Participated in program management, training, technical support, and development for UP's implementation of the Cory’s T.E.S.S. Locomotive Simulation Training Solution. Cory's is based in France; solution is includes 100+ PC's, 2 servers, 2 development stations, an international WAN, 4 support stations. The software is proprietary, gains access via the UP network as part of the training division. Nine local simulators, thirty remote.
Authored and distributed various training and technical documentation. Utilized presentation software for visual, hands-on training.
Supplemental Support for servers, development, web services, VOIP, networking, and databases not part of the Core Solution.
Project Manager, Administrator, and Primary Support for the Plateau E-Learning Management System and Simulation Analysis. Analysis was achieved with a graphing tool and helped with debugging, determined the effectiveness of training and improved railroad operations. Configured ELMS to accept simulation score at simulation end. Interfaced with PeopleSoft for employee recognition. Compiled ELMS reports for validation of system users and completed training.
Developed and deployed locomotive simulations, as per user request and standard, maintaining thorough in house documentation.
Learned railroad/engineer/locomotive train physics mechanics/operations to develop effective training/simulation.
Proposed direction to management on policy and system enhancement efforts.
Built database training and development components for team members and management. Trained simulation instructors across all aspects of simulator operations.
