McKinsey and Company had done a
pre-study pilot (project Eureka) for this
implementation that predicted a savings
of $100 million/month or $1 Billion per
new vehicle program by instituting
Knowledge Management Frameworks

Transfer between Ford and Volvo/Mazda
June 1999 – May 2001
First Engineering Portal developed at
Ford Motor Company. Necessitated a
thorough review of all Portal vendors
and presentation of needs at the KM
World conference in Dallas in 2000.
Utilized off-shore capabilities – another
first at Ford Motor Company.
Coordinated activities between 20
stakeholders, 400 end-users and a team
of 25 in-house and off-shore developers.
March 1998 – February 2002
Coordinated J2EE, ActiveX (.NET),
HTML and CD-Rom based interactive
content for presentation and assessment
with diverse tools and vendors. Final
deployment was to more than 8000 endusers in Product Development
April 1997 – January 2001
Costly simulations, prototype builds and
wind tunnel testing were obviated by
quickly doing these go/no go” analysis.
Final deployment was for a “niche” group
of 25 research & development
engineers. Simulations typically cost in
the hundreds of thousand dollars, while
prototype builds are upwards of 2 million
dollars in cost.
These have been deployed on various Unix platforms, Linux servers and Windows servers via application servers
such as: WebLogic, Web Sphere, Tomcat, Sun (iPlanet) and Enhydra using MVC architecture, POJOs (Plain Old
Java Objects) and EJBs (Enterprise Java Beans).
The basis behind forming Mindware, Inc. based out of Michigan, was to create Knowledge Based Systems on
the web to enable Enterprises to operate efficiently via Portals, Expert Systems, eLearning and coordinated
Process management in the Research, Advanced Engineering and Product Development facilities of the
Automotive sector.
BDrive, based out of the Bay Area in California, was the genesis of Mindware, Inc. to move from a consulting
model to a product centric model. Most of the technologies followed by the two companies utilized concepts in
Systems Engineering, Model Driven Architecture (MDA), Agile Programming, Collaboration, Code Reuse and a
strong decoupling of presentation from the backend source systems. The premise of BDrive was to provide the
Power for Intelligent Collaborative Infrastructures that coordinated New Product Development (NPD) with PLM,
ERP, CRM and other enterprise Legacy systems to enable fast, scalable and secure information transfer between
people and processes.
