Initially, worked on a pilot project, "Picasso", producing a platform of
modular software components, of system services, to promote the reuse of
code within software development at BNS. Designed and built several of
these modules to a client/server architecture, in the DCE environment,
under AIX/RS6000. Extensive use of DCE RPCs. Joined the project late in
the design phase. Initially worked on a Software Environment Model and
then several Code Organisation Models of modules, in Yourdon using Cadre's
TeamWork. Introduced DCE RPC to the project team. All application front-end
prototypes generated using aic (UIM) X/Motif tool. All coding written in
C. Mid-way coding phase of project, the project moved over to Encina RPC's/TIDL,
translated IDL to TIDL, to use TM monitor, and transparent binding. Later
the project moved into Caseware configuration management tool. Attended
a 2-day course on Caseware.

Took the initiative in creating a hypertext documentation tool in an
attempt to improve project communication. Implemented scripts to generate
hyper-text files, for ease of adding text to a project-wide help tool.
