GE--Structured Analysis and Design Training.
Towne, Violet A.
At the request of General Electric-Utica (GE), the State University of New York Institute of Technology at Utica/Rome and the Mohawk Valley Regional Education Center for Economic Development have developed a program to train GE software development personnel. GE is involved in the development of aerospace electronic equipment and related software for the federal government. Based on the assumption that the ability to design standardized software packages efficiently enhances the company's competitiveness and may allow it to continue as a major manufacturer in the region, the training program is designed to train employees on GE's newly acquired state-of-the-art workstations and in structured analysis and design methodology as applied to real-time systems. The university's training and professional development center worked with GE management personnel and the college's computer science faculty to develop a 50-hour training program. Course evaluations have been positive, and the program is seen to have been effective in increasing the company's position in the aerospace electronics market. (Author/MSE)
