4. Our Sponsor Keith Price

  • Keith Price leads the quality team at Agilents Life Sciences and Chemical Analysis group (LSCA), with responsibilities for its quality management system, business process metrics system, and customer loyalty.
  • He joined HP/Agilent in 1984 as an electronic engineer and then moved into a variety of quality consulting and management roles.
  • He holds a masters degree in quality systems management from Napier University in Edinburgh, Scotland.

5. Our Sponsor Michael McCaffrey

  • Trained as a chemist and worked for many years engaged in liquid crystal research and development. Economic, business and personal changes at the time caused me to reevaluate my career choices and I retrained in the computer science field. Michael McCaffrey have spent the last 20 years in a variety of process development, process improvement efforts - lifecycle creation, inspections implementations, measurement efforts, cost/estimation improvements, quality championing, etc.

6. Agilents Existing System

  • Agilent does not have a system implemented
  • Therefore we are using VMWARE, which will present portability

7. Sponsor Requirements of Project

  • To design a webpage that can be accessed by the Life Sciences & Chemical Analysis team at Agilent Technologies (the webpage will allow them to log into their database)
  • A webpage will actually query these items:
  • 1. What Product 2. Which Phase it is in 3. The Product Name 4. Product Number
  • 5. Version
  • 6. Manager in Charge of Product
  • 7. Whether its Hardware, Software, or Chemical
  • 8. Product Description
  • To develop a simple database to query products that are released and in development. We are to track different phases of each research and development product of Agilent Technologies: Life Sciences and Chemical Analysis Department with product release date and financial project.

8. Key Functions of Our Product & Deliverables

  • The functional aspects of this particular database will track hardware, software, and chemical analysis.
  • It will track phases and all deliverables of the department and project a simple website interface.

  • Our deliverables are:
      • Tracking Database -We are implementing one database that tracks deliverables of each phase of every product life-cycle. It will need to be a form where information about the product and its status can be entered.
      • Web Page Queries the following items
        • What product
        • Which phase it is in
        • The product name
        • Product Number
        • Version
        • Manager in charge of product
        • Whether its Hardware, Software, or Chemicals
