and processors using dual ion-implant technology.
Later when the company merged with Rank Xerox and I developed unified a system software core that worked with widely differing hardware and operating systems. I worked with the students and staff of Industrial Engineering Division of IIT, Madras. After we proved the feasibility of using offshore programmer, I was part of the team that negotiated and formed a partnership with Tata of India, under Mr. Kholi, under Tata-Burroughs Limited. Burroughs/Unisys was the first to effectively use offshore programming resources in India. TBL became a major source of systems and application software and one of the largest internationally, even today.
Jan 71 - May 72 International Computers Ltd, UK R&D Engineer
I started as a Design Engineer anglicising Potter’s exchangeable disc pack drives EDS-8700 and EDS 8900 for use with ICL mainframes. I worked with a team that reduced the number of parts, PCBs, and Power requirements. This involved the redesign of the electronic systems using British components, which was completed in less than 6 months.
Impressed by the way the project was implemented, ICL asked me to do the same for two Magnetic tape transports. The first was an actuator-arm based unit. The other was a vacuum column drive. This was also the first time Switch-mode power components were successfully used in an analogue data/servo system.
July 69 – Dec 70 First National Citibank Advisor to SMEs
Immediately after graduation, I worked with Banks on two projects
1. The first was the use of Sensitivity and Frequency analysis to determine the dependence of measurable parameters such as rainfall, weather, tide etc to predict the state of the economy, which had a correlation to the liquidity balance (cash) in the bank. This was a pre-requisite to administer the ‘Cook’s Loan’. I was able to consistently predict the liquidity balance to an accuracy of less than 8%, never before achieved to that level of accuracy. Based on my predictions and other factors, the project was awarded to Citibank.
2. The second project was the management and monitoring of industrial finance to manufacturing industries. Part of this project involved the provision of deferred payment scheme, applied to purchase/sale of capital equipment and manufactured products
1. During my employment with DRI/ICL, I (along with Keith Walker) promoted one of the first centres of the International Voluntary Service (IVS), at Egham [near Staines, Middlesex with funding from ICL. We maintained gardens, and painted houses for the aged, sick and generally helped those who needed it. We were able to motivate school students to get involved and channeled their energy, focus and enthusiasm to community service.
2. I represented the Madras Boat Club in the international rowing regattas, where I was the Captain of the boats and the stroke of the winning coxed-fours in Asia, winning the South East Asian Championship in 1967.
I helped implement a Medical-health monitoring project at my mother’s hospital, Kalyani Mission hospital in Madras, India. Business men were asked to periodically have their sugar-level,
blood-pressure etc monitored once in 3 months, to portent failures, which was the basic to provide discounts for Insurance payments.
After ICL [International Computer Ltd] I was involved with management of my own projects. I learn that technical skills were merely like a gun, in the hands of a shooter. The success and failure of most technical projects depends on how good or bad the management was. My first exposure to Management was at Burroughs/Unisys was when I was appoint Senior Engineer.
Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the IIT Madras (B.Tech), graduating in 1969. I was one of the committee members of the Gymkhana, which were the social and cultural association and the leader of the Western Music Instrumental and Vocal group.
I designed a variable-length serial microprocessor, which adjusted the bit-length to suit the number of bits in the word used in the current processing task. Parallel processors used 8, 16, 32 and 64 bit fixed word configurations, which are wasteful when smaller number of bits was used. Also parallel processing is very demanding on the interconnection and semiconductor acreage as bits are moved in parallel (at the same time). Serial processors did not require as fewer interconnection lines. It is less dependent on synchronisation and is therefore much more reliable. I am convinced this is the way forward and this would already have become popular had it not been for the high investment in parallel processing hardware. This is under Patent application.
Many of the features of Schools Management used Technical and Management features that no other products could offer.
