DMC Attains Most Siemens Certified Engineers in the USA

DMC just attained a rather significant milestone - we now have eight people who have met all of the requirements for the Global Technical Certification in the SIMATIC Technology areas of S7 PLCs, SIMATIC HMIs, and SIMATIC Networking. This is signifcant from several points of view.  The first is that the certification test is, quite bluntly, pretty darn hard - I think the pass rate is less than 40%.  Secondly, in order to be part of the Siemens Solution Partner Program, an integra...

DMC Fun on, and off, and in, the Water

Like we do about three times a year, we had an all-company all day off-site meeting last Friday. The agenda for the day was pretty fantastic - we all loaded up on my boat at Belmont Harbor (maybe a little crowded), headed south to the Chicago Harbor Lock, & then down the river to Ping Tom Park. Once at Ping Tom Park, we broke up into several small groups and handed video cameras to each group with the mission of recording stories that capture DMC's culture, capabilities, lessons learn...

Happy 14th Anniversary DMC!

Remember When, 1996: "Macarena" was at the top of the charts NBC had 8 of the top 10 shows, including ER, Seinfeld & Friends, (and you could record those shows using a state of the art Hi-Fi 4-head VCR), Gas was going for about $1.25/gallon With a 100Mhz WinBook XP5, with 16MB RAM & an 810 MB HDD, a little bit of knowledge, and a lot to learn, I started DMC on July 29th. Anniversaries are a fun time to reflect on the changes that have happened over time.  ...

DMC Deploys Checklists

Taking a page from Dr. Atul Gawande’s The Checklist Manifesto, DMC has released its own set of common task checklists. Gawande, a surgeon, makes a distinction between errors of ignorance and errors of ineptitude, blaming most modern mistakes on the latter. Failures occur not due to what one doesn’t know, but because people do not properly make use of what they do know. Gawande researches highly complicated tasks including performing surgery, building skyscrapers, and flying commer...

Shamrock Shuffle 2010 & Commitment Contracts

Team DMC competed for the fifth straight year in the Shamrock Shuffle, an 8K (4.97 mile) race in downtown Chicago. This year the weather was a little wet and chilly but nowhere near as bad as last year. There was a lot of internal and external competition for this race, which I am certain helped all of us improve our health, get in a little better shape, and give some pretty impressive results in the race.

Automotive Testing Expo 2009

Today I had the chance to peruse more cutting edge testing technologies at the Automotive Testing Expo 2009 in Novi, Michigan. It was good to meet a few new vendors and peers, as well as run into a couple existing clients. Though apparently smaller than last year, the show has a lot to offer, including a robot-mounted Harley Davidson motorcycle (don't worry, it only rides on the dyno... for now). Product categories included: Test simulation NVH analysis Occupant/pedestrian safet...
