I worked with Bonnie to implement a near real time model of a continuous casting process along with a database architecture to support the development of a quality tracking system for the steel slabs produced. This was a novel development that required a complex finite difference model to be fed with live plant data from a number of different systems and then its results, along with summaries of the live data, to be stored in a database.

Despite having no steel industry knowledge Bonnie very quickly understood the process and the objectives of the project. She quickly determined that the proposed methodology was flawed and developed an alternative system architecture which she built and proved.

It was a pleasure to work with Bonnie. She is highly intelligent and innovative. She has the wonderful ability to challenge in a positive manner to move a project forward.
