MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENTS
* Cost Engineering Lead, on a Modeling and Simulation team, for a Homeland Secur
ity product, with resources from multiple company locations, and work-share acro
ss multiple companies. The Modeling Team created an automated modeling process
tool, where cost, performance, and simulation models were used to depict the be
st cost or performance of a selected quantified input (i.e., FLIR sensor), in a
simulated environment. Cost as an Independent Variable was used to modify borde
r control coverage, and varying cost. (Patent created).
* Co-Established a proprietary protocol for customers to send, and receive, long
-distance, customer specific data, by using a wireless, distributed network. Th
is technology secured 100% market share, in 2002, for customers that had no way
to communicate to their equipment due to distance, or in hazardous environments.
Additionally, a low power version was created for customers that needed this
protocol, and hardware design in an OEM device, for customer embedded use.
* Managed the rewrite of application software using object-oriented programming.
A generic-based framework was established for each type of device: handheld,
personal computing (PC), and mobile tracking (MT) devices. For each specific ty
pe of device, the characteristic software inherited the framework. The rewrite
in application software support, in 1 year, increased from 7 to 16 for handheld
devices, 2 to 8 for PC devices, and 0 to 1 for MT devices. (Enfora Quality Award
- 2002)
* Managed a team that created a generic set of standard test set equipment, soft
ware interface functions, and test suite software written in Lab Windows, where
each different Line Replaceable Unit would start with the generic test station,
and build upon it. A set of generic software Interface functions were used to ta
lk to each piece of equipment located in each type of ATE Functional Test Statio
n. (TI DSEG Teaming Award )
* Lead to a software team (3 engineers in US, and 3 in Bangalore, India) that d
eveloped the software product interface and tool called ASSET that is used to vi
ew Boundary Scan (JTAG) connections at real-time by implementing the ASSET libra
ry into a software application. (TI DSEG Teaming Award for the development of A
SSET)

RECOGNITIONS AND TESTIMONIALS
2009 - Recognition from Supervisor, Richard Stonich - Program Engineering Busine
ss Operations Manager "Lisa is the 'go-to person' in the NCS TX Cost Estimation
group, learning the cost estimation process, being a SME for cost estimation, Bi
d Coordination expert, and process improvement specialist. Lisa has worked extr
emely hard at being perfect in this job. She strives to do the right thing. Sh
e accepts personal responsibility to meet commitments and is accountable."
2008 - Email Recognition from Raytheon LRAS3 Program Engineering Department Mana
ger to myself, "concerning my effort as the Cost Volume Manager for the Engineer
ing proposal effort "I am taking a moment to say thanks for your help with the L
RAS3 production ramp-up proposal earlier this fall. After much fact-finding, ne
gotiating and other delays, that contract has finally been awarded for $XM. Ev
en more important than the award, the program is now able to accelerate producti
on deliveries of the LRAS3 to meet the US Army's 2009 fielding plan. Your abil
ity and willingness to take ownership of the test equipment part of this proposa
l was a big part of the success."
Testimonial from Tom Shields - Raytheon's Homeland Security, Modeling and Simula
tion Sr. Manager, "Lisa is a highly motivated, energetic, and customer focused e
mployee. She puts in the time and effort necessary to do the job well and on ti
me. She works extremely well with others, and listens to ideas, and implements t
hem using excellent task coordination and requirements management skills. In one
year, Lisa took on a difficult (maybe even impossible) challenge in trying to l
earn everything on cost and system engineering from her manager prior to his ret
irement, and did a creditable job absorbing the essentials of her manager's expe
rience. She is outgoing and willing to jump in to any new situation. She made s
trong contributions to the Homeland Security Enterprise Campaign, and led the so
ftware development and integration of performance and cost models running in a m
odel center, and was a key player assigned as the System Cost Model lead, workin
g in a dynamic cross-organizational team, with multiple companies.
Endorsement from Pete Fleming - Raytheon NCS Operations and Engineering Tech. Di
rector, "Lisa has successfully proven herself as a software system engineer, and
has received excellent feedback meeting high performance demands from her custo
mers and suppliers (of a technical nature). She also has good experience in po
rtable maintenance aids and tools as well as field support and automated testing
, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and Opportunities and Requirements (O&
R). I've worked with Lisa for many years and she is a top notch employee. Lisa
is an engineer who has done program/project management and loves working with c
ustomers and suppliers. She would be an excellent candidate overseeing design,
and integration of COTS software. Lisa would also be great overseeing technical
requirements, and interfaces with subcontractors, customers, and the Technical
Requirements Management (TRM) team."
Endorsement from Jim Marischen - Raytheon NCS Future Combat Systems Program Mana
ger, and Program Management Director - "I have known Lisa for over 19 years, fir
st as an aspiring engineer at Texas Instruments and then as a project lead for N
CS Combat Systems here in McKinney. Throughout that time, I have been very impr
essed with her tenacity to get the job done. It didn't matter whether the task
was her direct assignment, if it was important to the team she made sure it got
done. As a self motivator, I have seen her pick up some of the most complex cir
cuit designs on her own and bring them to a success. She especially impressed m
e with the way she completed the IEEE 1149.1 (JTAG) control emulators. She has
since moved into project management and systems engineering tasks that she has e
qually conquered. I believe she will bring some added excitement to your team th
at you won't regret. Please give Lisa top consideration for this position."
2004-2006 - Co-Chair - Cost Engineering Technical Interchange Group (TIG) - main
tained cost engineering Technical Interchange Group (TIG) between multiple locat
ions, and business divisions, and created Cost Engineering Use Cases that descri
be the Cost Engineering interface between multiple tools, and disciplines.
