“Not just a writer who knows the buzz-words, Dave really knows manufacturing and systems . . . and he writes really well”
Dave has unique qualifications as an independent consultant and freelance writer serving both the developers and the users of software and systems for manufacturers. He has helped hundreds of users of manufacturing systems to select, implement, and get better results from their systems. In addition, he has performed analysis, written white papers and case studies, and advised the software developers to help them improve their products and market positioning. He has authored a number of reports for major analyst firms and is especially attuned to the needs and challenges of the mid-sized manufacturer.
Author of the books Computers in Manufacturing, MRP+, Why Systems Fail, among others, Dave has published hundreds of articles in various trade publications. Along with a partner, he launched Midrange ERP magazine (later renamed Midrange Enterprise) in 1996, to act as an information and education resource for the small to medium manufacturing community. After returning to private practice, he leveraged the broad market knowledge acquired through his manufacturing consulting practice and work as an independent journalist. Look for his articles and columns in APICS Magazine available in print and online.
Dave is a certified manufacturing engineer and is certified by APICS as a Supply Chain Professional, at the fellow level in Production and Inventory Management and in Integrated Resource Management. He contributed as a subject matter expert for the education material supporting the Certified Supply Chain Professional. As a frequent speaker at regional and national conferences and seminars, he can be heard in-person and on the web.
Dave is the current President of the Granite State Chapter of APICS and Vice President for education.
