Gary Richardson's Problem Solving Experience:
I planned, developed, and implemented upgraded wiring for an Aircraft Carrier Elevator PLC (Programmable Logic Control) which was recognized by the Navy and a Large Defense Contractor as part of a solution to bringing costs of re-work and testing down dramatically. This brought the contractor in under budget and ahead of schedule.
