Monitor & Control Systems
Track people, things & activities by making them visible
Indy using the Map Room in the movie
Building machines since the 1940s, Computer systems since the 1960s,
I now mainly build software that tracks and controls things -
factories, warehouses, scientific instrument systems

Lessons I have learned:
1. Simpler is better.
2. Use the simplest solution - not the most complex.
3. Do the minimum to get the job done - not the maximum.
4. If a feature is not absolutely necessary - eliminate it.
5. The most profitable feature of any product is quality.

BEGIN PROJECT - DQS - The process control system I promised,
summing up what I know about systems and control after 50+ years of systems programming.
DQS - the Distributed Queueing System - is a process control system coordinating multiple tasks spread across multiple computers and devices connected by networking.
It is intended for Factories, Warehouses and complex Scientific Instruments.
See: DQS Control System
FYI - systems programming, is different from the apps - single user programs you may be used to. Originally applied to the OS - operating systems - programs inside the computer that make hardware useable in a single computer, the term systems programming now applies to coordinating many processes spread across many computers and devices by networking.
