With the electrical schematics completed and approved and most of the time the hardware already assembled, programming begins for me.  Also a complete understanding of the mechanical systems that will be involved.

A spiral notebook is purchased just for this project with at least enough sections for the main program block and all the subroutines that will go with the program (notes).

I have to be in my office with the door locked, a wet board, my new notebook and MS Excel running on my PC. Ideas come from in different ways such as when I’m in the shower, social events, TV, and when I first wake up. My wife has told me many times I talk about my project in my sleep.  All of this comes from an inspiration for creating something that functions correctly and is easily understandable by all (especially the maintenance department).
