Paul was a technical lead of implementation at DaimlerChrysler and was my main contact for when we sold 300+ seat of CAD quality software into DCX. We had to integrate this new technology directly into CATIA and the DCX design standards and processes. We also performed extensive internal marketing, feedback to ITI / CENIT / Dassault development, interfaced with then Enovia (CDM/VPM) tool suite, and developed and launched the entire process and usability of this new technology across DCX (including Germany) and then down into the supply chain. Then managed the continued enhancement, development and implementation across the extended enterprise, supply chain, PLM, AutoWEB, ANX, Covisint , including interfacing with many other processes.

Paul was not only responsible for the vehicle development but demonstrating to GM management how we were utilizing this new technology and PLM. Therefore my ultimate motivation was to make Paul successful while showing GM how our application and process was superior to the incumbent. We sold over a million dollars to GM for several years running, and infiltrated many disciplines, including R&D, Analysis, PLM, Concept, documentation, as well as manufacturing and others.
